Appetite for a US trade deal with Britain appears as high in Washington as it is in London, according to interviews with politicians, with both governments anxious to demonstrate there is more to economic populism than simply a desire for protectionism.
But despite the political convergence indicated by Donald Trump’s election and the Brexit vote, Theresa May will discover the special relationship still has plenty of cracks and contradictions when she visits the White House on Friday.
No amount of goodwill can disguise the blunt message of Trump’s inauguration speech, in which he promised: “From this day forward, it’s going to be only America first.” Instead, a challenging set of issues is likely to remain on the agenda as Britain seeks to outline the shape of any future trade agreement.
