Video of the Day: President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump in the U.K.

Thanks to the eminent hospitality of Queen Elizabeth II, the first day of President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump’s official State Visit to the United Kingdom embodied the full elegance of a royal celebration.

Yesterday’s full schedule concluded where it began: historic Buckingham Palace, where President Trump and the Queen raised their glasses to the lasting friendship between our two nations.

“Your Majesty, Melania and I are profoundly honored to be your guests for this historic State Visit,” the President said. “On behalf of all Americans, I offer a toast to the eternal friendship of our people, the vitality of our nations, and to the long-cherished and truly remarkable reign of her Majesty, the Queen.”

Why the U.S.–U.K. alliance is stronger than ever

Early this morning by U.S. time, President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May marked day two of the President's State Visit to the U.K. with a joint press conference at 10 Downing Street in London.

🎬 President Trump: “Melania and I are honored to return to London” 

As President Trump stated it, the longstanding American-British alliance is the greatest the world has ever known. “Our relationship is grounded in common history, values, customs, culture, language and laws,” he said today. “Our people believe in freedom and independence as a sacred birthright and cherished inheritance worth defending at any cost.”

On the world stage, the United Kingdom remains a key partner in advancing shared global interests. Just one example of that alliance in action: the joint campaign to defeat ISIS. With the U.K.’s help, ISIS’ territorial caliphate in Syria and Iraq has now been completely obliterated.

This week also marks the 75th anniversary of D-Day. On June 6, 1944, American and British soldiers fought side-by-side to liberate Europe from brutal Nazi occupation and make the world safe for freedom and democracy. It was this shared sacrifice that sealed profound, enduring bonds between America and Britain.

“Seventy-five years ago this Thursday, courageous Americans and British patriots set out from this Island toward history’s most important battle,” President Trump said. “They stormed forward out of ships and airplanes, risking everything to defend our people and to ensure that the United States and Britain would forever remain sovereign and forever remain free.”

The American-British alliance is thriving under President Trump.

President Trump, Queen Elizabeth Toast to Historic US-UK Relationship at State Banquet

“President Trump attended a state banquet on Monday hosted by Queen Elizabeth II, where the two leaders hailed the historic importance of their countries' relationship,” Brett Samuels reports in The Hill.

In a toast to the Queen, the President described Her Majesty as a “constant symbol” of our shared values and spoke about the upcoming 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion this Thursday. Queen Elizabeth said that “tonight, we celebrate an alliance that has helped to ensure the safety and prosperity of both our peoples for decades, and which I believe will endure for many years to come.”

Yesterday, the President and First Lady were presented special gifts by Queen Elizabeth II during their visit to Buckingham Palace, Natalie Musumeci reports for the New York Post. President Trump received “an abridged first edition of Winston Churchill’s book on World War II.” The First Lady was given “a ‘specially commissioned silver box’ with a ‘handcrafted enamel lid’ that was designed to match the ceiling of Buckingham Palace’s music room.”
“President Trump has given the Duke of Edinburgh a personalised Air Force One jacket as a special gift in honour of the UK state visit. The famous jackets are traditionally worn by US presidents when travelling by air,” Olivia Petter writes in The Independent. “It’s an apt gift for Prince Philip, who became a pilot for the Royal Air Force in 1952.”
“The Border Patrol is seeing an increase in migrants from African countries who are blending in with the large numbers crossing the southern border illegally through Central America,” Fred Lucas reports in The Daily Signal. Agents at the Del Rio, Texas sector “apprehended 116 individuals last week from African countries as they crossed the border from Mexico.”
Yesterday, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) “announced that full funding has been secured to complete the project to elevate the Tamiami Trail. The U.S. Department of Transportation has matched the state of Florida’s $40 million for the Tamiami Trail by awarding an additional $60 million,” the Keys Weekly reports. “I thank President Trump and his administration, including Secretary Elaine Chao, for yet again proving their dedication to the people of Florida as we work to restore our water quality and protect our environment,” Gov. DeSantis said.


Office of the Press Secretary

No. 10 Downing Street
London, United Kingdom

2:07 P.M. BST

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  This week, we commemorate the extraordinary courage and sacrifice of those who gave their lives for our liberty on D-Day, 75 years ago.  As leaders prepare to gather here from across the world, it is fitting that we begin with a celebration of the special relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States, enduring partners who stood side-by-side on that historic day and every day since.

