When the left wants to look toward a more liberal society, they’re fond of looking toward Europe, where even the conservatives are kind of liberal. However, that seems to have taken a turn in recent years — and nowhere was it more evident than when U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May visited the United States.
During a Thursday foreign policy speech before GOP lawmakers in Philadelphia, May not only told the crowd that she was willing to work with President Donald Trump, but also called his victory a “new era of American renewal” and that his win had come out of “the hopes and aspirations of working men and women across this land.”
According to the Washington Free Beacon, May told lawmakers that she hoped the U.K. and U.S. could forge stronger ties.
“It is in our interests — those of Britain and America together — to stand strong together to defend our values, our interests, and the very ideas in which we believe,” May said.
“We should build the relationships, systems, and processes that make cooperation more likely than conflict,” she continued. “And that, particularly after the illegal annexation of Crimea, give assurance to Russia’s neighboring states that their security is not in question.”
She added that when it came to Vladimir Putin, the world should “engage and beware.”
She then managed to infuriate every liberal across the fruited plain.
“As dawn breaks on a new era of American renewal,” May said, “not just as prime minister of the United Kingdom, but as a fellow conservative who believes in the same principles that underpin the agenda of your party — the value of liberty, the dignity of work, the principles of nationhood, family, economic prudence, patriotism — and putting power in the hands of the people.”
“And your victory in these elections gives you the opportunity to put (these values) at the heart of this new era of American renewal,” she continued. “President Trump’s victory, achieved in defiance of all the pundits and the polls, and rooted, not in the corridors of Washington, but in the hopes and aspirations of working men and women across this land.”

According to The U.K. Telegraph, May also visited the White House on Friday, where President Trump said that “Great days lie ahead for our two peoples and our two countries” and that Brexit would be “a wonderful thing” for the United Kingdom.
