"We have the same ideals, and there is nothing that would happen to you that we wouldn't be there to fight for you".

"I would do TPP if we were able to make a substantially better deal", Trump told CNBC in an interview while attending the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos, Switzerland.

"The trade concepts and discussions really, I think I can say most importantly, will be taking place, are going to lead to tremendous increases in trade between our two countries which is great for both in terms of jobs".

May added that she and Trump had a "great discussion" in their meeting and praised the "really special relationship" between the United States and UK.

"I think the feeling is mutual about liking each other a lot", he said.

Speaking to reporters in Davos ahead of the speech, Trump said he expected his "positive message" to be "very well received".

For her part, May said the two long-time allies have a "special relationship". "In insulting the homeland of their ancestors - who had no say in the genocide and atrocity that was slavery - you have again violated the dignity of those with roots in Africa, wherever they are in the world", Mohale stated in his letter slamming Trump.

The two leaders concluded their meeting "by asking officials to work together on finalizing the details of a visit by the president to the United Kingdom later this year", May's office said in an emailed statement.

Trump also drew fire from political leaders in the U.K.in November after re-tweeting propaganda by a fringe far-right British political group.

Appearing at a brief press conference this afternoon, Mr Trump stressed what he said was "great" personal relationship with Mrs May.

May criticized Trump previous year for retweeting anti-Muslim extremists, and his state visit has been rescheduled several times.

"Klaus actually told me this is a crowd like they have never had before in Davos, including all of you people [journalists], like they've never had before, so that's good", Trump said.

However, he confessed that although he does not expect any progress at the meetings with other world or entrepreneurial leaders, Trump's interactions in Davos may provide a notion of the limits of USA unilateralism.

Trump had been expected to travel to London earlier this month for the grand opening of a new, state-of-the-art United States embassy here.
