(Reuters) - British and U.S. will have a positive discussion on future trade ties, despite the latter's criticism of May's plan, British said on Friday.

Trump directly criticised May's strategy on the eve of their meeting, saying it probably killed off hope of a U.S.-UK trade deal.

"The hasn't yet had a chance to discuss with the the white paper, which was after all only published yesterday, and I know she's looking forward to the opportunity to discuss with the how we can take forward the big opportunities for increasing trade and investment between the UK and the that she mentioned last night during the dinner at Blenheim," Hammond told reporters before a meeting of EU in

"I saw that the president was nodding furiously last night as she was speaking last night and I'm sure there will be a very positive discussion between them today," he said.
