US President Donald Trump wished Britons “best of luck” with the early election announced by their prime minister, Theresa May, on Tuesday.
A brief statement from the White House claimed that British Prime Minister Theresa May called US President Donald Trump regarding her plans to call a special election in June.
The statement also read that “President Trump wished the British people the best of luck in their electoral process.”
Trump has previously hailed the result of the British referendum last year that approved the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union.
May on Tuesday unexpectedly called for the snap June 8 general election to strengthen her position ahead of the Brexit talks with the European Union.
One of her goals is to eventually obtain a free-trade deal with the United States.
