"I think what's important is for people to feel that I'm delivering for them".

May told Vogue magazine, in an article published Monday, that "we were about to walk down a ramp, and he said it might be a bit awkward".

"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 said.

Theresa May has spoken publicly for the first time about holding hands with Donald Trump, saying that she believes the USA president was just "being a gentleman" when he took her hand during her visit to the White House.

Now, in an interview and photoshoot with fashion magazine American Vogue, the Tory PM said she would "like to think" she "got on" with Trump and that he was a "gentleman" during their meeting.

The PM added: "I mean, obviously he has, uh.it was a stunning election victory, in that he's someone who has not been involved in politics".

Mrs May was pictured by renowned portrait photographer Annie Leibovitz - whose previous subjects have included John Lennon, the Rolling Stones and the Queen - wearing knee-high leather boots as she went for a walk with husband Philip.

Interviewer Gaby Wood, who visited 10 Downing Street a few days after the Washington visit, quizzed May about whether she challenged Trump on his comments she had previously described as "unacceptable" about women.

The incident took place in January as the two leaders walked from the East Room press conference down the White House colonnade to the West Wing for lunch.

Ms May also said she would "stop wearing" the green and blue Vivienne Westwood pantsuit that she said had become known as her "lucky suit".

Despite the British media's long-standing obsession with May's shoes and the recent furore over her expensive leather pants, Vogue describes the PM's style as "decidedly no-drama" and says that she operates under "a carefully preserved carapace of conformity". So yes, I did vote to remain.

May also shrugged off comparisons with former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, and asked to cite her core values, named "opportunity, freedom, security". "But also what's important is that the country feels, I think, that it wants to come together". On whether she confronted Trump about the comments, she recalled: "Well, I don't".
