There’s seldom a week that’s not memorable under the Trump White House. President Donald Trump’s visit to the UK in mid-July was one of those moments.

In an exclusive interview with The Sun tabloid , Trump broke with all diplomatic etiquette, heavily criticizing his host, British Prime Minister Theresa May. The article was published as May wined and dined the Trumps at an elaborate black-tie dinner.

Tom Newton Dunn, political editor at The Sun, conducted the bombshell interview. He tells National Press Club Broadcast/Podcast Committee member Leone Lakhani about it, in a telephone interview from London.

Update-1 is produced by Mike Hempen. The podcast can be heard here on the Club website or on iTunes, Stitcher and TuneIn.
