ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British Prime Minister Theresa May laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown soldier at Arlington National Cemetery before meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump at the White House. The meeting will mark Trump's first with a foreign leader since taking power a week ago, and it could go a long way toward determining how crucial Trump considers the traditional "special relationship" between the two countries. Trump rode an anti-Washington wave to win on Nov. 8, and May gained power in July after the "Brexit" vote that has put her country on a path to separate from the European Union. Trump has declared NATO obsolete and expressed a desire for warmer ties with Russia. May considers the trans-Atlantic alliance crucial and is skeptical of Russian President Vladimir Putin. They both want to begin work on a bilateral trade agreement, which for May would provide proof of stability amid the Brexit breakup and for Trump would support his belief that he can negotiate one-on-one trade pacts.