     For generations, at the heart of the transatlantic alliance has been our shared democratic values, our common interests, and our commitment to justice.  It is that unity of purpose that will preserve the deep-rooted ties between our people and underpin our nation’s security and prosperity for the next 75 years and beyond.

     So, I am very pleased to welcome the President of the United States of America on this State Visit to the United Kingdom.

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Thank you very much, Theresa.

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  For the past two and half years, the President and I have had the duty and privilege of being the latest guardians of this precious and profound friendship between our countries.  As with our predecessors, when we have faced threats to the security of our citizens and our allies, we have stood together and acted together.

     When Russia used a deadly nerve agent on the streets of our country, alongside the UK’s expulsions, the President expelled 60 Russian intelligence officers -- the largest contribution towards an unprecedented global response.  And, in Syria, when innocent men, women, and children were victims of a barbaric chemical weapons attack, Britain and America, along with France, carried out targeted strikes against the regime.

     Since we spoke about NATO during my first visit to the White House, we have maintained our support for this crucial alliance.  Thanks in part to your clear message on burden sharing, Donald, we have seen members pledge another $100 billion, increasing their contributions to our shared security.

     And I'm pleased to announce that NATO will soon be able to call on the UK's Queen Elizabeth-class aircraft carriers and F-35 fighter jets to help tackle threats around the world.

     Today, we've discussed again the new and evolving challenges to our security, our values, and our way of life.  We share the same view about their origin and our objectives in meeting them.

     But like prime ministers and presidents before us, and no doubt those that will come after, we can also differ sometimes on how to confront the challenges we face.

     I've always talked openly with you, Donald, when we have taken a different approach and you've done the same with me.  I've always believed that cooperation and compromise are the basis of strong alliances, and nowhere is this more true than in the special relationship.

     Today, we've discussed again the importance of our two nations working together to address Iran's destabilizing activity in the region and to ensure Tehran cannot acquire a nuclear weapon.
     Although we differ on the means of achieving that -- as I've said before, the UK continues to stand by the nuclear deal -- it is clear that we both want to reach the same goal.  It is important that Iran meets its obligations and we do everything to avoid escalation, which is in no one's interest.

     Recognizing our nations are safer and more prosperous when we work together on the biggest challenges of our time, I also set out the UK's approach to tackling climate change and our continued support for the Paris Agreement.

     And we also spoke about China, recognizing its economic significance and that we cannot ignore action that threatens our shared interests or values.

     As we've deepened our cooperation on security, including our joint military operations and our unparalleled intelligence sharing, so our economies, too, are ever more tightly bound together.

     Every morning, one million Americans get up and go to work for British companies in America, and one million Britons do the same for American companies here.
     Our trading relationship is worth over £190 billion a year and we're the largest investors in each other's economies, with mutual investments valued at as much as $1 trillion.

     Mr. President, you and I agreed the first time we met that we should aim for an ambitious free trade agreement when the UK leaves the EU.  And from our positive discussions today, I know that we both remain committed to this.

     I'm also sure that our economic relationship will only grow broader and deeper, building on the conversations we had and the ideas we heard from UK and U.S. businesses when we met them earlier today.

     Tomorrow, we will sit down in Portsmouth with our fellow leaders to reaffirm the enduring importance of the Western alliance and the shared values that underpin it.

     And as we look to the future, in the years and in the generations ahead, we will continue to work together to preserve the alliance that is the bedrock of our shared prosperity and security, just as it was on the beaches of Normandy, 75 years ago.

     Mr. President.

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Well, thank you, Prime Minister May.  Melania and I are honored to return to London as our nations commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day in World War Two.  We want to thank Her Majesty the Queen, who I had a lovely dinner with last night -- a fantastic person, fantastic woman -- for so graciously inviting us to this State Visit.  It was very, very special.

     Our thanks as well to Prime Minister and Mr. May for the warm welcome they've given the First Lady and me, as we remember the heroes who laid down their lives to rescue civilization itself.

     On June 6th, 1944, tens of thousands of young warriors left these shores by the sea and air to begin the invasion of Normandy and the liberation of Europe and the brutal Nazi occupation.  It was a liberation like few people have seen before.  Among them were more than 130,000 American and British brothers-in-arms.  Through their valor and sacrifice, they secured our homelands and saved freedom for the world.

