REPORT: US Drops Trump’s January Visit To Britain

The Telegraph reports:

US diplomats have dropped plans for Donald Trump to conduct a visit to Britain in January amid a war of words between the two countries’ leaders. Mr Trump, the US president, had been penciled in for a ‘working visit’ in the first month of 2018 to formally open America’s new London embassy.

The trip, a scaled down version of a state visit with no meeting with the Queen, was intended to allow Mr Trump to come to the UK while avoiding the mass protests a full state visit would likely trigger.

However, The Telegraph can reveal that the trip has been pushed into the long grass, with no new date in the diary picked. A senior US diplomat said: “The idea of a visit has obviously been floated, but not December and not January. I would not expect a Trump visit in January.”

    But how does the Theresa May he tweet-assaulted (who is not the British PM, just someone with the same name) feel about it? I think she should have a say in it at this point…

    • Tread

      I actually wish he would go. Brits have no problem protesting the fuck out of assholes.

      • Reality.Bites

        Except the UK government wouldn’t allow them to happen anywhere near Trump, which in turn would make the people angry at May. So she can’t have him there period.

        She’s not Ted Cruz. She’s not going to be insulted and still work a phone bank for him.

      • ChrisMorley

        True it could be fun, but there’s a significant risk of rioting.

    • ChrisMorley

      All the official indications are that tRump will not now be getting any invite for the foreseeable future.
      It was all a mad fervid dream of PM Theresa May to bag a Bigly Trade Deal for Brexit from bargain bins donnie and perhaps she will now come to her senses.

      • ospalh

        Hmm?
        I had to look it up, but the standard form seems to be “kick into the long grass”, and it seems to be a football (rugby or soccer) reference. When you kick the ball over the sideline (touch line), it takes a while to get it back.
        So it means “delay things on purpose”.

      • David L. Caster

        In the rough.

        • clay

          Worse than in the rough.

          • David L. Caster

            Out of bounds then. The ball is technically out of play.

      • Willys41

        “In the long grass” means you are not in the neatly manicured short grass of the fairway located between tee and putting green (where the hole is). It’s a slang term so you could be in the rough, the weeds, or the woods, depending on how it’s used. However, that doesn’t necessarily mean the ball is not playable.

    • Won’t he just drop a new ball on the fairway and hope you didn’t notice? I don’t know what that means in the context of this metaphor, but… I’m confused.

      • Nowhereman

        Rumor has it that he always takes a spare ball or two with him when he hits it into the rough. That way he can just toss it out wherever he wants to.

      • The New Paige Turner™

        He has pissed off Australia too. We have been to every war with the USA as an ally.

        We are just waiting him out.

          • The New Paige Turner™

            We want our President back please. We were happy with that one.

            This fight with the UK PM is so undignified.

            Can you imagine Churchill putting up with this from Roosevelt or Truman?
            Thatcher having to tell Ronald Reagan that he was unwelcome in the UK?

            Whilst there has been some testing times during the UK/USA relationship it has never been at this point in modern times.

            Even the infamous meeting of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth to President Roosevelt where he was said to have embarrassed them by making them eat hot dogs pales into insignificance compared to this monstrosity.

          • Nowhereman

            I don’t think it’s been this frosty since 1812!

        • Nowhereman

          We appreciate that! We should put up a sign. “We are suffering technical difficulties and are working on the problem and hope to be back to normal soon.” I’m 66 and have never ever seen anything like this. Watergate was just a third rate burglary compared to this.

      • Nowhereman

        Par for the course–that fits right in with all the golf and sports metaphors flying around here.
        And your point is well taken. Don’t republicans feel even a little tingle at the nape of their necks that our so-called president gravitates towards some of the worst dictators and oppressive regimes on the planet? My hair’s been on fire since the campaign when he started saying things about wouldn’t it be nice if Putin liked Donald.

    • JackFknTwist

      Yes, the visit would never happen . The members of Parliament had already decided to oppose the visit, the Speaker of the House had prohibited him from speaking there, the Queen had already given her lip curled disdain, and riots would have shut down London.

      Visit ? What visit.
      Yeah, he quit before he was cancelled.

      i hope you are right about the wedding ! that would be so great.

      • Steve Smith

        Theresa May, in her unseemly haste to kiss Trump’s arse, forgot that she really ought to consult parliament before handing out the invitations. She occasionally forgets that the office of Prime Minister is not in fact the same as Head of State.

        • JackFknTwist

          i think that T. May is clueless.
          To actually get into bed with the DUP was signing up to an AltRight agenda.
          Now the evangelical DUP will try to bring down the UK/EU negotiations , thereby harming the whole UK, just for their deluded claim of ‘loyalty to the crown’.

          The irony is lost on them.
          But if May knew any history she would know that her dalliance with the DUP will end in tears…..if not in explosions along the EU / UK border in Ireland.

          • Steve Smith

            Agreed. But she relies on the DUP vote to push through the final bill on EU withdrawal. So, without the DUP, she will lose that vote, and without an agreement over the future status of Northern Ireland, she will have no withdrawal agreement and will lose that vote, as the final deal now has to have parliamentary approval. Its like watching an inevitable car crash in slow motion.

