Was Trump's visit to the UK the last straw?


07/16/2018


It seems that times when there were special relations between Great Britain and its former colonies in the New World have irretrievably gone. Of course, Tramp didn’t start it, but still made a significant contribution. He has repeatedly stressed that London does not need to count on some advantages that stemmed earlier from the UK-USA cooperation.

The American president is often reproached for lack of good manners. It is well seen in the relations between Washington and London. The head of the White House behaves with his British counterpart not like a leader of a friendly state, which has been the UK ally for almost two and a half centuries, but like a poor relative. Suffice it to recall how he refused to meet Theresa May tete-a-tete at the recent G7 summit in Canada. He did not behave better even at the party, probably forgetting that the guest was obliged to behave with the host in a polite manner. Trump's attitude to the British leader, who is not very popular at home, outraged even those British MPs who did not like her.

In an interview with the Sun, Trump praised the former head of the Foreign Office, Boris Johnson, and, said that he would make an excellent prime minister without any diplomatic delicacies. The reason for such a love for the British politician lies not only in the certain similarity of their characters and behaviors, but also in that May did not follow his advice on leaving the European Union.

At that, Trump's statements about how Theresa May "kills" the trade agreement with her soft Brexit, and about what an excellent Prime Minister this "talented guy" Johnson would make, were published on Thursday evening. That is, precisely when the British prime minister said at a dinner in honor of a high-ranking American guest that her policy creates "unprecedented opportunities" for concluding an agreement on free trade between the United States and Britain.
