Speaking to reporters, Trump also confirmed he would visit the British capital, putting an end to speculation that the trip may have been quietly scuppered due to a backlash in Britain among the public and lawmakers. "We'll be going to London".

Mr Trump has been making his G20 debut in Hamburg, and his administration's changed attitude to trade and climate change has altered the atmosphere at the summit.

Asked if the visit would still go ahead, Trump said it would.

The speaker of Parliament's House of Commons made clear he would not invite the President to address MPs, and a petition calling for Trump's official visit to be canceled gained more than 1.8 million signatures.

"Prime Minister May and I have developed a very special relationship and I think trade will be a very big factor between our two countries", he said.

Khan, the first Muslim mayor of a major western European city, contended that Trump is an Islamophobe.

The meeting will focus on "how government can help American ingenuity and technological innovation continue to thrive", the official said.

Despite the agreement on trade, officials are still struggling to reach an agreement on climate change with Trump, who is at odds with the other G20 leaders after his decision last month to pull the United States out of the 2015 Paris climate change accord.

A meeting between the president and the prime minister on the margins of the Group of 20 summit in Hamburg went longer than scheduled, a United Kingdom official said, and was dominated by discussions of a free-trade deal between the two countries.

Queen Elizabeth then failed to mention Trump's visit in a speech to Parliament, an absence that raised eyebrows because she did mention an upcoming visit from the Spanish royal couple.

"There's no country that could possibly be closer than our countries, for a long time", Trump said.

The US president hailed the "very special relationship" he had developed with May.

"When I brought it up with him, what I did was I encouraged him to bring the United States back into the Paris agreement".

At a news conference, May stated that she feels optimistic about the U.S. -U.K. deal.

Christopher Meyer, a former British ambassador to Washington, said Trump's statement of intent was a "very good sign for the future" and would be "useful" to May.
