Donald Trump WILL visit United Kingdom within months as trip finally confirmed

Donald Trump 'will visit the UK in early 2018 but will not meet the Queen'

Theresa May offered the recently inaugurated president a State Visit in January

Donald Trump will visit Britain early next year, but it will be a "working visit" rather than a state visit, it has been reported.

The state visit, including a banquet at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle was due to take place this Autumn but now appears to be postponed indefinitely.

Sources have told the Evening Standard that no date has yet been fixed but the working visit is planned for early in 2018.

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. Instead of red carpet treatment, Trump will likely include it during a tour of several countries.

At the time, Downing Street maintained there had been "no change" to plans for a state visit.

The Foreign Office said that the state visit would go ahead eventually, but "Our position on the State Visit has not changed - an offer has been extended and President Trump has accepted".

But the invitation prompted a huge backlash as leading politicians said Mr Trump should not be granted the honour because of his controversial policies on immigration and terrorism.

Such a move would come in the wake of controversy generated by Prime Minister Theresa May's decision to invite Mr Trump to make a full state visit. The offer had been extended, accepted by Mr Trump, and no dates had been arranged.

Mr Trump asked the PM to delay the invitation because he did not want his visit to be interrupted by mass protests.