          • JackFknTwist

            Let her go to the country; either they want a deal or they capitulate to the DUP.

            A general election on the European issue would sort out May and the Tories pretty quickly.

        • cleos_mom

          I understand but of course plenty of us here would be happy to trade heads of state at this point.

    • Nowhereman

      That will REALLY piss him off! It will be even better if they also invite Hillary and Bill Clinton.

    Heh…

    Origin:
    “Kick it into the long grass” is golf-derived, essentially describing a form of cheating: a player whose ball lands in the rough so as to be unplayable without adding multiple strokes to the hole can cheat by kicking the ball out-of-bounds into the really long grass and take a one-stroke penalty for a lost ball.

    The metaphor here would be that the ticklish issue gets lost, and we play with a different issue altogether (the new ball). (LanguageLog)

    So basically, ignore the orange fucker.

    Ohmigod I googled “explain to me the current state of the world,” and look what came up:

    And a malfunctioning plane doesn’t get a chance to come to fruition and fulfill its duty and destiny. Thanks, US diplomats.

    • clay

      I blame Gen. Kelly, silently working to make sure Donny, Jared, and Junior aren’t on a trans-Atlantic flight together, again, until Mueller’s done.

      • HZ81

        Oh, that will be one glorious flight.

    I would not allow that asshole to enter my country if I were them.

  • Lumpy Gaga

    Did you know we were in the middle of a National critical IV solution shortage?

    You do now.

    • Tread

      Is there a story about this?

      • Lumpy Gaga

        The memo only mentioned the terribly inconvenient hurricanes of climate aggression, so my first guess was “Puerto Rico”, and I see it may have been a good call.

        Apparently, we can’t even say the island’s name anymore in polite company. I see why the SJ mayor is doing a goodwill tour.

    • m_lp_ql_m

      Four solution?

      • Lumpy Gaga

        eye-vee.

        Intravenous solutions used in medical procedures.

        Of course, since Lux Interior’s death, there’s been a critical national shortage of Ivy Rorschach, but that’s another story.

        • LosFelizGuy

          I’m still waiting for Lux to come back from the dead and start making music again!

            I once got to buy the Cramps dinner while on the road in Philly.

            It justifies my existence on this planet.

            There is no greater brush with greatness (except for that time I sat on Steve Vai’s hand at a Madonna concert.)*

            *That would be Steve Vai, legendary guitar player.

          • LosFelizGuy

            I ran into them one morning at a diner in Glendale once. When I first walked in I just thought they looked familiar (they were wearing normie clothes). When I realized it was them I almost squealed! This is the oldest known photo of them froma few months after they first met… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6ecc236ce930d31c96faa703adbdb0d260f706351149abf9965bc1660de5c88b.jpg

    • halfwaythere

      Puerto Rico housed a lot of the manufacturing of IV fluids.

      • Lumpy Gaga

        You know, I was gonna guess PR because of their Pharma history…. but apparently talking about their crisis would remind people of just one reason why they matter (to meeeeeee….) and would be too controversial for the corporate memo I saw.

    • Michael White

      Not just IV bag, but medications and artificial joints. There is some concern that joint replacements might have to be postponed because they are not able to make enough to keep up.

    • William

      Pharmaceutical shortages are common near the end of the year. January brings higher prices.

  • James

    Yeah, because several MPs today said he should be arrested for inciting racial hatred if he sets foot in the country.

    • boatboy_srq

      THAT event should be televised and holographed for posterity.

  • GanymedeRenard

    Yeah. “Time magazine wanted to name me person of the year, but I declined. Liz wanted me to pay her a visit in January at that Buckingham dump, but I said maybe some other time.”

    • AmeriCanadian

      I’m beginning to see a pattern.

      • GanymedeRenard

        Oh, I’m sure you (and the rest of the sane people) are NOT beginning to see a pattern, but only confirming it.

  • katkelly57

    Dropping out….his version of saving face, when in fact no one over there really wanted to see his fugly mug.

      How I wish it was so easy to get rid of him here.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      It’s for headlines. He’s gotta keep that orange ass in the public eye.

    • Halou

      1. Got to get along well with Russia.
      2. Distraction, distraction, distraction.
      3. Theresa May gave him backtalk.
      4. What’s more, Theresa May is a woman.

  • boatboy_srq

    “Dropped from the calendar” sounds so much better than admitting he was cordially disinvited.

    Lord Dampnut does not get told “no”.

  • PR

    Dolt45 would probably fart in front of the Queen.

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      and then try to blame her.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Britain should flat out declare him persona non grata and permit only the Secretary of State or other diplomats to confer with the UK parliament and government. He’s not worthy of any kind of accolade or recognition and the nations of the world should start making it clear that, like New York High Society, he’s neither welcome nor will he be tolerated. He is a low, declassé man and it’s time he was treated as such. Hell, many homeless people and those he looks down on have more class, style, grace and charm than he ever will. Be done with him.

    • Strepsi

      they pretty much have, this is the THIRD cancellation. And the mayor of London – who Trump insulted in a Tweet during a terror attack! – has overtly said he’s not welcome in the capital.

