PM May prepares for Oval Office meeting with Trump

WASHINGTON: Theresa May is to become the first world leader to meet Trump since he became US president on January 20. The hour-long talks in the Oval Office in Washington are likely to cover defence and security challenges but top of May’s agenda is likely to be a free trade deal between the UK and USA post-Brexit. Ahead of the meeting, May is expected to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery, Virginia. On Thursday, May received two standing ovations from Republicans as she spoke of renewing the “special relationship” between Britain and America.
