David Cameron meets Donald Trump in Florida ahead of Blinken talks

Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron has met former President Donald Trump in Florida, before heading onto Washington DC for talks. The former PM is in the US for talks with senior government officials about the wars in Gaza and Ukraine.

It is not unusual for foreign secretaries to meet opposition candidates during visits abroad.

Lord Cameron has previously criticised Mr Trump, who will likely stand for the Republican Party in the US election.

During Lord Cameron’s visit to the US, he is expected to speak to US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken about support for Ukraine and bringing stability to the Middle East, the UK’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office said.

Republican lawmakers have been blocking a proposed $60bn (£47bn) military aid package for Ukraine for months.

Mr Trump, and his supporters within the party, oppose the US package providing aid to Ukraine. Those in the House of Representatives have vowed to vote against the package without additional funding for US border security being agreed to first.
