Donald Trump and Theresa May emphasised the strength of the "special relationship" between the US and the UK during a joint news conference in Washington DC on Friday - and appeared to brush aside the many issues they disagree on
She is the first foreign leader to meet with Mr Trump since he entered the White House.
Ms May attempted to reiterate her support for Nato and said sanctions would continue against Russia.
Meanwhile the new President tried to strike a more reasonable tone by saying he would back his new Defense Secretary's decision on torture despite his belief that 'it works'.

Welcome to The Independent's coverage of Theresa May's visit to the White House.
She is due to take part in a joint press coverage with new President Donald Trump.
The British PM and US President are due to speak at around 1pm eastern time, which is 6pm in the UK. Ms May arrived at the White House about an hour ago - the first foreign leader to visit since Trump took the oath of office last week
BBC political editor Laura Kuenssberg has tweeted that the televised news conference has been delayed - perhaps by as much as half an hour. That could be because of problems getting into the White House reported by some British journalists after their date of births were submitted to the secret service using the UK format of day/month/year, rather than month/day/year
