'He was being a gentleman': Theresa May speaks about holding hands with Donald Trump in Vogue interview

Theresa May did a photoshoot for Vogue — take a look

The interview is quite a coup for US Vogue's British editor Anna Wintour, who received a damehood in the Queen's New Year's Honours List.

Speaking just after her visit to Donald Trump in America, the PM insisted in the Vogue interview that the US President was "being a gentlemen" by holding her hand as the pair walked through the White House.

Asked by the magazine what she thought of the U.S. commander-in-chief, she said "I like to think we got on".

May also shrugged off comparisons with former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and asked to cite her core values, named "opportunity, freedom, security".

Mrs May also admits that at home she cooks and her husband Philip, a banker, loads the dishwasher.

Interviewer Ms Wood pressed Mrs May on her discussions with President Trump, asking if she had heeded to the demands of thousands of women who asked her to confront him on previous comments he had made about women.

Despite some in the media appearing to be obsessed with her shoes, Vogue described Mrs May's style as "decidedly no-drama" and said she operated under "a carefully preserved carapace of conformity". "I'm Theresa May. I do things my way".

"All I would say is, I've been very clear: I'm not afraid to raise issues and the nature of the relationship is such that we should be able to be frank and open with each other".

She responded: "Well, I don't".

"That's just something that happens, and you accept that".

It is a magazine which is close to the Prime Minister's heart, and she chose a lifetime subscription as her luxury item when she appeared on Radio 4's Desert Island Discs in 2014.

Asked what the couple argue about, she remarks: "Do you know, I think we argue about the same things that most people argue about - like, who has the remote?" But she also wore it for her European Union referendum speech in April of previous year, her sole contribution to the Remain campaign."People have described it as a lucky suit", she said.

But in an interview with American Vogue, she laughed off the hand gesture, saying: "I think he was actually being a gentleman". So yes, I did vote to remain.

Asked about the £1,000 Amanda Wakeley pants - worn by Mrs May for an interview with The Sunday Times - the Prime Minister retorted: "Look, throughout my political career, people have commented on what I wear".

"I think it's very important that we always ensure we maintain the fundamental freedoms that we have".
