Britain's Foreign Minister Jeremy Hunt said on Thursday that Theresa May would still be prime minister when US President Donald Trump pays a visit to the UK in early June.

"Theresa May will be prime minister to welcome him, and rightly so," Hunt said when asked by a reporter who he expected would be prime minister when Trump starts his state visit to Britain on June 3rd. 

May was under intense pressure to name a date for her departure after failing in her latest bid to break the Brexit impasse in parliament. 

Hunt declined to comment when asked what he would discuss with May in a meeting later on Thursday.
