British Prime Minister Theresa May told CBS News in a pre-taped interview that she trusts President Donald Trump, and has a productive relationship with him.
When asked in the interview, which will air on Monday, if she trusted Trump, May said, “Well, yes. I mean, we work together.”
She added that they “have a special relationship,” like the one the United States and the United Kingdom “have built up over a number of years.”
When asked if Trump listens to her when she talks, May said, “Yes,” and added that they “have very good discussions. And these are, I mean, the point of the special relationship between the United Kingdom and the United States in a sense is that we can have those frank and open discussions," she said.
"And when we disagree, we will – we can say to each other we disagree and why we disagree. But at the same time, we cooperate on so much else, which is of crucial importance to us."
May also praised Trump for expelling Russian intelligence officers after the attack on former Russian spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter in Salisbury, but avoided criticizing him for not raising the issue with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their one-on-one meeting in Helsinki.
