Trump ‘Bashes’ UK’s May after She Calls to Congratulate Him on Midterm Results

Trump ‘Bashes’ UK’s May after She Calls  to Congratulate Him on Midterm Results

LONDON - Donald Trump’s turbulent European visit started with an “acrimonious” conversation with British Prime Minister Theresa May, who called to celebrate the Republican wins in the midterm elections, a Washington Post report claims.
The conversation, which was never officially reported by either side, came on Friday as Trump was travelling to Paris aboard Air Force One, the newspaper claims citing anonymous sources. Trump, who was allegedly in a foul mood, berated May over Britain not doing enough to support his anti-Iranian agenda, questioned her handling of Brexit negotiations and recounted his grievances about what he sees as unfair trade relations between the US and European nations.
The episode was not the only one that marred Trump’s visit to mark the centenary commemoration of the end of World War I. Others were quite public, like Trump’s verbal sparring with the host, French President Emmanuel Macron, and the PR disaster, which was the US President’s decision not to attend a ceremony honoring military sacrifices made during the war. The report implies Trump’s moods were spoiled before the trip by several events at home, including the Democratic Party’s takeover of the House. (Russia Today)
