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

Diplomats are discussing plans for a "working visit" rather than a full-blown state visit as previously planned, reports the Evening Standard.

The Standard also reported that US and British officials are expected to plan for a full state visit for Trump sometime in the future.

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

The visit will not include a stay with the Queen like Barack Obama enjoyed in 2011.

American President Donald Trump, whose last name is a synonym for fart in this country, is, to put it very lightly, not without his controversies.

The fact that the government still doesn't dare to schedule the full state visit is a sign of the strength of opposition to Trump in the UK.

Commons speaker John Bercow later said the president should not be allowed to address the House of Commons during any visit.

On Wednesday, Theresa May's office said she was not aware of plans for a "working visit", and said the position on the state visit had not changed.

Donald Trump is set to make a scaled-down visit to Britain next year, it has been reported.

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.

The spokesman said: 'We have extended an invitation that has been accepted. "The Queen extended an invitation to President Trump to visit the United Kingdom and there is no change to those plans".

Jeremy Shapiro claimed Trump was "exploiting" Britain's romantic view of the special relationship to get a post-Brexit trading deal that benefited America.
