Theresa May can't afford to let rip at Donald Trump, argues Iain Dale, no matter what he says about women or torture or walls.

A Pep Talk For Theresa May Before She Meets Trump
Iain Dale sounds a note of caution for those who think Theresa May should let rip at Donald Trump for his comments about women and torture.
Dale said: "Her role is to be Prime Minister of this country, to do the best that she can do for this country. If that mean being slightly more diplomatic than she might like to be, then I'm afraid so be it.
"She can explain that she doesn't like his comments on torture, that she doesn't like what he said about women...but she's got to be diplomatic.
"This country needs a free trade deal with the US."
