Theresa May insists Donald Trump was “being a gentleman” when he held her hand during her US visit shortly after he became 45th president.
In an interview with the style magazine American Vogue, she says: “We were about to walk down a ramp, and he said it might be a bit awkward.”
Asked what she made of Mr Trump, she adds: “I like to think we got on.”
Mrs May also admits that at home she cooks and her husband Philip, a banker, loads the dishwasher.
In the wide-ranging article, the prime minister is pictured in a variety of poses and answers questions on issues, including the constant comparison between her and the only other British female PM, Margaret Thatcher.
“There can only ever be one Margaret Thatcher,” she says. “I’m Theresa May.”
