President Trump in Britain for “GREATest visit ever”
President Trump will be in the UK for a working visit on Friday July 13
It's been announced that the US President Donald Trump will be visiting the UK on Friday July 13 as part of a working visit.
The President will meet with UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who said that she was "looking forward to welcoming President Trump to the United Kingdom for a working visit on July 13". Whilst not the full State visit which was initially proposed, BBC North America Editor Jon Sopel has suggested that, in his understanding, the President will meet the Queen "either at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle", the latter being the venue of the Royal Wedding in May.
Various reactions have already surfaced on Twitter to the announced visit, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson who claimed it would be the "GREATest visit ever." Sir Kim Darroch, the UK Ambassador to the USA, said that he was "Delighted" that President Trump will visit the UK, whilst the US Ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, has said "It's all systems go!".

If he comes to London, President Trump will experience an open and diverse city that has always chosen unity over division and hope over fear. He will also no doubt see that Londoners hold their liberal values of freedom of speech very dear.— Sadiq Khan (@SadiqKhan) April 26, 2018
