Trump plans working visit to the United Kingdom in early 2018

Donald Trump denied UK state visits sparks Nigel Farage furious reaction

On Oct. 11, British and USA sources familiar with Trump's invitation to the United Kingdom asserted that diplomats from both countries were considering shifting the president's travel from a state visit to a working visit that would be a part of a broader tour of Europe, the Evening Standard reports.

Rather, the visit "is likely to form part of a tour of several countries by Mr Trump", reports the paper, and he would likely stay with U.S. ambassador Woody Johnson. He would also allegedly miss out on a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II. The offer had been extended, accepted by Trump, and no dates had been arranged.

However he will not sleep at Buckingham Palace as the guest of the Queen, and there will not be a glitzy banquet in his honour.

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of Brexit Britain appearing overly desperate for friends, not least as the offer of an early state visit has been withdrawn", the Standard said in a commentary.

He is due to make a "working visit" which wouldn't feature the pageantry, or a stay with the Queen, that a state visit would include.

From there, the visitor will meet the British prime minister and other prominent politicians at the Houses of Parliament, and may attend a second banquet hosted by London's Lord Mayor.

Theresa May has been slammed for inviting Donald Trump on a State Visit.

Only three US Presidents have made State Visits to the UK.

There had been widespread opposition to Prime Minister Theresa May extending an invitation for a state visit to Trump during her visit to Washington in January, days after he assumed office. Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah, China's President Xi Jinping and US President George Bush are among the guests who have attracted condemnation in previous years.
