  • The Brits here are very proud that their Prime Minister was the first foreign visitor the new US president received at the White House. But the press was not unanimous in its view of the great things arising from this. Many criticised the British P.M. for refusing to address Trump's advocacy of torture and treatment of refugees. Here's the headline on the Observer, which is probably the most respected of the "Sundays."

    "Theresa May's Washington triumph, if that is what it was, will be short-lived. On issues that matter to Britain, Trump cannot be trusted. The US president's first week has proved that he is like nothing that has gone before. Trump is ignorant prejudiced and vicious in ways that no American leader has been."
