U.S. President Donald Trump says he is “feeling badly” for British Prime Minister Theresa May who announced Friday that she would resign.
May held an emotional news conference in London hours earlier and said she would step aside June 7 after being unable to secure a Brexit deal.
The president, leaving the White House for Japan, told reporters that “I like her very much.”
Trump will meet with May in the U.K. early next month. He is heading to Europe for a state dinner in England as well as D-Day anniversary ceremonies.
