Donald Trump won't get state visit pomp

Donald Trump won't get state visit pomp”

"Exact dates for President Trump to visit have not yet been arranged", a Downing Street spokesperson said.

Mr Trump's visit was first postponed because of mass protest threats at his arrival in the UK.

When diplomats are visiting as part of a state visit, they typically stay at Buckingham Palace.

US President Donald Trump will make a working visit to Britain in early 2018, with a full state visit to follow later at an unspecified date, the London Evening Standard newspaper reported on Wednesday.

Theresa May's decision to offer Trump a State Visit so soon into his presidency was widely questioned; his predecessor Barack Obama was received by the Queen two and a half years into his first term.

The Foreign Office said a State Visit, which is seen by MPs as being on indefinite hold, would go ahead at some stage.

A USA senior diplomat who requested anonymity told The Telegraph that Trump would possibly spend his alleged working trip to the United Kingdom to help open a new American embassy in London.

"Our position on the state visit has not changed? an offer has been extended and President Trump has accepted".

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.

The notion of Trump meeting with the Queen immediately prompted a petition to block the visit.

Her Majesty usually lists all formal visits for the coming year, but pointedly did not include the US President's trip.

Jeremy Shapiro claimed Trump was "exploiting" Britain's romantic view of the special relationship to get a post-Brexit trading deal that benefited America.
