In Pictures: The 'special relationship' during Donald Trump's presidency

The much-vaunted Special Relationship has not always been easy but more than a year into Donald Trump's presidency he is yet to visit the United Kingdom despite being offered a state visit as he took up residence in the White House.

His recent decision not to "cut the ribbon" to open the US Embassy in London's Battersea means that all the president's meetings with Theresa May to date have taken place outside the UK.

However on Thursday in Davos the US president stressed his country's love for the UK and hailed the ties between the nations.
