Trump toasts to British alliance and “a great, great” Queen Elizabeth

Donald Trump and Queen Elizabeth hailed the bonds between the United States and the United Kingdom after the U.S. president was feted with a day of pomp designed to bolster an alliance strained by discord over Brexit and China.

The three-day trip was cast as a chance to celebrate Britain’s “special relationship” with the United States, boost trade links in a post-Brexit world and reaffirm security cooperation. While the proudly unpredictable 45th U.S. president lavished praise on the 93-year-old queen, his views on Britain’s exit from the European Union, on the possible successor to Theresa May as British prime minister and a row over China’s Huawei have cast a pall over the visit.
