Trump To Make Downgraded Visit To Britain In Early 2018

Trump To Make Downgraded Visit To Britain In Early 2018

The Standard also speculates that the trip will be part of a wider tour, rather than a special visit to emphasise the "special relationship" between the United States and UK.

The Evening Standard reported that Mr Trump would stay with the usa ambassador rather than the royal family as he held talks with Theresa May and other officials.

"Not accurate, we've not yet scheduled anything for next year", Michael Anton, a national security official in the Trump administration, told The Hill when asked about the report.

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

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of Brexit Britain appearing overly desperate for friends, not least as the offer of an early state visit has been withdrawn", the Standard said in a commentary.

Downing Street insisted it was unaware of any change of plans, however, and officials said the intention was for Mr Trump to stay with the Queen.

MPs from across the political aisle criticised the invitation at the time and John Bercow, the Commons Speaker, announced he would oppose an address to Parliament.

London's mayor Sadiq Khan said he was "not sure it is appropriate for our government to roll out the red carpet" for Trump, but was reported to be open to a working visit.

There was also a public backlash, with nearly two million people signing a petition saying the U.S. president's "well documented misogyny and vulgarity" disqualified him from an audience with the Queen.

The President's spokesman said: "The subject never came up".

The move would avoid the controversy surrounding Mr Trump's state visit, which was offered by Theresa May within days of his inauguration but is yet to take place.
