In the ongoing furor surrounding President Trump's mental fitness, the AP reports that British Prime Minister Theresa May has dismissed any concerns, saying the US president acts in what he sees as the best interests of his country. Asked in an interview with the BBC whether she thought concerns about Trump's mental state were serious, May said: "No." She said that "when I deal with President Trump, what I see is somebody who is committed to ensuring that he is taking decisions in the best interests of the United States." May reaffirmed that Trump would visit Britain, though she did not give a date or say whether it would be a full state visit or a lower-key working trip. (More President Trump stories.)
