May on Trump Charm Offensive

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May has started a behind-the-scenes charm offensive to build bridges with Donald Trump but has so far failed to pin down a date for the early meeting she wants with the incoming President.

May plans to travel to Washington at some point in the spring, her office said in an emailed statement late on Thursday, though no firm timing has been agreed.

“The prime minister suggested it would be a good idea for key staff from both teams to meet. President-elect Trump agreed this would be useful,” the premier’s office said. “We are pleased to have been able to make that happen and the prime minister looks forward to visiting the new president in the spring.”
