PRESIDENT TRUMP: Thank you very much. It’s great to have Prime Minister May from the United Kingdom and her representatives, who are people we know very well through recent trade negotiations.
I have to say, we’ll be doing a lot of trading with the United Kingdom, and we look forward to it. And we have gotten to know each other over the last period of a year, and it’s a real honor to have you here.
Thank you very much.
PRIME MINISTER MAY: Well, thank you very much, Mr. President. It’s good to be here. And as you say, we’ve had many discussions between our representatives and ourselves on a whole variety of issues, including trade, which will be important for us, but some other issues — foreign policy issues, our security and defense relationship, which of course is the closest — the U.K. and the U.S. is the closest we have. And it’s great that that continues.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: Well, thank you very much for being here.
PRIME MINISTER MAY: Thank you.
