In January 1953, during yet another trip to the United States, Churchill met with President-elect Eisenhower and with their mutual friend, Bernard Baruch (center). Eisenhower found Churchill "as charming and interesting as ever," but also "showing the effects of the passing years." He resisted what he felt was Churchill's attempt to establish closer Anglo-American ties than the current international situation warranted. Churchill, in turn, resisted Eisenhower's pleas for stronger British leadership in securing European unity.
