Watch Trump Awkwardly Roll His Eyes When Asked if He Regrets His Comments Bashing Theresa May
— NBC News (@NBCNews) July 13, 2018
There was an extremely cringeworthy moment between Donald Trump and Theresa May on Friday when the president was asked if he had any second thoughts about his recent critical remarks about the British prime minister.
The two leaders briefly appeared before reporters in Chequers, and Trump offered a preview of the various issues the two would discuss throughout his time in the United Kingdom. When Trump stopped talking, a reporter tried to ask him if he regrets his interview with The Sun.
Trump seemed to get visibly annoyed, rolling his eyes and shrugging off the question without an answer. He didn’t even acknowledge May — despite the fact she was sitting right next to him, and looking right at him.
When Trump spoke to the British tabloid yesterday, he slammed May while threatening to revoke a U.S.-U.K. trade deal over her handling of Brexit. Political observers have noted that this seems to undermine May, even as her government is still in turmoil over the resignation of Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson.
