And Tory MPs in the Black Country and Staffordshire have leaped to her defence over the controversial Brexit deal, which has angered many of those in the pro-Leave camp.

But former Conservative leader William Hague warned party rebels that voting against the Prime Minister's final deal could result in Brexit being indefinitely delayed or halted altogether.

He flew out to Washington DC to convince Mr Trump that Iran would "go for a bomb" if he deserted the agreement, with his words falling on deaf ears as the United States later announced it would be pulling out of the deal.

Set to be published in a white paper on Thursday, the plan envisages Britain continuing to trade freely with the remaining European Union in goods under a "common rulebook", while accepting restrictions on trade in services.

The Prime Minister will try to get back on the front foot after shoring up her team following the shattering departures of David Davis and Boris Johnson in protest at her "weak" Brexit trade plans.

"With our leave date fast approaching we have no time for the mechanisms of a leadership challenge", he said.

Asked about the increasingly perilous position of Prime Minister Theresa May, the President declined to offer her any support, merely saying her ongoing leadership was a matter for the British people.

He was enthusiastic about Johnson, calling him "a friend of mine".

"He added life and colour".

He said selling the policy would "stick in the throat" and he could not stand by waving "white flags" of surrender, meaning he had to quit.

But there was growing speculation about Mr Johnson's plans on Monday after he failed to attend a meeting of the Government's Cobra emergencies committee as well as a summit of Western Balkan nations being held in London.

The two sides are then in stalemate, with the Brexiteers deploying guerrilla war tactics on No 10 to apply maximum pressure and cause maximum discomfort as they pick and choose different ways to go after her.

May has faced a backlash over the plan from Brexit hardliners in her Conservative Party who say it gives too many concessions to the European Union, but she has support from moderates and there has been no challenge to her leadership.

May has been trying for months to solve internal issues within the ruling Conservatives about which course to take before Brexit takes effect on March 29, 2019.

"Theresa May's Government is in meltdown", deputy leader of the Labour Party Tom Watson said.

Earlier she said she had chaired a "productive" meeting of her reshaped cabinet ahead of the publication later this week of a full policy document on Brexit. "I have always liked him", he said, adding he had not spoken with Prime Minister May since Johnson quit.

But May said talks with European Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker, EU President Donald Tusk and other EU leaders at the weekend suggested her plan "can ensure that we move the negotiations on". And it is significant that in recent days we have started to see more and more businesses speak out about the very real threat which Brexit poses to jobs, investment and living standards right across the UK.

"London's course in relations with Russia is that aggressive and inertial, that one can hardly expect that one resignation, even of a foreign minister, can turn it other way", former Russian Ambassador in the U.S. and now a senator, Sergey Kislyak said.
