Hoping to met Trump’s advisers and if it is possible the newly elected president himself, Boris Johnson came to New York.
Johnson will travel to Washington on Tuesday for a meeting with the Republicans from Congress. The meeting aims to discuss foreign policy with Trump’s allies. It comes amid considerable potential foreign policy divisions in the administration of Trump over Russia’s role in Syria and support for NATO.
Trump suggested Nigel Farage back in November to be the Britain’s ambassador to the U.S., and by that he intentionally challenge the Government.
After saying that Trump’s comments about women were unacceptable, the Prime Minister still risked colliding with Trump.
In May’s first television interview of the year she was asked about the objections which appeared in the last weeks of the election campaign and about Trump’s comments towards woman.
She told Sophy Ridge in Sky News: “I think that’s unacceptable but I think Donald Trump himself has said that and has apologised for it.
“But the relationship the UK has with the United States is about something much bigger than the relationship between the two individuals as president and prime minister.We have a long standing special relationship with the United States, it is based on shared values, and it’s a relationship where we feel in the UK we can say to the US if we disagree with something.”
May’s comments came after Donald Trump expressed his thrill about meeting her in Washington.
It is expected that the Foreign Secretary last night at Trump Towers met with Jared Kushner Trump’s son-in-law, Steve Bannon which is Trump chief strategist and Trump’s national security adviser Lt Gen Michael Flynn. He also is going to meet the Congressional leaders Paul Ryan, Bob Corker and Mitch McConnell.
Trump’s comments about Muslims infuriated the Foreign Secretary so much that he said that Trump is “unfit” to be the President of U.S.
But a close friendship has developed between Trump and Farage. And back in November Farage became the first foreign leader to meet the newly elected President.
In couple of weeks after the inauguration ceremony, Trump and the Prime Minister are due to meet in Washington.
It seems like after Trump had his first conversation with Mrs. May over the phone, according to his impression their relationship will be similar to Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan.
