Donald Trump Rules Out Surprise Visit To Britain To Avoid Protests

Donald Trump Rules Out Surprise Visit To Britain To Avoid Protests

Government officials have hinted that the President is expected to stop at Turnberry, his golf resort in Scotland, while Theresa May's team are said to be on standby for Trump's arrival at Downing Street. Or he might visit Mrs.

James Slack, a spokesman for Mrs.

Mr Trump told the Prime Minister at the beginning of June that he would delay his intended visit until the British public welcomed him.

After Prime Minister Theresa May invited him for a visit when he was just seven days into office, activists formed the Stop Trump coalition and pledged the largest demonstration in United Kingdom history.

Trump is scheduled to attend the G20 Summit Hamburg next weekend, and then he will join celebrations for Bastille Day in France on July 14. Further doubt was cast on the invitation when it went unmentioned in the Queen's Speech, where the schedule for visiting dignitaries is usually announced.

The smaller visit would have taken the place of the official state appearance, with the intention of allowing Trump to enter and leave the country without fanfare and without protest.

Officials are making preparations for a short notice visit by the US President Donald Trump despite protests against such a trip after his election.

Guardian columnist Owen Jones tweeted on Sunday: "Donald Trump is planning to sneak into Britain to avoid protests".

The US President has sparked widespread anger after tweeting a mocked-up video of him beating up a man with a CNN logo over his face.

Opponents of the USA president are on "standby" for street demonstrations, following a petition against a state visit attracting more than 1.8 million signatures.

Anti-Trump protesters are now being told to be on "standby" amid reports of a sudden visit. "We're asking Britain to be on stand-by to take to the streets with just hours' notice if necessary".

Earlier, neighbours told the Standard that the "majority of people don't want him" to visit and described Mr Trump as a "laughing stock".

"That's because we haven't yet agreed a date with the White House".
