President Donald Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May will hold a joint press conference together today as part of the U.S. visit to the United Kingdom. The conference is scheduled to begin at 8:45 a.m. ET.
While Trump and May are likely to talk about joint defense and international economics, the conference might be rife with tension due to the current state of political affairs between the two leaders.
May’s administration has been going through a period of significant internal turmoil after Boris Johnson resigned as foreign secretary in protest of how May has been handling the Brexit process. Yesterday, Trump fanned the flames by giving Rupert Murdoch’s Sun tabloid an exclusive interview where he blasted May’s policies and threatened to take a U.S-U.K trade deal off the table over the Brexit development.
