WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday called the results of the British election - which left Prime Minister Theresa May struggling to hold on to power - “surprising.”

Trump, who was answering a shouted question from a reporter during an Oval Office photo opportunity, did not expand on his comment.
