Just like in The Lord of The Rings, UK’s Prime Minister Theresa May used an epic line ahead of her meeting tomorrow with President Donald Trump, offering Britain’s help for halting the eclipse of the West.
Beautiful words and a beautiful message, as Theresa May basically implored Trump to continue America’s leading role in the world with the UK tagging along, as the US President has an actual obligation to the free world and he must accept the responsibility.
May delivered a speech in Philadelphia on Thursday, criticized China’s increasingly aggressive posture and military prowess, while promising that America and Britain will no longer try to make the world in their own image by invading foreign countries.
UK’s prime minister said that it’s very bad for the world when the United States and the UK step back and as a fellow conservative, she warned Trump about the rising threat of Russian influence on the world stage.
Theresa May delivered an interesting speech to REPs in Philadelphia about the historic relations between their countries which have defined the world, and she was well received by the congressional Republicans who interrupted her a few times by loud applause. One of the most important issues in her view is an advantageous bilateral trade deal between the US and UK.
After all, it’s the economy stupid, as it has always been, to quote from the classics.
Some speculate that the Donald Trump-Theresa May duo is the 2017 version of the eighties power couple Reagan-Thatcher, the Iron Lady of Great Britain.
“An emboldened, confident America is good for the world, a nation that is strong and prosperous at home is one that can lead abroad. We — our two countries together — have a joint responsibility to lead. Because when others step up as we step back, it is bad for America, for Britain and the world.”
“Other countries may grow stronger. Big, populous countries may grow richer. And as they do so, they may start to embrace more fully our values of democracy and liberty.
“But even if they do not, our interests will remain. Our values will endure. And the need to defend them and project them will be as important as ever. This cannot mean a return to the failed policies of the past, The days of Britain and America intervening in sovereign countries in an attempt to remake the world in our own image are over.”
said Theresa May during her visit as the first foreign leader to meet President Donald Trump. Before meeting personally with The Donald on Friday, May had the rare privilege to address congressional REPS in Philly and what a great job she did. Yet UKIP’s Nigel Farage seems to be skeptical:
I can hardly believe Mrs May’s words about our place in the world and with America. I’ve wanted all of these things for years.
