Unconfirmed dates for President Trump’s visit to the UK

According to The Sun, President Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May decided, during a phone call two weeks ago, that the state visit of the United States President and his wife, First Lady Melania will provisionally take place from 5-8 October 2017. Neither Buckingham Palace nor the White House have provided confirmation regarding the visit.

Having President Trump visit during the autumn would give him the opportunity to visit The Queen at Balmoral as she holidays there. The 45th President has also requested that Boris Johnson gives him a guided tour of Churchill’s War Rooms during his visit.

The potentiality of having President Trump visit the United Kingdom was met with numerous protests from all around the country. From London to Newcastle, people gathered to make their voices heard. Many MPs also expressed their concerns, and the matter was even debated in Parliament when more than one million signatures of outraged UK citizens were submitted. Having the state visit in October would ensure that President Trump would avoid any encounters with MPs against his visit.

Usually, the outspoken President doesn’t flinch when it comes to controversy. His first month in office has been fraught with it, especially relating to his Executive Order banning the entry of people from seven predominately Muslim countries in the Middle East into the United States.

A senior government source told The Sun: “Trump still really wants to come this year, but he wants the heat to die down a bit first.

“The White House watches what happens over here surprisingly closely, and they don’t want to create a scene for our sake either.”

No details have been released from either side of the pond about the impending visit. Royal Central will keep a close watch on this story, and it will be updated as more information becomes available.
