Theresa May, Donald Trump Plan Spring Meeting


May's joint chiefs of staff, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, flew across the Atlantic to meet members of Trump's team in mid-December, May's office confirmed to Bloomberg in an e-mailed statement late Thursday, saying it was part of the buildup to the premier's first trip to meet the new president. Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage, who campaigned for Trump in the run-up to the election, met the president-elect several days before May was able to arrange an introductory phone call. She was then forced to dismiss Trump's suggestion that Farage should be appointed as United Kingdom ambassador to the US.

In the email, leaked to The Sunday Times, Sir Kim told the Prime Minister Mr Trump was "an outsider and an unknown quantity", a put-down thought to have provoked Mr Trump's backing for Mr Farage.

Trump invited May to visit him "as soon as possible" after he was elected president in November.

May's top staffers met Trump aides last month to finalize the spring visit.

"This was part of a process leading towards the PM's first visit with President-elect Trump".

President-elect Donald Trump listens to a question as he speaks to reporters at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach Fla. Trump gave a videotaped deposition on Thursday Jan. 5 2017 for a lawsuit stemming from a clash wit
It will be the first meeting for the two leaders

During the call, May's second such conversation with Trump since his election on November 8, the prime minister "suggested it would be a good idea for key staff from both teams to meet". Farage says he plans to attend Trump's inauguration.

He said: "It is entirely appropriate for the British Prime Minister and the American President, whoever they are, whatever parties they are, to have a good working relationship".

Senior ministers will be relieved that a visit to Washington is close to being finalised in the Prime Minister's diary.

May criticized Trump's proposed ban on Muslim emigration into the U.S.as "divisive, unhelpful and wrong" in December 2015 while serving as Britain's home secretary. Before they took up posts in May's new government in July, Timothy said on Twitter that he did not want "any "reaching out" to Trump", while Hill tweeted: "Donald Trump is a chump".

However, according to Euractiv, neither Berlin nor Paris have indicated that their leaders are in line to visit with Mr. Trump, nor have any other of the European Union (EU) member state administrations, meaning that Britain is paving the way in Europe for forging links with the Trump administration.
