A report got to Adelove that British Prime Minister Theresa May will be the first foreign leader to visit President Trump’s White House.
May will arrive at the Oval Office Friday his week to discuss post-Brexit trade agreements.
“He’s going to end the week receiving Prime Minister Theresa May from the U.K. here — his first foreign leader to be received here,” Trump aide Kellyanne Conway told NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday. “They’re going to help renegotiate U.S./U.K. trade.
Trump already spoke to Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada and Prime Minister Peña Nieto of Mexico and discussed setting up their first meetings, Press Secretary Sean Spicer said Saturday. Trump was also slated to speak over the phone Sunday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
May is first expected to make a stop in Philadelphia Thursday to address GOP lawmakers at their congressional Republican retreat, Politico reported. President Trump is also expected to attend the GOP conference Thursday, chief of staff Reince Priebus told “Fox News Sunday.”
Trump and May both came to power during a populist and nationalist wave that commenced with Britain voting in June to leave the European Union, known as Brexit. Trump accurately predicted his election would be the ultimate rejection of establishment politics, dubbing it “Brexit plus, plus, plus.”
