Trump to visit United Kingdom in early 2018

According to the London Evening Standard newspaper, U.S. President Donald Trump will make a working visit to Britain in early 2018, with a full state visit to follow subsequently on an unspecified date.

Instead of the traditional "special relationship" tour, it is likely to form part of a trip to several countries. A state visit for the USA president is usually an honour for their second term.

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

Theresa May's offer of a state visit to the first-term President was greeted with the threat of mass protests by opponents.

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 invitation was contested by some lawmakers, and House of Commons Speaker John Bercow declared he wouldn't get the opportunity to address parliament. "The state visit should never have been offered, and with reports that Trump doesn't want to come if he will face protests, it may well never happen".

And if the American body politic doesn't experience a complete meltdown this week, perhaps others will notice. The president claimed corker "Begged" him for an endorsement and " didn't have the guts to run".

The Trump administration immediately dismissed the report, adding that the trip, expected next year, is still in the planning stages.

However a White House spokesperson denied the topic had been discussed.

But the invitation prompted a huge backlash as leading politicians said Mr Trump should not be granted the honour because of his controversial policies on immigration and terrorism.

"Exact dates for President Trump to visit have not yet been arranged".
