President Trump welcomed British Prime Minister Theresa May to the White House Friday in his first meeting with a foreign leader.

The president greeted Ms. May enthusiastically outside the doors of the West Wing, then took her to the Oval Office, where he proudly showed her a bust of Winston Churchill that he’d returned to prominent display after former President Obama had removed it.

Mr. Trump said the Churchill bust was “the original.”

“It’s a great honor to have Winston Churchill back,” the president said as he shook hands with the prime minister.

The two leaders conferred about trade and other issues before they were to hold a joint news conference in the East Room, Mr. Trump’s first as president.