      • Reality.Bites

        The mayor of London does not speak for the government.

        No, they really should NOT declare him persona non grata. Doing so would be setting a permanent and dangerous diplomatic precedent.

      • Falconlights

        Well, so much for his royal carriage ride. Face it Donnie, moat of the world hates you

  • Will Parkinson

    A working visit… So they opened a new golf course?

  • Elaygee

    Too bad, I was looking forward to the 2 or 3 million Brits marching in protest.

    • William

      The mass moonings would have caused blindness.

  • DaddyRay
  • Yeah, the “U.S.” pushed the date. [eye roll]

  • Treant

    That’s probably a good idea. The UK only contains so many tons of rotten vegetables and you wouldn’t want them using them all up at once.

  • William

    Do not pass Go. Do not get golden carriage ride. Go directly to jail.

  • kaydenpat

    Good. He should go visit his buddies in Russia to get more marching orders.

    • Halou

      He can damn well stay there!

      • Falconlights

        Wish Airforce One and Two would drop Pence and him off at the Moscow Airport and promptly take off.

        • Halou

          Is that with or without landing first?

          • Falconlights

            Either works for me, but since the government is on a cost cutting spree, I don’t see why good aviation fuel should be wasted on a landing and take-off.

          • Falconlights

            Either works for me, but since the government is on a cost-cutting spree, I see no reason to waste aviation fuel on a landing or take off.

  • Paula

    So, when will we be at war with England again?

    • William

      Watch out, they fired a volley of tea and crumpets!

      • coram nobis

        They didn’t want another clash, you remember, Boyz n the Hood.

  • JCF

    I just heard the opposite from Lester Holt. WTF is going on, really?

    • Tor

      Just wait for his morning Tweets. The opposite will be true.

  • With better planning, the headline could have read, “UK Drops Trump’s January Visit To Britain”.

  • BartmanLA

    GOOD FOR ENGLAND! We know Trump will spin this as HIS choice to drop the trip but we all know that England told Trump not to come, no one wants to see him! And I don’t blame them one little bit!

    • 2guysnamedjoe

      Queen Theresabeth begged me to come to England. Buy I said no gold carriage, no deal.

    • Halou

      It is a shame, really, that the relationship with one of America’s closest allies has come to this. Mutual recriminations and a parting of ways.

  • Andymac3

    From no state visit with Queen and Gold carriage
    to don’t call us, we’ll call you.
    and now, no invite to the Royal wedding either
    Sad!

  • sword

    Trump will secretly fly to Scotland to “examine” his golf courses. Then he will return to D.C. and declare that Great Britain gave him the biggliest welcome since D-Day!

  • johncAtl

    Theresa May should have tweeted … “Hey Donnie, let us know if you’ll be in the UK sometime.”

  • Mickey Bitsko

    Before Trump, the idea that an American president would not be attending the opening of a new US embassy in London would’ve been unimaginable. He is such an effing disgrace.

  • Halou

    Good riddance to bad rubbish.

  • DumbHairyApe

    “You didn’t dump me because I dumped you!”

  • DumbHairyApe

    Might be hard, anyway, to visit the UK from a federal prison.

  • Mike C

    The real story, of course: “I could just do it myself but I’ll allow you the small dignity of saying you cancelled your trip. Goodnight Donald.” ::CLICK::

  • NMNative

    Parliament wants to disinvite him, so, he canceled first. Like saying I quit before your boss fires you. Pathetic, miserable little orange turd.

  • coram nobis

    “We told that Theresa May woman to change the locks on the palace. One does not want that vulgar American tourist and his Slovenian trollop to visit Us after his latest gaucheries. Even Charlie and Vanilla want nothing to do with him.”

    Into the long grass?

    Into the graveyard, I hope!

    Don’t let the evil bastard pollute British soil, Britain!

  • JackFknTwist

    Ahhh, no gold coach, no throne with the Queen, no speech or visit to the House of Commons…..
    Poor Donny, a visit without all the trappings and without the gold…….so he has cancelled.

    Everyone hates you, Trump/turd,

  • dcurlee

    Well this will give him more golfing time

  • Itsatarp

    Two takes:
    1 – They don’t want him there. State visit or not his presence will results in protests, which could turn violent now that Britain First is in the mix. No politician or public figure wants to be seen with him.
    2 – He doesn’t want to go. He knows there will be protests, he knows he will get bad press. He knows this visit is really slumming, the equivalent of cutting a ribbon at a shopping mall followed with a sparsely attended reception. Of course he would NEVER admit any of this.

  • SilasMarner

    Well, if his plan is to alienate all our friends and become an isolationist state, he’s doing a pretty good job.

  • Alexander Stallwitz
  • Gregory In Seattle

    An American president has to be VERY unpopular for even the Brits not to like you.

  • Nowhereman

    I’m glad to see this. Trump should be confined to the White House and his golf courses. I’d like to see Twitter shut him down, too. And don’t let him “honor” any more of our heroes. Trump just uses these opportunities to insult them and embarrass the rest of us.

  • FelineMama

    Great Britain just called. YOU’RE FIRED!!
