Trump to postpone London visit until 2018

Source: ABC News

President Donald Trump will no longer be visiting London in his first year as president, a senior White House official confirmed to ABC News today.

The official cited a "scheduling conflict" as the reason behind the change, and said the White House has gotten in touch with the British government to iron out plans for a visit in 2018.

Downing Street did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

During the president's bilateral meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May at the G-20 summit on Saturday, Trump said he still planned to move forward with the visit but dodged on providing any details about timing.

Official reasons, or toxic? Now or never?

Five and a half month scheduling conflict! Incredible obstacle.

14. Didn't he want to ride in the Queen's gold coach?

I'm sure the Brits would just love that...what an asshole...

I remember when Barack and Michelle visited with the Queen and she seemed so pleased to see them...I think Michelle even hugged her (usually a big no-no with the Queen)...

15. I heard a couple of days ago that the Queen is already on her summer holiday.

So Trump wouldn't be able to ride in the coach.

Bet that's why he's put off the visit.
