Donald Trump WILL visit United Kingdom within months as trip finally confirmed

Oct 17, 2017, 00:46

On Jan. 27, British Prime Minister Theresa May announced during a White House press conference that she had invited Trump to the United Kingdom for an official state visit, an honor that has historically been offered to American president only after they enter their second term in office.

The president's scaled-back visit will likely form part of a tour of several countries, according to the Evening Standard.

Trump is planning his visit to Britain as part of a wider tour.

"He will not stay at Buckingham Palace".

The newspaper noted that the postponement of Trump's visit followed "threats of boycotts and mass protests" in the months after May's invitation to Trump during a?visit to Washington in January.

A full-blown State Visit would then be planned, possibly for later in the year.

The first real clue that the planned State Visit would not be going ahead in 2017 came in the Queen's Speech in June.

However, Ms May's office said she was not aware of plans for a "working visit" and said the position on the state visit had not changed, Independent reported. The offer had been extended, accepted by Trump, and no dates had been arranged.

The US president has been told that, although his invitation from Theresa May stands, it will only be as a stripped-down "working visit", Foreign Office sources said.

It was immediately criticised as a breach of convention, as state visits are usually reserved for a president's second term.

London mayor Sadiq Khan had previously raised concerns about Trump's state visit.

"We can question the wisdom of Brexit Britain appearing overly desperate for friends, not least as the offer of an early state visit has been withdrawn", the Standard said in a commentary.
