Britain’s so-called special relationship with the United States was one of the most enduring alliances of the 20th century, though Brexit and Trump's presidency have raised questions about its future.

July 2018 - Trump delivered a withering verdict on Britain's Brexit strategy in an interview published just hours before holding talks with May in London, saying her strategy would "kill" any chance of a trade deal with the U.S. and said she had not listened to his advice on how to negotiate with the EU.

Hours later he changed tack, praising May and saying there could be a great deal, while tens of thousands of people joined protests against his visit denouncing his policies as divisive.

July 2019 - Britain's ambassador to the United States, Kim Darroch, described Trump as "radiating insecurity" and his administration as diplomatically "clumsy and inept" in private correspondence leaked to a British newspaper.

In his rebuke, Trump said the United States would no longer deal with the ambassador. He later branded May "foolish" for not following his advice on Brexit negotiations with the European Union and described Darroch as "wacky," "a very stupid guy" and a "pompous fool."

Darroch resigned a day later, saying the current situation made it impossible for him to carry out his role.
