Trump expects US-UK trade deal to be agreed 'very, very quickly'

It would be 'madness' not to seek close post-Brexit link with EU – Hammond

Prime Minister Theresa May arrives for a family photo with other world leaders during the G20 summit in Hamburg.

"To promote the values of moderation and fight extremist ideology, the Kingdom has launched the Global Center for the Fight against Extremist Thought with the participation of US President Donald Trump and the leaders of countries participating in the Arab-American-Islamic Summit, recently held, in Riyadh, SPA added".

In talks with Mr Trump, and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, Mrs May will make her pitch for trade deals with both countries, as well as reiterating Britain's commitment to tackling growing aggression from North Korea.

Later, in response to an entreaty by Indonesian President Joko Widodo, Trump said he'd also like to visit that country.

When asked if he knew the date of his trip, President Trump replied: "We'll work that out".

Both sides played down expectations, portraying the meeting mostly as a chance for the leaders to take the measure of each other. The two-day meeting's official agenda will be dominated by discussions about terror financing, global trade and climate.

The pair could also face some tension over free trade after May used a working lunch on the issue to warn that many citizens weren't benefiting from growth across the world but taking a very different tone to the United States president.

He met Theresa May for nearly an hour on the fringes of the G20 summit in Hamburg this morning.

Back home, May has come under fire for seeking to curry favour with Trump and came in for heavy criticism in January for inviting him for a state visit just seven days after he took office. Despite her claims to want to build a new "close relationship" with the EU, a poll this week of European countries found that May is now as unpopular among the public of former close allies such as Germany as President Putin.

"We'll be going to London".

President Donald Trump's sometimes unconventional way of shaking hands has often made the news, especially after he and Japan's prime minister smiled their way through a roughly 18-second handshake in February.

There were more chances to perhaps nudge ahead, forcing Vekic to save four break points in the process before a tie-break. Kei Nishikori also advanced after defeating Ukrainian qualifier Sergiy Stakhovsky 6-4, 6-7 (7/9), 6-1, 7-6 (8/6).

Trump was reportedly reluctant to come to London while huge protests were planned against the visit.

Trump is also looking for high-value bilateral deals as he threatens to pull the U.S. out of multilateral trade agreements, including NAFTA.

"And the Americans and others will not negotiate with us until they know what our relationship with the European Union is going to be, because the access we have in Europe is hugely important for the advantages that they can get from their relations with us".

"I will be making that message", she told ITV.

"I wouldn't actually believe anything actually that the Kremlin is putting out", he said.