     Tomorrow, Prime Minister May and I will attend a commemoration ceremony in Portsmouth -- one of the key embarkation points for the invasion.  More than one and a half million American service members were stationed right here in England in advance of the landings that summer.  The bonds of friendship forged here and sealed in blood on those hallowed beaches will endure forever.

     Our special relationship is grounded in common history, values, customs, culture, language, and laws.  Our people believe in freedom and independence as a sacred birthright and cherished inheritance worth defending at any cost.

     As the Prime Minister and I discussed in our meetings today and yesterday, the United States and the United Kingdom share many goals and priorities around the world.

     I want to thank the people of the United Kingdom for their service and partnership in our campaign to defeat ISIS.  As we announced a few months ago, ISIS’s territorial caliphate in Syria and Iraq has been completely obliterated -- defeated.

     The United Kingdom is also a key partner in NATO.  The Prime Minister and I agree that our NATO Allies must increase their defense spending.  We've both been working very hard toward that end.  And we are very current, and some of them are not.  We can't allow that to happen.  But I appreciate everything you've done in that regard.

     We expect a growing number of nations to meet the minimum 2 percent of GDP requirement.  To address today’s challenges, all members of the Alliance must fulfill their obligations.  They have no choice.  They must fulfill their obligation.

     Among the pressing threats facing our nations is the development and spread of nuclear weapons.  Perhaps that's our greatest threat.  The United States and the United Kingdom are determined to ensure that Iran never develops nuclear weapons, and stops supporting and engaging in terrorism.  And I believe that will happen.

     In protecting our nations, we also know that the border security is national security.

     Today, the Prime Minister and I discussed our thriving economic relationship -- both countries are doing very well -- and participated in a roundtable with industry and business leaders -- I can say, probably, the biggest business leaders anywhere in the world.  Our nations have more than $1 trillion invested in each other’s economics.

     The United Kingdom is America’s largest foreign investor and our largest European export market.  That's a lot of importance.  As the UK makes preparations to exit the European Union, the United States is committed to a phenomenal trade deal between the U.S. and the UK.  There is tremendous potential in that trade deal -- I say, probably, two and even three times of what we're doing right now.  Tremendous potential.

     Seventy-five years ago this Thursday, courageous Americans and British patriots set out from this island toward history’s most important battle.

     They stormed forward out of ships and airplanes, risking everything to defend our people and to ensure that the United States and Britain would forever remain sovereign and forever remain free.

     Following this press conference, Prime Minister May, Mr. May, the First Lady, my family, and I will visit the legendary Churchill War Rooms beneath the streets of London.  I look forward to that.

     In his famous speech on this day in June 1940, Prime Minister Churchill urged his countrymen to “defend our island, whatever the cost may be.”

     As we mark this solemn anniversary of D-Day, we remember that the defense of our nations does not begin on the battlefield but within the heart of every patriot.

     Today, let us renew our pledge, engraved at the American Cemetery in Normandy and inscribed by President Dwight Eisenhower in St. Paul’s Cathedral right here in London, that “the cause for which they died shall live.”

     Prime Minister May, it's been a true honor.  I have greatly enjoyed working with you.  You are a tremendous professional and a person that loves your country dearly.  Thank you very much.  Really an honor.

     Thank you for the invitation to memorialize our fallen heroes and for your partnership in protecting and advancing the extraordinary alliance between the American and the British people.  It’s the greatest alliance the world has ever known.

     Thank you, Prime Minister.  Thank you.

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  Thank you.

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Thank you very much.

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  Thank you very much, Donald.  (Applause.)

     Thank you.  Now we’re going to take two questions from the UK media and two questions from the American media.  I’ll start with Beth Rigby.

     Q    Thank you.  Thank you, Prime Minister, President Trump.  Beth Rigby from Sky News.  For you, President Trump, as you hold talks with the current Prime Minister, the leader of Her Majesty’s Opposition has been addressing a protest rally against your visit in Trafalgar Square.  He says he’s disappointed you attacked the London mayor, and he criticized your record on refugees.  What do you have to say to him?  And is this man someone you could do a trade deal with?

     And to you, Prime Minister, do you think that Sadiq Khan is a “stone cold loser”?  Thank you.

