I enthusiastically anticipate today’s joint press conference with President Trump and Prime Minister May. If her speech yesterday is any measure, it should be a very positive joint appearance. As reported in the Washington Times yesterday:
In a speech to a congressional Republican retreat for formulating strategy, Ms. May said the upset victory by Mr. Trump and the GOP wins in the House and Senate promised “a new era of American renewal.”
Ms. May, the leader of her country’s Conservative Party who became prime minister in the aftermath of the Brexit vote, also vowed that the U.S. could count on the U.K. to help fight Islamic terrorism and other threats around the globe.
With conservative governments in place in both the U.S. and the U.K., they were presented an opportunity to renew the “special relationship” the two countries have historically enjoyed, Ms. May said.
“I speak to you not just as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, but as a fellow conservative who believes in the same principles that underpin the agenda of your party,” she said. “The value of liberty. The dignity of work. The principles of nationhood, family, economic prudence, patriotism — and putting power in the hands of the people.”
