White House Confirms Donald Trump Visit to France and England in June

Donald Trump will hold talks with Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street during the visit

This time, though, the visit is timed to coincide with D-Day 75 celebrations, set to take place in both the United Kingdom, where the joined Allied invasion that turned the tide of the war against Nazi Germany in Europe was planned and launched, and in Normandy, France, the site of the invasion and the location of several Allied cemeteries.

President Trump will travel to the United Kingdom and France in June to mark the anniversary of the D-Day landings, the White House announced Tuesday.

Confirmation of the visit is likely to reignite debate over Queen Elizabeth's role in welcoming Trump.

And in Scotland, people showed their displeasure, both in Edinburgh and at Turnberry. "We made a conscious decision not to invite him".

It said 10,000 officers from across the country were needed to cover the occasion.

British anti-Trump campaign groups pledged to mobilise in "huge numbers" to protest against the visiting president.

When Trump in January past year said he had scrapped his visit to the British capital because he didn't want to open the new U.S. embassy, Khan suggested the real reason was because he wouldn't be welcome. When the trip was first mooted, the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow, said he would block any opportunity for President Trump to address Parliament in Westminster Hall. "He spoke to the people and what they wanted to hear", she said.

Trump will also meet with Macron.

Arya Stark's Age in Season 8
The second episode in the final season of the insanely popular TV show, Game of Thrones , packed a bunch of surprises for fans. And it turns out Williams was caught off guard when reading the script, even dismissing her Arya Stark sex scene as a prank.

But speculation is growing that Mr Trump will also spend at least part of his visit in Scotland, where he owns two golf courses and has family links through his late mother, Mary, who was born on the Isle of Lewis.

Trump was also left largely unperturbed by the protest that took place during his last visit.

Major refurbishment is now taking place at Buckingham Palace meaning there is not enough space for Trump's staff, it is claimed.

What is a state visit?

Former US president Obama did just this during one of his visits, staying in a plush suite at Her Maj's palace.

Buckingham Palace formally announced the state visit as the Queen is the president's host, and it is understood the monarch's official London home will be the venue for the visit and where the traditional state banquet will be held for Mr Trump and his wife Melania. They have political purposes and are used to further national interests.

Nearly 1.9 million Britons signed a petition in 2017 saying he should not be given a state visit - a pomp-laden affair involving a carriage trip through London and a banquet at Buckingham Palace.
