Donald Trump praises 'eternal friendship' at state banquet


President Donald Trump has praised the "eternal friendship" between the UK and US as he joined a state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

The Queen said the countries were celebrating an alliance which had ensured the "safety and prosperity of both our peoples for decades".
The president is in the UK for a three-day state visit, which includes the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
He tweeted that Sadiq Khan - who had said the UK should "not roll out the red carpet" for Mr Trump - was a "stone cold loser".
But in his speech at the banquet, Mr Trump praised the courage of the British people during World War Two and called the Queen a "great, great woman".
"In that dark hour, the people of this nation showed the world what it means to be British," he said, adding that their bravery ensured that the destiny of the country "remained in your own hands".
