Trump-May Relationship Solid Despite BREXIT Comments
Thursday, Christopher Ruddy said that President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May had a “love fest … in terms of their 2 countries” at a state dinner in London despite the President’s interview that May’s BREXIT plan would imperil a free-trade deal with the US
“I would describe it as a love fest between the president of the United States and the British prime minister in terms of their 2 countries,” said Mr. Ruddy, who attended the black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, “They may disagree on certain policy issues.
“They did not get into that at this dinner.
“It was a celebration of the very special relationship the United States” has with Britain, Mr. Ruddy said.
In an interview published Friday in The Sun, President Trump said May’s BREXIT plan would “probably kill” the prospects for a US trade deal.
“If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the UK, so it will probably kill the deal,” President Trump said.
The President’s 4-day British visit came after a tense NATO summit in Brussels in which he asked allied nations to increase their defense contributions to 4% of economic output.
At Blenheim President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were joined at the state dinner by 100 Top business leaders and UK politicians.
President Trump met with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle is now heading to Scotland for some golf.
Mr. Ruddy dismissed any notion that President Trump’s BREXIT interview or his NATO comments affected his relationship with Mrs. May.
“Of all the countries in Europe, they’re the most simpatico with us,” he said of Britain. “This President likes the interpersonal connection with people.
“He’s a very people person, right? He seems to do it very well.
“I saw him with the prime minister sitting there,” Mr. Ruddy added. “The chemistry between them was very good.
The Newsmax CEO noted that the Trump-May relationship varied widely with the hostility toward the President on the streets of the US, primarily because of the negative coverage from CNN and other US-based mainstream media outlets.
