Theresa May to Resign as UK PM June 7

Britain’s Prime Minister Theresa May has said she’ll step down from her position and as U.K. Conservative Party leader on June 7.

She said this on Friday at a press conference in front of 10 Downing Street.

May said she’s resigning after she’s tried, three times, to make Brexit a reality.

“Ever since I first stepped through the door behind me as prime minister I have striven to make the United Kingdom a country that works not just for the privileged few but for everyone, and to honor the result of the referendum,” May said.

She added: “I have done everything I can to convince MPs to back this deal. Sadly, I have not been able — I tried three times.”

“I believe it was right to persevere….it is now clear to me that it is in the best interest of the country for a new PM to lead that effort,” May said.

May held back tears throughout the speech and was visibly tearful as she concluded her speech.
