President Trump boasted about his "great relationship" with UK Prime Minister Theresa May during a bilateral meeting at the World Economic Forum in Davos Thursday, adding that the reports of tension between the two is "a false rumor."

Why it matters: The meeting is the first time the two leaders have met since May criticized Trump for retweeting anti-Muslim hate videos from British far-right leader Jayda Fransen in November. Since then media reports have characterized the leaders' relationship as strained and Trump cancelled a planned trip to London.
