Donald Trump won't be state guest as United Kingdom visit downgraded

Donald Trump won't be state guest as United Kingdom visit downgraded

Plans now being worked up would see Mr Trump visit London early next year, meeting with British counterparts and the new usa ambassador Woody Johnson.

It is also possible that he could formally open the new United States embassy at Nine Elms, near Battersea Power Station, the newspaper reported.

However he will not sleep at Buckingham Palace as the guest of the Queen, and there will not be a glitzy banquet in his honour.

The ongoing controversy over whether President Donald Trump will be heading to Britain to meet Queen Elizabeth took a new turn on Wednesday.

"Our position on the State Visit has not changed - an offer has been extended and President Trump has accepted".

"We can question the wisdom of Brexit Britain appearing overly desperate for friends, not least as the offer of an early state visit has been withdrawn", the Standard said in a commentary.

House of Commons speaker John Bercow said he would oppose the president being invited to give an address in Westminster Hall, citing the president's controversial travel ban and saying "opposition to racism and sexism" were important considerations.

Donald Trump is set to make a scaled-down visit to Britain next year, it has been reported.

Thousands of people launched protests against the move, while more than a million people signed a petition to stop the trip from going ahead.

Downing Street insisted it was unaware of any change of plans, however, and officials said the intention was for Mr Trump to stay with the Queen.

However the speculation came to nothing.

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