Donald Trump Calls Theresa May

Since his victory Trump has spoken with the leaders of India, Japan, Australia, Egypt, South Korea, Ireland, Mexico, Israel and Turkey.

The Irish Prime Minister Enda Kenny revealed he had received the first White House invitation, after a 10-minute phone call on Wednesday. 

Kenny said he “had a very good conversation with the President elect”.

“He understands Ireland very well, he was complimentary about the decisions made about the economy here. He is looking forward to doing business with Ireland”, he said.

Trump, who recently bought a £12.4m golf course in Ireland, invited Kenny to spend St Patrick’s day at the White House.

Trump has also arranged to meet the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe next week, before an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit.

Lib Dem leader Tim Farron tweeted: “Trump yet to call May, but has called Egypt Ireland Mexico Israel Turkey India Japan Australia…almost like we are ‘back of the queue’.”