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  You’re talking about the Mayor of London.  Is that who you said?  Yes?  Well, I think he’s been a -- a not very good mayor, from what I understand.  He’s done a poor job.  Crime is up.  A lot of problems.  And I don’t think he should be criticizing a representative of the United States that can do so much good for the United Kingdom.
We talked about it before: He should be positive, not negative.  He’s a negative force, not a positive force.  And if you look at what he said, he hurts the people of this great country.

     And I think he should actually focus on his job.  It’d be a lot better if he did that.  He could straighten out some of the problems that he has and probably some of the problems that he’s caused.

     Thank you.


     Q    (Inaudible.)  (Off-mic.)

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Jeremy -- yes.  Yes, he wanted to meet with me and I told him no.

     Q    (Inaudible.)  (Off-mic.)


     Q    (Inaudible.)  (Off-mic.)

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Well, I don’t know Jeremy Corbyn.  Never met him.  Never spoke to him.  He wanted to meet today or tomorrow, and I decided that I would not do that.  I think that he is -- from where I come from -- somewhat of a negative force.  I think that the people should look to do things correctly as opposed to criticize.  I really don’t like critics as much as I like and respect people that get things done.  So I’ve decided not to meet.

     As far as the protests, I have to tell you, because I commented on it yesterday: We left the Prime Minister, the Queen, the Royal Family -- there were thousands of people on the streets cheering.  And even coming over today, there were thousands of people cheering.  And then I heard that there were protests.  I said, “Where are the protests?  I don’t see any protests.”

     I did see a small protest today when I came -- very small.  So a lot of it is fake news, I hate to say.  But you saw the people waving the American flag, waving your flag; it was tremendous spirit and love.  There was great love.  It was an alliance.  And I didn’t see the protestors until just a little while ago, and it was a very, very small group of people, put in for political reasons.  So it was fake news.  Thank you.

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  And I would say to both the Mayor of London and to Jeremy Corbyn: The discussions that we have had today are about the future of this most important relationship between the U.S. and the UK.

     As the President described it: the greatest alliance the world has seen.  It is this deep, special relationship and partnership between the United States and the United Kingdom that ensures our safety and security, and the safety and security of others around the world, too.  And it is this relationship that helps to ensure there are jobs that employ people here in the UK and in the United States that underpins our prosperity and our future.  That is a relationship we should cherish.  It is a relationship we should build on.  It is a relationship we should be proud of.  

     Mr. President, would you like to --

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  It’s very big, and this really is a very big and important alliance.  And I think people should act positively toward it because it means so much for both countries.  It means so much and it’s been so good.

     Steve Holland, yes.  Go ahead, Steve.

     Q    Thank you, Mr. President.  Thank you.  Is that on?  There.  What is your current view on Brexit, sir?  Should Britain leave the European Union if there is no agreement by October 31st?

     And for the Prime Minister: What would be the ramifications for the UK if there is not a deal?

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Well, I don’t like to take positions in things that I’m not, you know, really -- I understand the issue very well.  I really predicted what was going to happen.  Some of you remember that prediction.  It was a strong prediction, made at a certain location, on a development we were opening the day before it happened.  And I thought it was going to happen because of immigration more than anything else, but probably it happens for a lot of reasons.

     But I would say, yeah, I would think that it will happen and it probably should happen.  This is a great, great country and it wants its own identity.  It wants to have its own borders.  It wants to run its own affairs.  This is a very, very special place.  And I think it deserves a special place.  And I thought maybe for that reason -- and for others -- but that reason, it was going to happen.

     Yeah, I think it will happen, and I believe the Prime Minister has brought it to a very good point where something will take place in the not-too-distant future.  I think she’s done a very good job.

     I believe it would be good for the country.  Yes.

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  And from my point of view, I believe it is important for us to deliver Brexit.  We gave that choice to the British people.  Parliament overwhelmingly gave the choice to the British people.  We should now deliver on that choice.  I continue to believe that, actually, it’s in the best interests of the UK to leave the European Union in an orderly way with a deal.  I think we have a good deal.  Sadly, the Labour Party and other MPs have, so far, stopped us from delivering Brexit and that deal.

     But we will -- but, obviously, this is an issue that is going to continue here in the UK.  I think the important thing is we deliver Brexit.  And once we’re out of the European Union, we will be able to do what we’ve been talking about today and develop not just that free trade agreement, but a broader economic partnership into the future.

     Q    If I could just follow up on a related matter: Mr. President, are you prepared to impose limits on intelligence sharing with Britain if they do not put in place some restrictions on Huawei?

