President Trump To Meet With British Prime Minister Theresa May

President Trump is hosting his first world leader Friday, holding talks and a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. May and Trump separately addressed congressional Republicans on Thursday, with May touting the benefits of a strong United Nations, NATO alliance, and European Union, all organizations Trump has disparaged. Britain is looking to forge a bilateral trade deal with the U.S. as it exits the EU, so trade is expected to be a major focus of the meeting. World leaders are unfamiliar with Trump and most of his top advisers, so May’s visit is also a sort of testing of the waters; in announcing Friday’s schedule, the White House misspelled May’s first name, leaving out the “h.” The schedule has since been corrected. Trump had also been scheduled to meet with Mexican President Enrique PeΓ±a Nieto next Tuesday, but PeΓ±a Nieto canceled the event over Trump’s expedited plan to build a Mexico border wall.
