The World Gets Alined With the Stars

The two Great English Speaking Counties together again in their Special Relationship! m/r

What a special relationship! Trump gets touchy-feely with Theresa as he declares 'great days lie ahead' and reveals he's meeting the Queen (let's just hope he keeps his hands to himself that day)

  • PM has sealed her fledgling alliance with Donald Trump with a warm handshake at White House 
  • Signed the visitors' book before viewing a bust of Churchill the president has moved into the Oval Office 
  • Held a joint press conference and went to working lunch 
  • Earlier May laid wreath at Arlington National Cemetery before heading for first talks with Trump 
  • Says she hopes to have a close relationship with the new President because 'sometimes opposites attract'
  • Urged Trump to beware of Vladimir Putin and called NATO 'the cornerstone of the West's defense'
The pair bonded over a bust of Winston Churchill in the American president's office and were later seen walking hand-in-hand from down the West Wing Colonnade on their way to a joint press conference.
Trump grabbed May's hand as they approached the cameras, patting it twice, and then letting it go. 
May announced at a news conference that the Queen has invited Trump for a state visit to the UK and revealed that the president and first lady had accepted.
Trump and May opened a new chapter in the 'special relationship' between the allied nations as they met today for talks on trade, NATO and the fight against ISIS. 
The fellow conservatives sealed their fledgling alliance in the Oval Office with a warm handshake. Trump said it was 'an honor' to have May in the White House. May replied: ‘Well thank you Mr President.’
