Trump and May paper over differences
Mrs Theresa May and Mr Donald Trump entered a news conference yesterday holding hands and went out of their way to praise each other’s leadership, a day after the United States President assailed the British Prime Minister’s Brexit strategy and said one of her political opponents would make a good prime minister.
They said they would complete a trade deal as soon as Britain leaves the European Union, after Mr Trump said an accord might not be possible because of her decision to maintain ties with the EU.
Singaporeans in Paris met Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the Hotel national des Invalides yesterday. PM Lee is on a three-day official visit to France, and will attend the Bastille Day parade today as a guest-ofhonour at the invitation of French President Emmanuel Macron.
