Donald Trump to visit UK later this year

Donald Trump has resolved to visit the UK by the end of this year

Donald Trump is set to visit the UK by the end of 2018 after Downing Street officials said officials are working on plans.

A No.10 source said Trump and his British counterpart Theresa May have asked officials to work on “finalising the details of a visit by the President to the UK later this year”.

The resolution was reached at the end of May's bilateral meeting with Trump at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The visit is likely to be hugely controversial, with a number of organisations having already been set up to oppose it, along with senior politicians such as Jeremy Corbyn and Diane Abbott.

Trump was due to visit the UK early this year but the Republican billionaire cancelled the engagement in mid-January, after huge protests.

The entertainment mogul said he was cancelling his visit because "I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for “peanuts,” only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars.

"Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!"

The campaign group Stop Trump has already published a defiant tweet in response to the news, warning the US President to expect "huge opposition on the streets."
