Donald Trump 'set for June state visit to UK'

Source: BBC

Buckingham Palace is expected to announce on Tuesday that US President Donald Trump will make a state visit to the UK in early June.

The president was promised the visit by Prime Minister Theresa May after he was elected in 2016 - but no date was set.

Downing Street did not comment on the matter when contacted by the BBC.

Once the location and dates are confirmed, the government, the visiting government and the royal household will agree on a detailed schedule.

3. An invitation that will only serve ...

... to show that our "pResident" is not welcome among decent people, as the protestors will prove - yet again.

4. Trump will want the event staged.

I expect that he will have many requirements and stipulations to show him in the most favorable circumstances.

9. MPs campaign to have Donald Trump's UK state visit cancelled


Activists say Trump’s three-day visit from 3 June will prompt ‘huge mobilisation’

Theresa May has been criticised for allowing Donald Trump to make a state visit in June for D-day commemorations, with MPs orchestrating a campaign to stop the US president addressing parliament.

Labour said it “beggars belief” that the government is offering the red-carpet treatment to Trump given his attacks on British and American values. Backbenchers began gathering signatures for a petition aiming to force the cancellation of the trip.

The three-day trip starting on 3 June was confirmed by Buckingham Palace and the White House on Tuesday. The initial invitation was extended soon after Trump took office but a planned state visit in 2018, with all its pomp and ceremony, was downgraded to an official visit amid security concerns.

This time, Trump is likely to dine with the Queen, attend discussions with May in Downing Street and join an event in Portsmouth to mark the D-day landings.

10. Another disaster

waiting to happen.

A crass, socially inept idiot walks into the bastion of pomp and protocol. What could possibly go wrong?

11. Isn't Theresa May unpopular enough?

Does she really have to go out in flames by hosting a Trump visit?

And who is arranging dinner w/ the Queen? Is that a joke?

I would think at her age she would have earned the right to tell them where to go. After the last disastrous visit, I am sure the last thing she wants is to spend one precious second in the presence of that odious, vulgar pig.

12. Remember how warmly the queen welcomed the Obamas?

IIRC, Michelle got howls from pukes when she barely touched the Queen's shoulder. Q E just loved both of them!
