Call­ing for a lit­tle help

Townsville Bulletin - - NEWS -

US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has urged Bri­tish Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May to en­sure he gets a warm wel­come from the Bri­tish peo­ple be­fore he comes to the UK.

In a se­cret tape of one of the two world lead­ers’ con­ver­sa­tions that was leaked, the pres­i­dent asked Ms May to “fix it” for him, The Sun re­ports.

Mr Trump made his re­quest clear in a pri­vate con­ver­sa­tion with Ms May to plan his state visit. The visit has now been post­poned un­til next year. Two mil­lion peo­ple signed a pe­ti­tion call­ing for Trump’s pro­posed trip to be axed.

In a tran­script of the call, Mr Trump is re­ported to have said: “I haven’t had great cov­er­age out there lately, Theresa.”

She replied awk­wardly: “Well, you know what the Bri­tish press are like.”
