Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron met former President Donald Trump in Florida, before heading to Washington DC for talks.

The former prime minister is visiting the United States to hold talks with senior government officials about the wars in Gaza and Ukraine.

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

Lord Cameron had previously criticized Trump, who is likely to run for the Republican Party in the US elections.

The British Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office said that Lord Cameron is expected to speak with US Secretary of State Antony Blinken during Lord Cameron's visit to the United States about supporting Ukraine and achieving stability in the Middle East.

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

She was responding to an article written by Lord Cameron, in which he warned the United States against showing “the weakness that was shown against Hitler in the 1930s.”

During his upcoming talks with Mr Blinken, Lord Cameron is also set to address the deaths of three British men working for the global aid organization World Central Kitchen in Gaza.

Last week, American media reported that Blinken spoke with the father of the American-Canadian citizen who was also killed in the Israeli airstrike.

“I think if he came to visit our country, I think it would unite us all against him,” Lord Cameron said at the time, when Trump had not yet been elected.

Trump responded by warning that he may not have a “very good relationship” with Cameron during his presidency.

In his memoirs published in 2019, Lord Cameron also said that he found it “disappointing” that Trump won the election, and that this was due to his “protectionist, xenophobic and misogynistic interventions.”
