Donald Trump expected to visit United Kingdom in 2018, says U.S. ambassador

However, Johnson said the disagreement had been "probably misinterpreted".

Trump's retweeting last month of three anti-Muslim videos taken from the Twitter feed of a member of the far-right Britain First group caused outrage in the United Kingdom and led to senior politicians speaking out against any visit.

Theresa May has faced intense criticism for offering the incoming president a state visit when she became the first world leader to meet him in the Oval Office.

Last month, Trump retweeted a number of anti-Muslim messages from far right political group Britain First and was rebuked by May.

"Absolutely, I think he will come", Woody Johnson told BBC Radio 4. "I think the way he looks at it is that security is his number one oath, it's protecting Americans".

"It is protecting Americans here and the US". So if you look at it in the context of that, that's what he's trying to do.

"Is he ideal and appeasing everybody?" There's no question some feathers were ruffled with that.

The White House insisted Trump knew nothing about the party or its leader Jayda Fransen when he shared the inflammatory videos, and Johnson said his intentions were simply misunderstood. The president had not yet set a date for the possible visit, he added.

It refused to cancel the trip despite widespread condemnation, including from London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who said Trump had promoted a "vile, extremist group that exists exclusively to sow division and hatred in our country".

"London is a beacon of diversity. Many of us love America and Americans but President Trump has on a number of occasions shown his views are inconsistent with the values Londoners hold dear".
