Theresa May became the first world leader who the new U.S. president met after his Jan. 20 inauguration. She extended an invitation to Trump from Queen Elizabeth II to come to the U.K., which he accepted agreeing to pay an official visit this year.

He also spoke about fantastic relations with Theresa May who, in turn, described them as good.

According to her, she seeks to develop a special relationship between London and Washington, involving shared interests in such areas as trade, security and defense.
