Trump-May Relations Reaches Into A New Era


Theresa May and Donald Trump briefly joined hands as they walked along the White House Colonnade on Friday, approaching the joint press conference at which they sought to demonstrate their commitment to the special relationship between Britain and the United States.

The Prime Minister was keen to get off on the right foot with President, and although their hand-holding would seem to demonstrate success on that front, some observers have suggested Mrs May didn't seem entirely comfortable with the gesture.

At the press conference, Mr Trump said: "Great days lie ahead for our two peoples and our two countries.

"On behalf of our nation, I thank you for joining us here today as a really great honour."

Mrs May said: "Thank you for inviting me so soon after your inauguration and I'm delighted to be able to congratulate you on what was a stunning election victory.

"And, as you say, the invitation is an indication of the strength and importance of the special relationship that exists between our two countries, a relationship based on the bonds of history, of family, kinship and common interests.

Responding to a question from the Sun's Tom Newton Dunn asking how a vicar's daughter and a brash businessman might get along, Mr Trump replied: "I'm not as brash as you might think. I'm a people person and I think you are too Theresa. I think were going to have a fantastic relationship."
