They spoke on the phone for the first time since the president outraged people by sharing three unverified, anti-Islam posts from the far-right group’s deputy leader Jayda Fransen.
He was rebuked that it was ‘wrong’ by the prime minister at the time, but she didn’t bring it up again when they spoke tonight.
Instead, they wished each other merry Christmas and talked about a post-Brexit trade deal, a Downing Street spokesman said.
High on the agenda was Trump’s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel – a move that has sparked outrage in many quarters as it is seen to put the two-state solution for Israel and Palestine in jeopardy.
Britain joined 13 other members of the United Nation’s Security Council in backing a resolution, vetoed by the US, which rejected the recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
May was expected to raise concerns about Trump’s move. Earlier this month, she branded his recognition ‘unhelpful’ in finding peace within the region.
In a statement about tonight’s call, Downing Street said: ‘They discussed the different positions we took on the recognition of Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, and agreed on the importance of the US bringing forward new proposals for peace and the international community supporting these efforts.
‘The Prime Minister also raised Yemen, highlighting our ongoing deep concerns at the humanitarian situation. They agreed on the vital importance of reopening humanitarian and commercial access to prevent famine and alleviate the suffering of innocent Yemenis.
‘The Prime Minister updated the president on the recent good progress of the Brexit negotiations, and the president set out the progress he had made on his economic agenda. They agreed on the importance of a swift post-Brexit bilateral trade deal.
‘They wished each other a very merry Christmas and looked forward to keeping in close touch.’
Theresa May also offered her condolences for the loss of life in a train crash in Washington state this week.
