The UK had already despised Trump before he decided to launch a Twitter assault on the Mayor of London during a deadly terrorist attack. One can only imagine how much more they detest him now.
His scheduled summer visit to England has officially been canceled. Donald came up with a sneaky plan to arrive unnoticed; unfortunately, the plan leaked to the English press.
Trump previously requested for England to guarantee no mass protests against him before his arrival. He also wanted to ride in the golden carriage, which would have been a security nightmare.
Donald’s staff had planned for him to quietly hop over to London during his trip to Europe for the G20 meeting. Of course, Trump also wanted to visit his golf course in Scotland.
Trump’s staff blew his cover by warning British officials that they would only be given 24-hour advance notice of the president’s arrival.
via The Guardian:
Whitehall sources confirmed the government had been warned that the president could visit Turnberry, one of his two golf resorts in Scotland, during his trip to Europe, between attending the G20 summit in Hamburg and joining celebrations for Bastille Day in France on 14 July.
Trump would be expected to come to Downing Street to meet the prime minister for informal talks as part of any such visit, though final confirmation would be likely to be given with just 24 hours’ notice to minimise the risk of disruption.
Once the news leaked, protesters promised to be there waiting for him despite the short notice.
The White House responded:
A spokeswoman for the US president said on Monday that no trip was imminent, amid mounting speculation that Trump was planning to make an unofficial visit to the UK on his way to or from the G20 summit in Hamburg this week.
“While we look forward to visiting the UK, it will not happen in the next two weeks,” the spokeswoman said.
Trump does have his first private meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the G20 summit to look forward to.
