Trump plans state visit to United Kingdom in early June

Trump plans state visit to United Kingdom in early June

"President Trump and Mrs Trump previously joined The Queen for tea at Windsor Castle in July 2018".

Nick Ferrari takes aim at John Bercow over his stance on not allowing Donald Trump to address Parliament ahead of an expected state visit for the US President.

Buckingham Palace is due to announce the visit "shortly", the sources told CNN.

Theresa May said the state visit would provide an "opportunity to strengthen our already close relationship" with the US. Unlike the president's last visit to the United Kingdom the government would not host, but the Queen herself would officially welcome Trump to Britain.

Prime Minister Theresa May extended the offer of a state visit to Mr Trump early in his presidency when she met the USA leader for the first time in the White House in January 2017.

The paper reported these remarks of an "official" who said: "Logistically, it would make sense if the president attends a state visit [in the UK] in June because he's planning to be in France for the D-Day anniversary". It follows state visits by President George W. Bush in November of 2003 and President Barack Obama in May of 2011.

After being delayed several times, Trump's four-day visit a year ago was met with large protests in London and throughout the country.

While in the United Kingdom, the president and first lady will attend a ceremony in Portsmouth to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day at one of the primary embarkation sites for the Allied operation that led to the liberation of Europe during World War II, according to the White House.

Last year, anti-Trump demonstrations included several organized marches by varying groups, most notably a giant balloon depicting the president as an angry, screaming orange baby in a diaper, clutching a cellphone with Twitter on the screen dubbed, "Trump Baby".
