British PM: Trump Confirmed To Me That He's '100 Percent' Behind NATO

British lawmakers have written to Prime Minister Theresa May, urging her to challenge U.S. President Donald Trump on his views on climate change when the two leaders meet on Friday. "We can either be passive bystanders or we can take the opportunity once more to lead and to lead together", she said.

Prime Minister May called on a reporter from BBC News, who noted Trump's past statements about torture and banning Muslims and punishing women for getting abortions, and asked him, "What do you say to those at home who are anxious about your views, and anxious about you becoming the leader of the free world?"

It also fits with Mr Trump's move to put "America first" and scores well with British voters, whose feeling of being left behind by globalisation helped fuel Britain's vote to leave the European Union previous year.

The United States and United Kingdom have renewed their deep ties after a meeting between US President Donald Trump and UK Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump said.

Asked about the possibility that Mr Trump could bring back a Central Intelligence Agency program for holding terrorism suspects in secret overseas prisons where interrogation techniques often condemned as torture were used, she said said: "We condemn torture and my view on that won't change - whether I'm talking to you or talking to the president".

Mr Putin and Mr Trump are likely to discuss the sanctions when the two leaders speak by telephone on Saturday (local time), a senior White House aide said.

It is believed North Korea deliberately leaked details of its latest missiles to send a "strategic message" to Trump, Yonhap reports.

"It's very early to be talking about that", he told reporters during a news conference. In return, Nieto canceled a scheduled trip to the White House next week - amid Trump's repeated insistence that Mexico will pay for the wall.

"I think his has become a bad relationship, where the president gets what he wants and casually ignores those things that really matter to Britain", the prime minister adds.

Asked whether the PM would rule out accepting U.S. intelligence which had been gleaned from torture, he replied that: "I'm not going to go into debate about security services and how they work". "She has been making nice to him", New York Times columnist Roger Cohen says.

Trump said he had a "friendly call" with the Mexican president Friday, adding that the two would be "working on a fair relationship". That's possible and it's also possible that we won't. "When it irons out, you are going to have your own identity", Trump told May, saying that getting things done through the European Union was far too hard. "The days Britain and America intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over".

"Well, President Obama did say, I guess that they should move to the back of the line".
