During a dramatic statement to the House of Commons, North Shropshire MP Owen Paterson pressed the embattled Prime Minister over when she would be prepared to abandon negotiations with the European Union in favour of no-deal.
He is a vote victor, and in its current crisis that is exactly what the Conservative Party needs.
Mr Paterson is considered influential, as a former minister who wants a hard Brexit.
Trump said he had not spoken with May, adding: "Boris Johnson is a friend of mine".
The next resignation came the following day from Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who informed the prime minister's office that he would be resigning before officially sending his extremely sharp resignation letter, in which he feared the U.K.'s new Brexit plan or "the government's song to sing", would leave the country an European Union colony and would represent the death of the "Brexit dream".
However, one high-profile county Conservative pulled no punches in his call for Mrs May to step down.
"I think they needed to test this on somebody going a bit faster", he told onlookers. In response to those comments, May's spokesman said that she "looks forward to showing Donald Trump the UK and talking to Donald Trump about the UK and is confident that he will leave the UK with a positive view".
"I don't see them pulling the plug on her", Polly Mackenzie, director of cross-party think-tank Demos, told AFP.
The president was also asked if the prime minister should stay in power.
There are those who have been quick to say how they are glad to see the back of Davis and especially Johnson, arguing they have not been up to their jobs.
In a scathing resignation letter to the Prime Minister, Mr Johnson said that, under her leadership, the United Kingdom was "heading for a semi-Brexit", with the dream of an outward-looking global Britain "dying, suffocated by needless self-doubt".
Ms Allan offered her support but warned the European Union may try to dilute her proposal, which would lead some MPs to see no-deal as the best solution.More news: Paris, Russia, to turn French for World Cup semifinals
In a tweet created to show she had not been knocked off course, Mrs May said: "Productive Cabinet meeting this morning - looking ahead to a busy week".
"In a vote of confidence in the House of Commons I would support the Prime Minister that's because I don't want to have another General Election, there isn't a vote of confidence in either case at the moment, I don't think many people want another election, we only had one a year ago". May was appointed to succeed him without a vote by her Conservative Party's activists.
Two Conservative lawmakers, Maria Caulfield and Ben Bradley, quit as vice-chairs of the party on Tuesday over opposition to May's proposals.
Not since 1982 - over the Falklands, a literal war - have two Secretaries of State resigned within 24 hours.
"As I said then, the Government now has a song to sing. But there are people in Labour and the Liberal Democrats who wish to damage the sort of Brexit that many of my constituents have voted for".
"The Government now has a song to sing".
"I have not, no, I have not", he said.
"I really can't say right now", Trump said.
The outgoing Brexit Secretary said the Government had gone further than it should have in the negotiations, and warned it was a "dangerous strategy".
A challenge can certainly not be ruled out, but despite misgivings about the deal, there does not seem to be much appetite for a leadership contest amongst rank and file MPs.
Noting that the U.K.is in political turmoil before departing for Europe, President Trump failed to offer a word of encouragement in support of Theresa May, observing that her future was "up to the people".
