Trump can rest assured knowing that U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May will be counted among his allies in the U.K.
The long-standing “special relationship” between America and Britain means the two share strong ties over a multitude of issues, including trade, defense and foreign policy.
The prime minister has described the U.S. as a “good friend” to the U.K.
May and Trump have not always seen eye-to-eye, however.
The two have clashed over some issues, including U.S. tariffs on imports from allies, the Iran nuclear deal and most recently the separation of migrant families at the U.S. border.
May’s leadership is currently in doubt after the resignations of two of her key ministers, Brexit Secretary David Davis and Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson. Trump the other day said that the U.K. was in “somewhat turmoil” after the departures.
