Before leaving for Japan, President Donald Trump has said that he feels bad for the British prime minister, Theresa May, who announced her resignation this Friday, pressured by her ministers and deputies of the Conservative Party.
“I feel bad for her, she has worked very hard, she is very strong and I like her a lot, I will see her in two weeks,” Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving for Japan, where he plans to visit of State.
May finally pulled the towel last Friday by failing all attempts to materialize the “brexit” or exit from the United Kingdom of the European Union (EU), his main role when he took over the Government in July 2016.
At the door of his official residence on 10 Downing Street, the “Tory” policy reported that he had informed Queen Elizabeth II of his intention to resign on June 7 and then begin the process to elect the new leader of the Conservative Party, which is expected to be completed by the end of next July.
Despite announcing his departure, May will be at the helm of the British Executive when Trump, who has criticized her several times before, make his state visit between June 3rd and June 5th.
During his stay in the United Kingdom, Trump will meet with Queen Elizabeth II and hold a bilateral meeting with May.
In the past, the president has lamented the way May is managing the UK’s exit from the EU, a process that Trump has shown himself to be in favor of.
The president left today for Japan, where he will begin this Saturday a trip that will last until next Tuesday, day 28, to coordinate actions in front of the challenge represented by North Korea and strengthen the ties between the two main allies on either side of the Pacific .
Trump will become the first foreign ruler to be received in audience by the new emperor of Japan, Naruhito, who took the throne on May 1, after the abdication of his father, the now Emperor Emeritus Akihito.
