President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have a complicated history with hand-to-hand contact, but after their most intimate hand grip to date on Tuesday, the couple has shared yet another surprising public display of affection.
The Guardian focuses on Donald Trump's attempt to clean up the mess he has created with his comments by doing what he does best - denying it: "I didn't criticise PM".
This is what White House spokespeople do when a statement they're tasked to deliver is ridiculous and they'd rather attribute it to Trump rather than sacrifice their own credibility.
The Independent also takes up the president's attempt to go back on what he apparently told the Sun, with a somewhat tongue-in-cheek effort: "Trump's backtrack - the "highest level of special".
Trump has also frequently angered British politicians and has been involved in social media spats with London's Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan who he said had "done a very bad job on terrorism". "I love the United States but I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".
"Last time I checked, Scotland was part of the UK. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"
London endured four terrorists attacks in 2017. "Right now we're going to be talking about some things taking place in the Middle East and elsewhere". "Look at what is going on in London". I don't take questions from CNN", and then called on "John Roberts of Fox.
"The fact that [the blimp] may cause offense to somebody isn't a good reason to deter the hard-fought rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression", the mayor said.
Khan added: "I think our prime minister (Theresa May) should have the confidence to speak to the United States president on equal terms and it's for President Trump to say what he wants about me; I'm not going to rise to President Trump's views".
Even when he was ostensibly undermining Theresa May by saying that she "didn't listen to him" about Brexit, and posturing that he would walk away from a non-favourable trade deal with the United Kingdom, his pulse didn't seem to quicken once, as he did what he usually does, which is the opposite of what anyone would expect of a president on a diplomatic mission.
Ms Yvette Cooper, a Labour MP and chairman of Parliament's home affairs committee, said: "Trump's appalling behaviour makes me sympathise with Theresa May".
And he warned that Britain's trade relationship with the USA could be in jeopardy if May follows through with her "soft" Brexit blueprint.
Trump said the interview published by the Sun omitted his praise of May, and that his staff had taped the interview: "It's called fake news and we solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument".
