According to Sky News at least - they seem to have a scoop >>> https://news.sky.com/story/donald-trump-to-visit-uk-in-july-sky-sources-say-11346045

How this will go is anyone's guess...

It could be great although I somehow can't see Theresa & Donald doing an Emmanuel & Donald... but you never know... strange things happen these days...

Or it could be a disaster... time will tell...

Not the full state visit apparently... so the pomp and ceremony won't be on show to the same extent as it was in Paris...

Will there be major protests and upheaval or will Blighty step into line nervous about future Anglo/American relations post-Brexit and just go with the flow etc...?

Popcorn sales may well experience a bounce...

Or perhaps not?

Chances are it will all be very dull and short and basically a test visit to gauge how a state visit might go and whether everyone is up for it...

Reaction in the next few days will probably give us a clue...

I'm sure they'll be civil.

Oh dear, will (beach ready) Khan of londonistan call the great unwashed out to protest and waste the mets time? Time that could be used to pursue wrong thinkers in the home of free speech???? Tricky times ahead for sure to be sure.

If it isn't a disaster I'm sure there will be a second visit and that it will probably be a state visit full of pomp and ceremony.

Trump would love that and if things go badly re: Brexit the Brits might choose to indulge him in order to smooth any Anglo/American trade deal etc.

And if he's in office for the full 8 years there may be a few more visits too...

Could they squeeze in a trip to the north around the 12th ? He'd feel at home.

Great to see that the British have recovered their good sense.

They've seen little Emmanuel act like Donnie's starstruck younger brother and they want in on the action.

They seem to be worried about the Macron Trump 'bromance' alright... judging by the amount of coverage and analysis they've given it in recent days... accompanied by a fair bit of fretting over their 'special relationship' with America and whether it's under threat...
