Though he has previously faulted her for not taking his advice on the Brexit ordeal, President Donald Trump heaped praises on British Prime Minister Theresa May this week while in the nation for a state visit.

“She’s probably a better negotiator than I am,” he said at a joint news conference.

Trump went on to tell May that she might not receive the recognition she would deserve if the divisive issue is ultimately resolved after she steps down.

“But I think you deserve a lot of credit,” he said. “I really do.”
