The BBC's Laura Kuenssberg and the Sun's Tom Newton Dunn are being praised for their work in the States.

Earlier today a historic press conference featuring the British Prime Minister Theresa May and the President of the United States took place.

In amongst the accredited American journalists putting their questions to the PM and POTUS were a few British reporters too. The BBC's Laura Kuenssberg and the Sun's Tom Newton Dunn to be specific.

When the mic was eventually passed to them, they didn't hold back with their questioning.

Laura asked where in the talks the pair of leaders didn't agree.

And she also pressed the president on his controversial views that torture works and is a viable tool to use in the war on terror.

Donald Trump turned to May and said:

Was this your choice of a question? There goes that relationship.

Clearly, he wasn't too pleased with being called out in front of the world's press.

As Trump and May answered the questions put to them, so to speak, Twitter was suddenly ablaze with praise from viewers all over America.

They were impressed by the directness of the journalists, and many thought the American news agencies could learn a thing or two from them.

People all over the world took note:

And we at home were singing their praises too:

Good work all.
