Donald Trump loves England and talks with Theresa May will go smoothly, says New York journalist

A columnist has told talkRADIO the UK's negotiating position with the US is strong ahead of the Prime Minister's meeting with Donald Trump.

Theresa May will be the first foreign leader to meet with the new President when she sits down with Mr Trump in Washington D.C. tomorrow. The pair will reportedly discuss Nato, trade post-Brexit, and working together for security and intelligence reasons. 

Andre Walker, a columnist for the New York Observer based in London, said why he thought Britain's position with the US was strong in an interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer

"I did work for Steve Bannon and Jared Kushner, and you have to understand that people like them are massive anglophiles," he said.

“This administration is hugely supportive of England.

“The one thing people misunderstand about Theresa May is that she isn’t philosophical - she's hugely practical. 

"Trump’s also practical, and that’s why I think the negotiations will work. They'll be easy for people as practical as those two."
