Trump Won't Get Royal Welcome During UK Visit

12 October, 2017, 00:25 | Author: Essie Rivera
  • Donald Trump is definitely coming to the UK in 2018 - but NOT on a state visit

The visit would reportedly form part of a tour of several different countries and would not include the extravagant celebrations which are attached to state visits.

Penny called Nigel Farage after it was reported that the US President is going to make a scaled-down visit to the United Kingdom next year.

"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 state visit is still set to go ahead at some point, though no dates have been set in stone just yet.

The White House denied that report and May's Downing Street office said plans for the state visit had not changed.

Playtex Plates and Bowls for Children
The recall affects approximately 3.6 million plates and bowls in the USA , and another 1.9 million more in Canada. They have printed designs including superheros, princesses, cartoon characters, princesses, cars, and more.

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

In the meantime Trump has visited Emmanuel Macron in Paris for Bastille Day festivities, held talks with Angela Merkel in Hamburg, toured the Vatican and met the Pope, visited Belgium's King Philippe at the Royal palace in Brussels and held talks with European Union leaders at their headquarters.

However the speculation came to nothing. The offer had been extended, accepted by Trump, and no dates had been arranged. This was still the position on Wednesday.

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. Which I'm sure Theresa May is devastated about, seeing as how she seems to want to sort out a post-Brexit trade deal to replace all the trade we probably won't be doing with the EU.
