Trump to make 'scaled-down visit to United Kingdom next year'

Mr Farage was disappointed by No. 10's decision to downgrade Mr Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom in 2018.

The report said a future state visit had not been ruled out, but no date had been set.

What we know is that Trump's visit won't have the usual pomp and circumstance associated with state visits, and won't be a guest of the Queen.

A government spokesman said: 'Our position on the State Visit has not changed - an offer has been extended and President Trump has accepted.

"Whether you like Trump or you don't like Trump, he's the most powerful man in the world".

At the time, Downing Street maintained there had been "no change" to plans for a state visit.

Before that, however, Amla had picked up his 27th Test century in an exhibition of fluency. After cameos from Temba Bavuma and Faf du Plessis bulked up the total, the hosts declared.

Several objections were made to May's proposal, leading House of Commons speaker John Bercow to declare that the president would not be allowed to address the house amid threats of both labour and Tory party boycotts and mass protests.

Instead of receiving a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace, the revised programme would see Trump embark on a "working" trip as part of a tour of other European states. Any encounter between the two would likely be frosty, after Trump publicly berated the mayor over his response to the London Bridge terror attack.

The Evening Standard reported Wednesday that Trump's visit will be labeled a "working visit" to avoid scrutiny.

The trip had been expected this summer, but the snap election as well as growing controversy over Trump's foreign policy have led to a rethink.

However the speculation came to nothing. Which I'm sure Theresa May is devastated about, seeing as how she seems to want to sort out a post-Brexit trade deal to replace all the trade we probably won't be doing with the EU.
