Trump to face mass protests during United Kingdom visit

  • Trump to visit UK in July Sadiq Khan Twitterati fire up promise ‘loud’ protests

But Mr Khan struck a markedly different tone from Boris Johnson, with the Foreign Secretary appearing to adopt the US President's unconventional social media style as he welcomed the "FANTASTIC news".

The controversies of Mr Trump's presidency have already put paid to plans for the procession up the Mall and a state banquet amid warnings of mass protests on the streets. The demonstration, instigated by drag performer Cheddar Gorgeous, isn't a separate protest, but rather, their Facebook page explains, a way to highlight Trump's negative stance on LGBTQ+ issues while partaking in the main demonstration.

There is speculation that, as a result of possible crowd trouble, Trump will meet the Queen or other royals at Windsor Castle, and will join the PM at her Chequers countryside retreat, rather than in central London, The Independent reports.

Mr Johnson assured that Mr Trump will not be deterred by any demonstrations claiming he "knows what he wants to do".

"He'll be in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings before that, then he'll come over, he'll have some meetings here".

"Exactly how those meetings are going to be laid out and who he is going to meet with and all of that is still on the table".




Amnesty International UK's director, Kate Allen, said: "When Donald Trump arrives on these shores, we and thousands of our supporters will very definitely be making our voices heard".

He added: "He is very thick skinned".

We want to send a clear message to Trump and May that racist, sexist, pro-big business politics, created to stoke division within the working class and shore up the profits of the super-rich, will not go unanswered. "But in the end, people are starting to, even now, realise that where he is going is a good direction".

The announcement comes during a busy day for Trump, in which he praised rapper Kanye West, said he'd take no action against FBI investigator Robert Mueller, and confirmed that Michael Cohen was in fact his lawyer, despite previously claiming not to be that close to him.

Trump will visit London for bilateral talks with May. "Further details will be set out in due course", he said.

This isn't the first time Trump has attempted a visit.
