Donald Trump won't be state guest as United Kingdom visit downgraded

If Trump's trip is a working visit, he will likely stay at the usa ambassador's residence, according to the Standard.

The president may also cut the ribbon on the new USA embassy, the Standard reported.

But May's haste in visiting Trump so early in his term and inviting him for a state visit, which typically involves lavish pageantry and events hosted by Queen Elizabeth, was criticised by some in Britain.

Commons speaker John Bercow later said the president should not be allowed to address the House of Commons during any visit.

However, Prime Minister Theresa May's office declined to comment on the visit, but said its position on the state visit had not changed.

Donald Trump is set to make a scaled-down visit to Britain next year, it has been reported.


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.

American President Donald Trump, whose last name is a synonym for fart in this country, is, to put it very lightly, not without his controversies.

In July there was speculation that Trump would visit his Scottish golf course and then Downing Street after the G20 summit in Hamburg, as part of a European trip that included a big speech in Warsaw.

The visit may be timed to coincide with the opening of the new United States embassy near Battersea Power station, sources said.

'Exact dates for President Trump to visit have not yet been arranged'. But if a meeting with the Queen is the only card Theresa May has to play when trading with Trump, we are in for a long Brexit winter.
