Donald Trump has scrapped plans to visit Britain next month,

The US President was expected to make his first trip to the UK since entering office, but Government officials have been told he has gone cold on the idea.

No new date has been offered, raising the prospect of a major diplomatic snub. One senior source suggested Mr Trump – who was expected to officially open the new US embassy in London – cancelled because he was unhappy about the arrangements and the scale of the visit.

Mr Trump has previously expressed concern about the likelihood of mass protests. Last year he told Mrs May he did not want to go ahead with a visit until the British public supported it.

The prospect of mass protests were raised last month after Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn urged his followers to turn out in force if Mr Trump visited the UK to send him a ‘clear message’. More than a million people signed a petition last year calling for the state visit to be cancelled.

3. So far, I'm just seeing this reported by the tabloids (Daily Mail, Sun, Mirror)

That's not to say it isn't true. The Daily Mail may be a gossip rag but it does, on occasion, get some pretty amazing scoops.

Personally, I would have been/will be shocked if he ever does go to Britain, for a state or working visit. The protests his presence would trigger would be pretty epic.
