"Relationship" was the word of the day at the joint press conference between U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and President Donald Trump.

But May's choice to call on BBC reporter Laura Kuenssberg threw a wrench in the whole "special relationship" thing.

"What do you say to our viewers at home who are worried about some of your views and worried about you becoming the leader of the free world?" Kuenssberg asked Trump.

Trump replied, "This was your question? There goes that relationship."

Kuenssberg said, "Can you tell us where in your talks you did disagree?"

There's plenty that Trump and May don't see eye to eye on — he's expressed sympathy for Russia and skepticism of NATO, while May feels exactly the opposite.

But there's at least one common position binding the two leaders together.

Trump told May, "I think Brexit's going to be a wonderful thing for your country."
