Trump will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday

President Trump is hosting his first world leader on Friday, holding talks and a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. May and Trump separately addressed congressional Republicans on Thursday, with May touting the benefits of a strong United Nations, NATO alliance, and European Union, all organizations Trump has disparaged. Britain is looking to forge a bilateral trade deal with the U.S. as it exits the EU, so trade is expected to be a major focus of the meeting. World leaders are unfamiliar with Trump and most of his top advisers, so May's visit is also a sort of global testing the waters. In announcing Friday's schedule Thursday evening, the White House misspelled May's first name, leaving out the "h." The schedule has since been corrected.
