Trump is hosting British Prime Minister Theresa May at the White House on Friday to discuss post-Brexit trade ties and inject new momentum into the "special relationship" between the United States and Britain.

"Getting the most out of the 1st full week -- tomorrow @POTUS will speak by phone with leaders of France, Germany and Russia," White House spokesman Sean Spicer said on Twitter Friday.

The pair spoke by telephone in November, shortly after Trump's election victory, and "declared the need for active joint work to normalize" ties, according to the Kremlin.

Trump told Putin he is looking forward to "a strong and enduring relationship with Russia and the people of Russia", according to Trump's team.

Relations were strained under Trump's predecessor Barack Obama, notably over the crisis in Ukraine and Moscow's alleged interference in the November election.
