The U.K. government said it was “not aware” of any plans for Donald Trump to visit the country in the next few weeks amid reports that the U.S. president could drop in to see the British prime minister while he is in Europe. Trump might want to see Theresa May while on an unscheduled stop to one of his Scottish golf courses, according to the Sunday Times, with the British newspaper suggesting confirmation would come less than 24 hours before the visit to avoid protests.
The U.S. president is traveling across the Atlantic to attend France’s Bastille Day celebrations on July 14. But the prime minister’s official spokesperson said: “I am not aware of any plans for the president to visit the U.K. in the next few weeks.” May extended an invitation for a state visit to the U.K. to the President Trump during her visit to Washington — but a date has still not been confirmed.
Many took notice last month when Queen Elizabeth broke tradition and didn’t mention Trump’s upcoming visit during her annual speech to the nation.
