Britons Threaten Protest Ahead Of Trump's UK Visit This Summer

  • Donald Trump is coming to the UK on Friday the 13th and everyone is making the same joke

It had been expected that Trump, who this week hosted French President Emmanuel Macron, would open the USA embassy in London in February, but he claimed to have cancelled the trip because of Nine Elms' "off location" and the poor property deal.

Mr Khan responded to Thursday's announcement of the July visit by saying that in London the President would "experience an open and diverse city that has always chosen unity over division and hope over fear".

Speaking days ago, London Mayor Sadiq Khan said that if Mr Trump does visit, he should expect peaceful protests in the British capital.

There is speculation that, as a result of possible crowd trouble, Trump will meet the Queen or other royals at Windsor Castle, and will join the PM at her Chequers countryside retreat, rather than in central London, The Independent reports.

Speaking to British radio station LBC on Friday, U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson confirmed that Trump would "definitely be coming to London".

Days after he shared racist tweets by the deputy leader of far-right group Britain First, he announced his "working visit" would take place in February of this year to attend the opening of the new United States embassy.


The visit was scheduled Thursday by press officials for the White House and 10 Downing Street, who said that more details about the trip would be forthcoming.

Meanwhile, the offer of a ceremonial state visit remains on the table, according to a Whitehall source.

President Trump is finally going to London after postponing the trip twice.

The announcement comes during a busy day for Trump, in which he praised rapper Kanye West, said he'd take no action against FBI investigator Robert Mueller, and confirmed that Michael Cohen was in fact his lawyer, despite previously claiming not to be that close to him. That idea was quickly rubbished after more than 1.8 million people signed a petition in protest.

Mr Trump will receive a frosty reception from a lot of Londoners, who plan to demonstrate, when he gets here in July.

Johnson tweeted: "FANTASTIC news that President Donald Trump will at last come to Britain on 13 July".
