Donald Trump will visit the UK on Friday 13 July, White House confirms

The US President will not be getting the full state visit treatment, though.

Donald Trump will pay his first official visit to Britain this summer, the White House has confirmed.

The US President will meet with Prime Minister Theresa May at Number 10, Downing Street for bilateral talks on Friday, 13 July.

His trip will follow the Nato summit in Brussels on 11 and 12 July, and is currently expected to be a working visit. As such, he will not be honoured with an official banquet at Buckingham Palace, nor will he receive a carriage procession up the Mall.

His visit was downgraded to a "working trip" status after May's invitation was criticised heavily by the public and British MPs. In reaction, an online petition preventing his visit was signed by over 1.8 million people.

Then in January 2018, he canceled a trip to London during which he was to open a new US embassy.

He later decided to back out of the February visit, claiming that he did not want to endorse the Obama administration's building of a $1.2 billion dollar embassy after having sold the old embassy in Mayfair for "peanuts".
