Excerpt from Theresa May's diary, published 2020
Here is what she says about Friday January 27, 2017
To the White House today for my first official visit to meet President Trump. Gove had already gushed to me about his animal magnetism so I wore a new girdle, just in case.
Before I was ushered in to see the Donald, his aide asked how to pronounce my name, was it with a hard or soft g? Just a bit of confusion, they thought I was Angela Merkel.
First impressions of Trump were that he was wearing more make up than I was, and he had better hair.
After a cup of hot tea and some locker room bantz, I asked his advice about building a wall to keep northerners out of London, and to keep Russians in.
All in all, it was a good meeting that went rather well. Our special relationship remains intact, or at least I think it does. It was rather hard to tell what he was thinking as he was bouncing Melania up and down on his knee as we spoke.
But he was very polite and as we parted company he said to me: "Shut the door behind you when you leave, Angela."
Oh, if only I wasn't a married woman!
