Donald Trump to Visit UK Next Year: Report

Donald Trump to Visit UK Next Year: Report
Tue Jul 11, 2017 14:28:56

US President Donald Trump has postponed his much-anticipated trip to the UK until next year, after refusing to visit the country due to overwhelming protests, a new report claims.

The government of Prime Minister Theresa May was exploring its options to coordinate the visit with the White House, BBC reported Tuesday.

The news came on the heels of widespread rumors that Trump was going to “sneak” into the UK during his recent stay in Germany to attend the G20 summit. The rumor was proven to be false.

May extended Queen Elizabeth II’s invitation to Trump during a visit to the White House only a week after the Republican president's January 20 inauguration.

The visit request was met with backlash from British people and politicians alike.

Besides holding large demonstrations across the UK, hundreds of thousands of Britons signed an online petition back then that called on the UK Parliament to ban Trump from visiting the country.

UK Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn called Trump a “threat” to the world and said he should not be allowed in to the UK because of his “reckless” policies, specifically his ill-fated visa ban against people from several Muslim countries.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan also joined the protests against the visit after Trump’s controversial response to London terrorist attacks, which involved direct criticism of the way the city was run.
