President Trump's British trip 'downgraded from state visit in face of opposition'

Reuters

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.

How will US President Donald Trump feel about being downgraded by the Queen?

Instead of receiving a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace, the revised programme would see Trump embark on a "working" trip as part of a tour of other European states.

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

A spokesman for the Foreign Office said: "Our position on the State Visit has not changed - an offer has been extended and President Trump has accepted".

That plan was then put on hold this summer after Mr Trump reportedly spoke to Mrs May on the phone and said he didn't want his trip marred by protests.

She was told by her father , Wesley Matthews, to stand near a tree next to their home for not finishing her milk . She is described as Asian and was last seen wearing a pink top, black pajama bottoms and pink flip flops.

The visit will not include a stay with the Queen like Barack Obama enjoyed in 2011.

MPs, celebrities and trade unionists formed a "Stop Trump Coalition" vowing "one of the biggest demonstrations in British history to make very clear... that this is not in our name".

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

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

Broadcasting from New York, Nigel said: "I do not accept the view and someone's got to come on to convince me, I don't accept the view that we shouldn't have him in this country and talk about the really important things that matter to both of us". But if a meeting with the Queen is the only card Theresa May has to play when trading with Trump, we are in for a long Brexit winter.
