British Prime Minister Theresa May met with her shaken-up Cabinet on Tuesday as she tried to restore government unity after the resignations of two top ministers over Brexit.

May has spent the past few days fighting for her political life as first Brexit Secretary David Davis and then Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson quit, saying May's plans for future relations with the European Union did not live up to their idea of Brexit. May, who has tried to keep calm and carry on, said in a tweet that it was a "productive Cabinet meeting" and that she was "looking forward to a busy week."

The resignations rocked May in a week that includes a NATO summit starting Wednesday and a U.K. visit by U.S. President Donald Trump from Thursday.

The trans-Atlantic relationship has had some awkward moments since Trump's election. He has criticized May over her response to terrorism and approach to Brexit, and infuriated many in Britain when he retweeted a far-right group. Asked Tuesday whether May should be replaced as prime minister, Trump said it was "up to the people, not up to me."
