US President Donald Trump 'to visit United Kingdom in 2018'

Theresa May and Donald Trump

But Trump confirmed he would be visiting Britain at the G20 in Hamburg, where he met with May, saying he "will be going to London".

The government had initially said the visit would take place later this year, but media has reported the trip could be postponed for various reasons ranging from fears over protests to May's weakened authority after an ill-judged election gamble.

Trump's visit was expected to happen this year, but senior government sources told Sky News that the commander-in-chief will not be in the country until next year.

But the White House hasn't scheduled a state visit in the almost six months since.

The White House has not set any official date for Trump's trip across the pond.

It was reported last week that the President might make an unannounced visit to the United Kingdom at short notice after the G20 summit, possibly to one of his golf courses.




It comes after Mr Trump caused upset in the wake of the London terror attack when he criticised the Mayor of London Sadiq Khan for telling people to remain calm.

Trump, while meeting with May in Germany on Saturday, said he would indeed visit the British capital.

.

Queen Elizabeth, during a speech before Parliament in June, didn't mention Trump in a list of planned state visit - briefly indicating that a trip had been scrapped altogether.

May has been derided for seeking to curry favour with Trump and has come under fire for inviting him for a state visit so soon into his presidency.

When he does make a state visit, the President will reportedly look for the royal treatment.
