Theresa May’s ‘blessed’ by dad’s message of support
Theresa May has taken a message of thanks from her father’s birthday from the House of Commons to her office and her own home.
The Prime Minister spoke of her “blessing” of her father in a statement to the House on Friday, thanking him for his “insightful, heartfelt and profound advice”.
“This is a gift for all who know and love him, and the House, and we thank you for your kind words and thoughtful consideration,” Mrs May said.
“He is the greatest father and husband I know.
He will be missed and he will always be in my heart.
I will always cherish and respect his contributions and I will do everything in my power to keep him and his legacy alive.”
Theresa May has spoken of her ‘blighted’ family in a written statement to MPs, thanking her father for his advice.
She said: “He was a huge influence on my life and his advice was always good, thoughtful and insightful.
It is the most important advice I have ever received.”
In a statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Office, she said:”It is my privilege to share with you today the blessings of a father and grandfather, my husband, my father-in-law and his great-grandfather.”
The prime minister said she was “baffled” by the “bizarre” way her father had spoken about her.
The prime minster said her family would be celebrating his birthday with a party on Sunday.
“We are celebrating with him this very special birthday and he is very proud of it,” Mrs Trump said.
Theresa Marthays father was the first to visit the White House in 1957 and was a major figure in the Kennedy administration.
He died last year aged 82, leaving his daughter and three sons with their father’s legacy.
Mrs Trump said the two were the “only two people” who had known each other “from a very young age”.
She said her father was “always very honest” and was “wonderful”.
“He was always looking for the next thing, and he was a big, big admirer of the United States,” Mrs Marthay said.
She added that she was honoured to have had the opportunity to work with her father and the “huge impact” he had on her life.
“It’s such a privilege to have the opportunity with my father to work on issues that I think most people don’t even know about,” Mrs Clinton said.
