United Kingdom paper: Trump trip won't be a state visit

Donald Trump and Theresa May

Donald Trump will visit Britain early next year but it will not be a State Visit and he will not stay with the Queen, it emerged today.

Trump may be allowed cut the ribbon on the brand new usa embassy which is close to completion at Nine Elms, near Battersea Power Station.

He continued: "What I'm saying is: is this not the biggest insult to a democratically elected USA president?"

The Guardian newspaper reported in June that Trump's state visit had been postponed indefinitely after he told May during a phone conversation that he did not want to come if there were going to be large-scale protests.

Following protests and objections, including from Commons speaker John Bercow, the honour, which is usually reserved for a leader's second term, was suspended but is still expected to take place at a later date.

While British and USA sources told the Evening Standard that the full state visit would still go ahead at some point, the stripped down version, which was expected to be far less controversial than a royal welcome, would take place in early 2018.

British Prime Minister Theresa May stirred up anger in Parliament when she earlier this year tried to arrange a state visit for Trump in the summer.

In January May visited the White House and offered Trump a state visit as a guest of the Queen: a move interpreted as a signal of the continuing "special relationship" between the two countries.

In July there was speculation that Trump would visit his Scottish golf course and then Downing Street after the G20 summit in Hamburg, as part of a European trip that included a big speech in Warsaw. This was still the position on Wednesday.

The newspaper said its view was that "any United States president is welcome in London".
