President Trump is urging outgoing British Prime Minister Theresa May to “stick around” for a trade deal. The president made the comments Tuesday at a business roundtable at St. James Palace before the two leaders met privately to further discuss trade and security.

President Trump expressed appreciation for the relationship he’s had with the United Kingdom, and said he’s hoping to strengthen that bond. The U.S. and Britain are working to strike a bilateral trade agreement, and the President said the deal would be very fair.

“It’s an honor to have worked with you and I don’t know exactly what your timing is, but stick around, let’s do this deal,”  President Trump told the outgoing prime minister. “Thank you very much, thank you very much.”

The president’s comments come after he posted a tweet Monday, saying a big trade deal is possible once the U.K. gets rid of its “EU shackles.”
