    Trump-May meeting a win for two great nations

    Trump-May meeting a win for two great nations

    By Post Editorial Board

    It’s good to see the US-UK “special relationship” is back, along with the Oval Office bust of Winston Churchill, after President Trump’s meeting Friday with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

    The two very different leaders owe their offices to twin populist surprises — Trump’s remarkable Election Day win, and the British vote to leave the European Union, which prompted the resignation of May’s predecessor, David Cameron.

    The surprises kept up with the failure of the elites’ doomsday predictions: UK growth sped up after the Brexit vote, and beat expectations in the latest quarter, too. Over here, the “Trump rally” has pushed the Dow above 20,000, with polls also showing average Americans’ economic optimism on the rise.

    The two countries seem to be in step again — as in the days of Ronald Reagan and Margaret Thatcher, or Bill Clinton and Tony Blair.

    Trump was right to note that the “special relationship between our two countries has been one of the great forces in history for justice and for peace” and that “a free and independent Britain is a blessing to the world.”

    And May was on point in her turn: “We are at a moment now when we can build an even stronger special relationship” — since she must deal with EU leaders eager to make Brexit as painful as possible, while Trump has to show how his “America first” approach can boost traditional US alliances.

    On that note, it was good to hear May report, after their closed-door meeting: “We are united in recognition of NATO as the bulwark of our collective defense.”

    For the new president’s first face-to-face with a fellow world leader, it couldn’t have gone better.

    Wonderful day!! Thank you Prime Minister for a lovely and important visit to our nation.

    Tomorrow: Talks with Russia and hopefully a meeting schedule for Putin to visit the White House. Yes, Putin needs to come here. Our President Trump is too busy to go there. Perhaps Tuesday would be a nice day for Russia's President to visit the White House. Putin can take Nieto's spot on the schedule.

    President Trump praised an “independent” Great Britain Friday in his first news conference and first meeting with a foreign leader, while British Prime Minister Theresa May used the historic session to deliver a plug for NATO.

    “Together, America and the United Kingdom are a beacon for prosperity and the rule of law,” Mr. Trump said in the East Room of the White House. “That is why the United States respects the sovereignty of the British people and their right of self-determination. An independent Britain is a blessing to the world.”

    British voters decided last year to leave the European Union in a populist move similar to the movement that swept Mr. Trump to victory in November.

    The president said the two leaders must be “responsive to the working people.”

    “Both America and Britain understand that governments must be responsive to everyday working people, that governments must represent their own citizens,” Mr. Trump said. “Great days lie ahead for our two peoples.”

    “Both America and Britain understand that governments must be responsive to everyday working people, that governments must represent their own citizens,” Mr. Trump said. “Great days lie ahead for our two peoples.”

    Ms. May extended an invitation on behalf of Queen Elizabeth II for Mr. Trump to visit the U.K., which he accepted.

    May invited Trump on behalf of Queen Elizabeth to visit the UK and he accepted!! Oh wow, the State Dinner events in London at Buckingham Palace are always extraordinary. Can't wait. Hope Melania goes with him and wears another Ralph Lauren outfit with gloves. The Royals love gloves.