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  No, because we’re going to have absolutely an agreement on Huawei and everything else.  We have an incredible intelligence relationship and we will be able to work out any differences.  I think we’re not going to have it.  We did discuss it.  I see absolutely no limitations.  We’ve never had limitations.  This is a truly great ally and partner, and we’ll have no problem with that.  Okay?

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  Francis.

     Q    Mr. President, Francis Elliott from the Times.  Do you agree with your ambassador that the entire economy needs to be on the table in a future trade talk -- trade deal, including the NHS?

     And, Prime Minister, are you tempted to take the Prime Minister up -- take the President up on his word and stick around for a bit until the trade deal is done?

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  I think we’re going to have a great trade deal, yes.  I think we’re going to have a great and very comprehensive trade deal --

     Q    With the NHS?  With the NHS?  Should the NHS be on the table, sir?

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  I can’t hear him.  What?

     Q    The Health Service.  Should the Health Service?

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  It’s a question about the National Health Service.  He says, “Should the National Health Service be on the table?”

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Look, I think everything with a trade deal is on the table.  When you -- when you’re dealing in trade, everything is on the table -- so, NHS or anything else.  There are a lot -- a lot more than that.  But everything will be on the table, absolutely.  Okay.

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  But the point about making trade deals is, of course, that both sides negotiate and come to an agreement about what should or should not be in that trade deal for the future.

     And as regards to your second question, Francis: Nice try, but no.  (Laughter.)  Look, I’m a woman of my word.

     Mr. President, would you like to --

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  John, please.

     Q    Mr. President, thank you.  Mr. President, domestically, in recent days, Mexico has stepped up apprehensions and deportations of Central American migrants.

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  That’s good.

     Q    This could possibly be in response to your threat of tariffs.  Has Mexico --

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Not “possibly be.”

     Q    Has Mexico done enough to avoid tariffs, which will be imposed in some six days from now?  And --

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  No, we haven’t started yet.

     Q    But the threat is out there?

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Yeah, the threat is out there, but we haven’t really started yet.  No, this will take effect next week -- the 5 percent.

     Q    And what do you think of Republicans who say that they make take action to block you imposing those tariffs?

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Oh, I don’t think they will do that.  I think if they do, it’s foolish.  There’s nothing more important than borders.  I’ve had tremendous Republican support.  I have a 90 percent -- 94 percent approval rating, as of this morning, in the Republican Party.  That’s an all-time record.  Can you believe that?  Isn’t that something?  I love records.  But we have a 94 percent approval rating in the Republican Party.

     I want to see security at our border.  I’m going to see great trade.  I’m going to see a lot of things happening.  And that is happening.

     And as you know, Mexico called.  They want to meet.  They’re going to meet on Wednesday.  Secretary Pompeo is going to be at the meeting, along with a few others that are very good at this.  And we are going to see if we can do something.

     But I think it's more likely that the tariffs go on.  And we'll probably be talking during the time that the tariffs are on and they're going to be paid.  And if they don't step up and give us security for our nation -- look, millions of people are flowing through Mexico.  That's unacceptable.  Millions and millions of people are coming right through Mexico.  It's a 2,000-mile journey.  And they're coming up to our border.

     And our Border Patrol, which is incredible -- they're apprehending them, but our laws are bad because the Democrats don't want to pass laws that could be passed in 15 minutes, that could be passed quickly.  In one day, it could change.

     But even beyond the laws, Mexico shouldn't allow millions of people to try and enter our country.  And they could stop it very quickly, and I think they will.  And if they won't, we're going to put tariffs on.  And every month, those tariffs go from 5 percent, to 10 percent, to 15 percent, to 20, and then to 25 percent.  And what will happen then is all of those companies that have left our country and gone to Mexico are going to be coming back to us.  And that's okay.  That's okay.

     But I think Mexico will step up and do what they should have been done.  And I don't want to hear that Mexico is run by the cartels and the drug lords and the coyotes.  I don't want to hear about that.  A lot of people are saying that.  Mexico has something to prove.  But I don't want to hear that they're run by the cartels.  You understand.  You report on it all the time.  A lot of people do.  That would be a terrible thing.

     Mexico should step up and stop this onslaught, this invasion into our country, John.

