According to Sky sources, U.S. president, Donald Trump will be visiting U.K. in mid-July. It has been reported that it will be a low-key working visit.
The president was supposed to open the new U.S. Embassy in London in February but he canceled the trip explaining that the building was very pricey and tweeted that he didn’t like the fact that its location was being changed.
It has been reported that the president told U.K. Prime Minister, Theresa May at the World Economic Forum in Davos that he would be visiting the U.K. this summer and May invited Trump for a state visit when she visited him in the White House in January 2017.
This would be Trump’s first trip to the U.K. since he was elected in November 2016. However, Britons don’t seem very happy about the news and around 1.8 million people signed a petition demanding that the President should not be allowed to make a state visit to the UK.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan who has frequently clashed with the president also spoke about his visit and said that if Mr. Trump visits U.K., he should expect calm protests in the capital and told the Press Association: “We have got a great history in our city of protests.
“We have got a great history in our city of bringing about change by protest, the key thing is for it to be lawful, for it to be peaceful.”
