Trump Visit to UK Will Face Mass Opposition, Say Campaigners

Trump Visit to UK Will Face Mass Opposition, Say Campaigners”

It has now emerged that the visit will be a more low-key event where Trump would be a guest of the United States ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, rather than the Queen.

In the meantime Trump has visited Emmanuel Macron in Paris for Bastille Day festivities, held talks with Angela Merkel in Hamburg, toured the Vatican and met the Pope, visited Belgium's King Philippe at the Royal palace in Brussels and held talks with European Union leaders at their headquarters.

The threat of protests is a big part of why his state visit was postponed.

After inspecting a Guard of Honour, the visiting party then travels in a carriage procession to Buckingham Palace.

Plans are underway for US President Donald Trump to make a long-awaited visit to Britain early next year, but the trip will be downgraded from a state visit and will not include an audience with Queen Elizabeth II, the London Evening Standard said on Wednesday.

Downing Street declined to comment but has said that its position has not changed since the offer was extended and accepted.

"If the Trump visit is back on, so is the mass opposition to it. Theresa May may be hoping that the heat has died down, but she must prepare to be disappointed".

A full-blown State Visit would then be planned, possibly for later in the year.

London mayor Sadiq Khan had previously raised concerns about Trump's state visit.

May's offer of a State Visit, an honour usually reserved for U.S. presidents in their second term, sparked mass protests and a petition calling for its cancellation.

Donald Trump's predecessor Barack Obama visited the Queen in 2011 with this wife Michelle.

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of Brexit Britain appearing overly desperate for friends, not least as the offer of an early state visit has been withdrawn", the Standard said in a commentary.
