Trump, who recently removed the United States from the Paris agreement on climate change, has also abandoned multilateral trade talks with the Pacific region and is threatening to leave the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

Speaking at a joint press conference in the World Economic Forum in Davos on Thursday, the US President said they had a "great relationship" and wanted to dispel claims that there was tension between them.

"It was clear to me and others at the time that an offer of a state visit to President Trump was over the top and unnecessary", she says.

"We love your country", Trump said in comments carried by The Hill.

So the Power Africa project survives, but only just if the White House lack of enthusiasm is anything to go by. "We have the same ideas, the same ideals", Trump told the United Kingdom prime minister Thursday, turning to her directly.

"I think the feeling is mutual from the standpoint of liking each other a lot". On Thursday, he said that that the U.S. has a peace proposal, which he characterized as "a great proposal for the Palestinians" and a "very good proposal for Israel".

"We look forward to that and we are starting that process pretty much as we speak". He told her "there's nothing that would happen to you [where] we wouldn't be there to fight for you".

Earlier this month, Trump cancelled a trip to London to open a new U.S. embassy in another sign of strained relations with one of the closest United States allies.

She added: "We stand shoulder to shoulder because we face the same challenges around the world". Earlier this month, Trump said on Twitter that he "canceled" a visit to London to formally open the new US embassy because the old site had been sold for "peanuts" and he didn't like the choice of the new location. Alongside that, we are working for a good trade relationship in the future which will be to both of our benefits.
