Ignatius: Trump Could Learn From May

The Washington Post‘s David Ignatius, in an appearance on Morning Joe Friday, praised British Prime Minister Theresa May for her speech to the Republican Retreat in Philadelphia.

“If [President Trump] were going to take lessons from a single person this week, I would say it’s Theresa May,” Ignatius said.

Ignatius lauded May’s speech and her precise language: “She managed to express clearly what a conservative change agenda like the one that Trump espouses sounds like when it’s carefully stated. Her line about Russia that ‘we need to engage but beware,’ I thought was perfectly timed, perfectly stated.”

Ignatius expressed hope that Trump and May would develop a bond over Friday’s meeting in Washington, D.C.
