Trump Pledges Support For 'Most Special Relationship' Between US, Britain

President Donald Trump and Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May met on Friday to renew what the new U.S. leader described as the "most special relationship" between their nations. And the BBC reports May said Trump told her he was "100% behind North Atlantic Treaty Organisation", an organization he has repeatedly derided as obsolete.

May said: "I'm delighted to be able to congratulate you on what was a stunning election victory".

May went on to say that with the Brexit vote, the British people made a decision to "take back control of the things that matter to us - things like our national borders and immigration policy, and the way we decide and interpret our own laws - so that we are able to shape a better, more prosperous future for the working men and women of Britain".

Asked by reporters whether he was planning to lift Russian Federation sanctions, he said: "It's very early to be talking about that".

She took a different tune than Trump when speaking of worldwide institutions like North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the IMF, saying the two were born by "our two nations working together". Trump was glowing about the special relationship, which he said had "never been stronger", adding that "a free and independent Britain is a blessing to the world".

It was also Mr Trump's first tryst with face-to-face diplomacy as he welcomed his first foreign visitor to the White House.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has told US Republicans the United Kingdom and America must stand up for their interests but can not return to "failed" interventionist policies.

If they wanted to display closeness - the image of Theresa May hand in hand with Donald Trump could hardly have been more useful for Downing Street.

And there was the part where Trump talked about Putin as if he were a kid on the playground.

Both May and Trump began by praising the "special relationship" between the U.S. and U.K. May emphasized the importance of a trade deal between the two countries given plans for the U.K.to leave the European Union.

When asked about his upcoming discussion with the Russian president, Trump said he wanted to have good relations with Russia but played down any talk that he was ready to lift USA sanctions against Moscow.

"Whenever there is something that I find unacceptable, I will say that to Donald Trump", May, Britain's second female prime minister, following Margaret Thatcher, told the BBC. Last week, Ms May admitted she would not raise Mr Trump's controversial and demeaning comments about women, despite terming them them as unacceptable.

Aware that Brexit will shape her legacy, May welcomed her early visit to the United States, a boost to her attempts to show that Britain can prosper outside the European Union despite criticism at home for cozying up to Trump.

He said he "expressed Congress's interest in moving forward with bilateral trade talks".
