President Trump

The election of a President for the United States of America is a decision for the citizens of that country, not for us.

If I had been a US citizen, I would not have voted for Donald J Trump. But he won legally under the rules, and it is unlikely that anything the Russians may or may not have done created that situation.

Which makes him the duly elected leader of our most important ally and one of our most important trading partners. We do not have to like him but Britain does have to work with him for as long as he holds that office. We need good relationship with the United States of America, which are in the interests of the people of both Britain and the USA.

For the British government to try to work with the US administration is not "sucking up to" Trump, it is protecting British interests.
