January 20th, 2017. Donald Trump is sworn in as 45th President of America.
The visit has been part of a secret plan being worked on by Downing Street over the last week.
A Whitehall source, said: "They are really, really keen to capture the Reagan-Thatcher idea: A new populist in the White House and a strong woman in Number 10.
"They want to rekindle that as soon as possible."
A Downing Street spokesman told Express.co.uk plans had not been finalised yet but refused to deny Mrs May would travel to the United States as early as next week.
Hours after Mr Trump's inauguration on Friday afternoon, the future of the controversial Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) between the US and EU was thrown into doubt after the White House's website page on the deal was wiped.
Negotiations on the trade deal started in February 2014 but talks came to a standstill under Barack Obama.
During the election campaign Donald Trump said he would bin the beleaguered deal and it appears just hours into his presidency he has kept his promise.

While protesters set cars alight in Washington and opponents across the world held commiseration parties, Vladimir Putin supporters held all-night parties in Russia after President Trump signalled a close relationship with the Russian President.
What has been branded "Trumpomania" has spread across Russia since the US election result, with the new President set to meet Mr Putin in Iceland as one of his first overseas trips in office in a bid to repair western relations with the Kremlin.
A Russia-US summit will most likely to be held in Reykjavik, which would replicate the famous cold war meeting between ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev in 1986.
Days before the inauguration, Mr Trump said he would consider dropping sanctions against Russia if Moscow helped tackle terrorism and worked the US on other goals.
A source who discussed a meeting plan with Mr Trump and officials at the Russian embassy in London, said: "The idea of a summit with Putin is definitely on the cards. The Russians are also keen on it."
Details of leaders Mr Trump will meet should become more clear over the next few weeks.
However, he wasted no time in signalling which direction his presidency will go in by vowing to build a nuclear missile defence system to counter attacks from North Korea and Iran within minutes of his inauguration.
Mr Trump also announced plans to scrap Barack Obama's climate change prevention plans.
The TV personality said his predecessor's hard-fought plans, including cutting carbon emissions from coal-fired power stations, was "harmful and unnecessary" and he was committed to "maximising the use of American resources".
Mr Trump claimed he would increase wages by more than $30billion over the next seven years – despite a presidential term being four years – by diverting revenue from energy production to pay for rebuilding roads, bridges, schools and other strained infrastructure.

She said Trump's views, what he says and politics are aimed at people she cares about – including "women, people of colour, immigrants and the LGBT community".
The actress added: ”If that is all true then it is important that we all stand up and be here, together, in solidarity."
Just before 3.30pm GMT (10.30am DST), Mr and Mrs Trump were joined by vice-president Mike Pence and his wife Karen at the Washington National Cathedral for a prayer service as their first official engagement of the presidency.