     Q    Prime Minister May, you tried three times to get a deal on Brexit.  At this point, do you believe that a deal on Brexit is possible, or is this a Gordian knot?  President Trump says that you didn't take his advice in terms of negotiation.  Should you have?  Would that have made a difference?

     And, President Trump, if I could ask a follow-up: You had a conversation with Boris Johnson.  Could we ask what you spoke about?  And will you meet with Michael Gove today?

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  Well, first of all, on the first issue, as I said in answer to an earlier question, I still believe -- I personally believe that it is in the best interest of the UK to leave the European Union with a deal.  I believe there is a good deal on the table.  Obviously, it will be for whoever succeeds me as Prime Minister to take this issue forward.

     What is paramount, I believe, is delivering on Brexit for the British people.  And I seem to remember the President suggested that I sued the European Union, which we didn't do.  We went into negotiations and we came out with a good deal.

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Yeah.  That's not such a -- I would have sued, but that's okay.  (Laughter.)  I would have sued and settled, maybe.  But you never know.  She's probably a better negotiator than I am (inaudible).

     But you know what?  She has got it, in a sense, John.  That deal is teed up.  I think that deal is really teed up.  I think they have to do something.  And perhaps you won't be given the credit that you deserve if they do something, but I think you deserve a lot of credit.  I really do.  I think you deserve a lot of credit.  Okay?

     Yes, John?
     Q    And Boris Johnson and Michael Gove?

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  So, I know Boris.  I like him.  I've liked him for a long time.  He's -- I think he'd do a very good job.  I know Jeremy.  I think he'd do a very good job.  I don't know Michael.  But would he do a good job -- Jeremy?  Tell me.  (Laughter.)



     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Good.  Thank you very much, everybody.  Thank you.  Thank you very much.  (Applause.)

     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  Well, good morning everyone and thank you very much for joining us today.  And a very special thanks to His Royal Highness, the Duke of York, for hosting us here today at St. James's Palace.  And it's a great pleasure to welcome leaders of so many world-class companies at the table today, and, of course, our honored guest, President Trump, who knows a thing or two about business himself, as well.

     But I think the range of companies that we see around this table shows us the huge scope there is over the transatlantic business links that we have between the United States and the United Kingdom.

     And the numbers, I think, just show that; they speak for themselves.  Our trade between our nations last year worth almost $240 billion.  We see that British companies employ a million -- I think we've used this figure before -- British companies employ a million citizens in the U.S.  And every morning, a million people here in the UK go to work for American companies here in the UK.

     And it's a great partnership, but I think it's a partnership that we can take even further.  Of course, that's with a good bilateral trade agreement --


     PRIME MINISTER MAY:  -- but also, I think, building a wider economic partnership for the future as well, and working together and continuing to work together in underpinning, shaping, and influencing the global economy, the rules on which that's based, and its institution because we believe in keeping markets free, fair, and open, and keeping our industries and our businesses competitive.

And I think there are huge opportunities for us to seize together in the future, and challenges for us to work together to tackle on, as well.  And the opportunity today is that we're going to be able to look at how we do both of those.
     Now, in a few moments, I was -- I will ask Sir Roger Carr to start the discussion.  But, first of all, I'd like to ask you, Mr. President, if you would like to open with your thoughts.

     PRESIDENT TRUMP:  Thank you very much, Prime Minister.  I appreciate it.  I very much appreciate the relationship we've had.  It's been outstanding.  And I guess some people know that; some people don't.  But you and I know it.  But it's been, really, a very good relationship and I appreciate it very much.

     We are your largest partner.  You're our largest partner.  A lot of people don't know that.  I was surprised.  I made that statement yesterday, and a lot of people said, "Gee, I didn't know that."  But that's the way it is.  And there's an opportunity -- I think a great opportunity -- to greatly enlarge that, especially now, in light of what's happening, to tremendously enlarge it and make it a much bigger trading relationship.

     So we're going to be working on that today and even a little bit tomorrow and probably into the next couple of weeks.  But I think we'll have a very, very substantial trade deal.  It’ll be a very fair deal.  And I think that this is something that your folks want to do, my folks want to do, and we want to do.  And we're going to get it done.

     I'd just like to congratulate you on having done a fantastic job on behalf of the people of the United States, and it's an honor to have worked with you.  And I don't know exactly what your timing is, but stick around.  Let's do this deal, okay?  (Laughter.)  Thank you very much.  Thank you very much.
