Donald Trump to visit UK in July, Sky sources say

US President Donald Trump will visit the UK in mid-July, according to Sky sources.

Sky's senior political correspondent Beth Rigby revealed that a full announcement is expected in the next day or so.

Mr Trump was due to open the US Embassy in London in February but cancelled the trip saying the building was too expensive and tweeting that he was not a "big fan" of the decision to move its location.

It has been reported that he told Prime Minister Theresa May at the World Economic Forum in Davos earlier this year that he would visit the UK this summer.

It would be the politician's first trip to this country since he was elected in November 2016.

The controversies of Mr Trump's presidency have already put paid to plans for the procession up the Mall and a state banquet amid warnings of mass protests on the streets.

More than 1.8 million Britons signed a petition demanding that the President be prevented from making a state visit to the UK.

Mr Trump is currently hosting French President Emmanuel Macron in Washington DC where he has hailed the "great relationship" between the US and France.
Edit: Official Confirmation that the visit will occur from July 13th

It is a bad idea imo too soon and there are going to be mass protests , which wont do anything for UK/US relations which already seem to have been ironically taken over by France.

The man has been president since the beginning of 2017. By staging protests in order to intentionally prevent a democratically elected head of state from visiting a country, they're not only showing themselves to be incredibly petty and inconsiderate: they're also showing themselves to be anti-democratic.

A lot of people would say, on %, that he isn't welcome. I don't generally force my company places it isn't welcome (But i'm much classier than DT)

The right to protest against the government is literally the most important part of a functioning democracy.

What does it actually achieve, though? Apart from a public disturbance? It's no better than a fascistic street march in that regard.

Protests rarely achieve much, but that doesn't make them "anti-democratic", as you posited.
