CAPITALS — UK Prime Minister Theresa May has said Donald Trump was "wrong" to retweet posts from a British far-right group.

But she stressed the "special relationship" between Britain and the US was "in both our nations' interests" and should continue.

And she rejected calls to cancel a state visit by the US president.

Speaking on a visit to Jordan, she said: "An invitation for a state visit has been extended and has been accepted. We have yet to set a date."

Quizzed about Mr Trump's tweets, she said: "The fact that we work together does not mean that we're afraid to say when we think the United States has got it wrong, and be very clear with them.

"And I'm very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do."

On Wednesday the US president retweeted three videos posted by the British far-right group.
