"We're on the same wavelength in, I think, in every respect. We understand each other and the UK and the US are joined at the hip on mutual military defence. We share a really great relationship," Trump said.
May acknowledged the dynamic relationship between the two countries and said that she was looking forward for Trump's visit to the UK.
"We, too, have that really special relationship between the UK and the United States. It's at each other's shoulders. We face the same challenges across the world, and as you say we're willing to go and to defeat those challenges and meet them," May said.
Trump kicked off his first official day here by holding a bilateral meeting with May. He also met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, which was the first meeting after the US President recognised Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
Trump and May clashed in November when the latter condemned his decision to re-tweet anti-Muslim propaganda from a far-right group, Britain First.
She said, in a rare public rebuke, "I am very clear that re-tweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do". (ANI)
