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

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

DONALD TRUMP is set to make a low-key trip to Britain within the next few months in a bid to avoid the mass protests which would meet a state visit, it was reported today.

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

Under plans being discussed by diplomats, the president would make a stripped-down trip that would not involve staying with the Queen, the London Evening Standard reported.

Downing Street declined to comment on the trip and said its position on the state visit had not changed.

Green postponed introducing the articles of impeachment following the Las Vegas concert shooting. Any move to impeach before those probes are complete, they have said, would be premature.

The US President was originally invited on a full-blown state visit, which would include staying with the Queen in Buckingham Palace.

What we know is that Trump's visit won't have the usual pomp and circumstance associated with state visits, and won't be a guest of the Queen.

A USA diplomatic source told The Telegraph: "There are plenty of chances to get the President over here".

There was also a public backlash, with nearly two million people signing a petition saying the U.S. president's "well documented misogyny and vulgarity" disqualified him from an audience with the Queen.

NBC , which shares a parent company with CNBC, stands by its reporting. "He made a joke, nothing more than that", Sanders said. While Mr Trump is quite comfortable with insult-trading, there's one topic that's clearly off-limits.

Since then the visit has been quietly put on the backburner.

However the speculation came to nothing.

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

"Not accurate. We've not yet scheduled anything for next year", Michael Anton, a spokesman for the National Security Council, told The Hill.
