(The Daily Mirror) Humilated Theresa May is now begging for a meeting with Donald Trump before
Christmas after being shown up by Nigel Farage.
The UKIP leader was the first foreign politician to meet the President-elect after his shock victory at the polls.
But Mrs May insisted relations with the Trump camp were “working well” and said they would meet “at the earliest opportunity”.
Mr Farage is furious after his bid to become a special envoy to liaise with Mr Trump was rejected.
The PM’s spokeswoman said: “The President-elect has talked about enjoying the same relationship that Reagan and Thatcher did.
"I don’t remember there being any third person in that relationship.”
Mr Farage said: “It shows they don’t care about the country.”
Mrs May’s spokeswoman claimed No10 had “an established route” to Mr Trump’s team.
Russian leader Vladimir Putin called Mr Trump and the pair agreed to tackle ISIS.
Putin said he was ready to talk to the US “on the basis of mutual
respect and non-intervention into each other’s internal affairs”.
In Brussels, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Mr Trump’s election could be “a moment of opportunity”.
And Mrs May suggested Mr Trump was right to say globalisation had
“downsides” for many people, in her Mansion House speech last night.
She said “globalisation in its current form has left too many people behind”.
