Tacking in a different direction, President Trump said that the relationship between the United States and Britain is “very, very strong” and praised Prime Minister Theresa May for working “very hard” with him during a just-finished NATO summit in Brussels, NBC News reports.
“Trump’s remarks came just hours after the British tabloid The Sun published an interview with Trump in which he torched May over her handling of the U.K.’s impending divorce from the European Union and, perhaps more important, said that if her plan for Brexit goes forward it would “probably end” the chances of a bilateral trade agreement between the U.S. and Britain.”
“When asked directly whether he regretted the interview, which appeared at a time when May’s job is on the line over her proposal for a ‘soft’ Brexit, Trump closed his eyelids and rolled his eyes.”
Jonathan Swan: “This is Trump saying whatever’s on his mind and damn the consequences — always playing to his base, and refusing to put himself in another leader’s shoes. Trump’s doesn’t have a great relationship with May, but it’s not as bad as his relationship with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.”Save to Favorites
