Theresa May and Donald Trump are trying to repair their special relationship
The pair were snapped as they tried to repair their ‘Special Relationship’ with private talks held in the garden during the summit in Italy this afternoon.
Theresa May’s spokesman said: "The president and the prime minister reaffirmed their commitment to increasing trade between the UK and the U.S., including a post-Brexit trade deal.”
The agreement comes a day after the British Prime Minister pushed the US President to take action following a series of information leaks after the Manchester bombing earlier this week.
Theresa May also used the meeting to push for parallel Brexit talks
The new agreement came during the G7 summit in Italy
Mrs May appeared unimpressed in some photos with the billionaire in Brussels yesterday as she made it clear that “intelligence must remain secure”.
But today the pair appear to be repairing damage to the Special Relationship as they attended talks in the picturesque Italian town of Taormina.
Mr Trump hit out at the “deeply troubling leaks” – vowing he would “get to the bottom of it” as he desperately grovelled to Mrs May.
He also warned that the “horror” of the Manchester attacks will “continue forever” if world leaders failed to tackle the problems of terrorism.

"She also made clear that Britain and the 27 EU member states should be discussing our future relationship with the EU at the same time as discussing the terms of our withdrawal."

Mr Macron used the meeting to offer to help Mrs May marshal support following the Manchester terror attack, drawing on his own country's experience of several jihadist attacks that have killed more than 230 people since 2015.
He told the PM: "We know this kind of attack
"We will … do everything we can in order to increase this cooperation at the European level, in order to do more from a bilateral point of view against terrorism. We will do that during the whole day, because that's the common challenge."
