British Prime Minister Theresa May Sets Resignation Date

Theresa May became Britain's prime minister in 2016 with one overriding goal: to lead Britain out of the European Union. After three years, though, the U.K. is still in the EU, and May's time in 10 Downing St. is ending. She announced Friday she will step down as the Conservative Party's leader on June 7, remaining as caretaker prime minister during a party leadership contest to choose her successor. Here & Now's Jeremy Hobson talks with BBC political correspondent Rob Watson (@robwatsonbbc).
This BBC interview can be heard in the Here & Now podcast or with the WBUR app.
