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.

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".
