The Prime Minister’s office released a statement last night saying that she would meet Donald Trump in the spring.
But there was one glaring omission: a date.
Political Scrapbook doesn’t want to be a party-pooper but this is a bit vague:
The prime minister suggested it would be a good idea for key staff from both teams to meet. President-elect Trump agreed this would be useful.
We are pleased to have been able to make that happen and the prime minister looks forward to visiting the new president in the spring.
In other words, sometime in Spring, Theresa May may meet Donald Trump.
No actual meeting has been scheduled.
Bloomberg reports that May sent her two most senior aides, Nick Timothy and Fiona Hill, on a “secret trip” to the U.S. in mid-December to meet members of Trump’s team.
But they still can’t get the incoming President to put aside a date for his country’s strongest ally?
That’s a bit awkward isn’t it?
