Donald Trump WILL visit United Kingdom within months as trip finally confirmed

Queen Elizabeth II and The Duke And Duchess Of Cambridge Visit The East Midlands

Donald Trump will visit Britain early next year, but it will be a "working visit" rather than a state visit, it has been reported.

Instead of the traditional "special relationship" tour, it is likely to form part of a trip to several countries.

Penny called Nigel Farage after it was reported that the US President is going to make a scaled-down visit to the United Kingdom next year.

Downing Street declined to comment but has said that its position has not changed since the offer was extended and accepted.

Theresa May's official spokesman said it remained the government's intention that Mr Trump will have a state visit.

Almost 200 MPs signed an early motion opposing Mr Trump addressing both houses of Parliament, with Speaker John Bercow voicing his opposition to his visit during a session in the House of Commons.

Trump's working visit will focus on global security discussions, according to the Evening Standard.

Hundreds of thousands of people had signed a petition against the plan.

Over the summer The Guardian reported that Trump told May in a phone call he wanted to put the trip on hold until the British public supported it.

A USA diplomatic source told The Telegraph: "There are plenty of chances to get the President over here".

Broadcasting from New York, Nigel said: "I do not accept the view and someone's got to come on to convince me, I don't accept the view that we shouldn't have him in this country and talk about the really important things that matter to both of us". The offer had been extended, accepted by Mr Trump, and no dates had been arranged.
