The ups and downs

The Straits Times - - TOPOF THE NEWS -

Hours be­fore US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump was due to touch down in Bri­tain for a meet­ing with Prime Min­is­ter Theresa May, he lobs a ver­bal hand grenade at his host over her Brexit blue­print. “The peo­ple voted to break it up, so I would imag­ine that is what they would do, but maybe they are tak­ing a dif­fer­ent route – I don’t know if that is what they voted for,” he said.

Mrs May hosts Mr Trump and busi­ness lead­ers at a black-tie din­ner at Blen­heim Palace, and tells him that the United States is “not just the clos­est of al­lies, but the dear­est of friends”.
