President Trump to Make First State Visit to United Kingdom in June

President Trump to Make First State Visit to United Kingdom in June

The U.S. President is to visit the United Kingdom between Monday 3 June to Wednesday 5 June at the invitation of Her Royal Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

During last year's trip, Trump met with Prime Minister Theresa May and had tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

May said: "The UK and United States have a deep and enduring partnership that is rooted in our common history and shared interests".

However, there will be no carriage procession, and the Queen is unable to host the presidential couple overnight at the palace, due to long-term refurbishment work, the source said.

Trump is then to visit Normandy on June 6 for the main D-Day commemorations, the statement said. During that time, mass protests were organized and the Baby Trump blimp debuted.

The Queen has formally invited the couple to make a State Visit and the Royal Household confirmed on Tuesday, with a statement and via social media, that the invitation has been accepted.

As many as 250,000 people protested Trump's visit.

But speculation is growing that Mr Trump will also spend at least part of his visit in Scotland, where he owns two golf courses and has family links through his late mother, Mary, who was born on the Isle of Lewis.

The Daily Mirror takes a different tone, calling Mr Trump "the worst USA president in living memory" but adding that the "president must be greeted formally with politeness, but this should not extend to servility".

The president and First Lady Melania Trump will be guests of the Queen and attend a ceremony in Portsmouth to mark 75 years since the D-Day landings. While on Sky News Mr Jones insisted that Mr Trump's election had "emboldened" racists all around the world.

President Trump backtracks on comments about Prime Minister May's handling of Brexit; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports from London.

The balloon, depicting the U.S. president as a nappy-wearing baby, was hoisted in Parliament Square during the American leader's visit to the United Kingdom last summer and the Stop Trump Coalition is planning to stage a similar aerial demonstration when he arrives in June.

His previous visit was, however, marked by large scale protests in London.

The Trumps will be reunited with Her Majesty in June.

At the same time as the State Visit was announced, President Trump was in the middle of a stream of tweets claiming Twitter was biased against Republicans because Barack Obama has more followers than he does.
