Surprise! Donald Trump could make an unexpected visit to Britain this month
The PM extended the invitation to the US President during a trip to Washington in January but the date has never been announced. May, said, "I am not aware of any plans for the president to visit the U.K.in the next few weeks".
Mr Trump is crossing the Atlantic later this week for visits to Poland, followed by the G20 summit in Germany - where he will also have a meeting with Angela Merkel.
A spokesman for Prime Minister Theresa May said Monday the United Kingdom government was not aware of any plans for Trump's potential visit, and declined to comment on whether May would meet with Trump if he makes a surprise stop in London.
Some speculate that Trump may be using his four-day window to visit his golf course in Scotland.
It comes after Downing Street was unsure if he was making a visit in July, saying earlier simply that it is not aware of any plans. "RT if you're willing to commit to protesting this bigot at short notice".
The Times (UK) reported, "Senior government officials say they expect the American president to make an unscheduled stop at his Aberdeenshire golf course as part of his trip to Europe to attend France's Bastille Day celebrations on July 14".
The petition attracted more than 1.8 million signatures while a separate one backing Mr Trump's state visit received 317,542 signatures. "Let's take to the street in great number - and do ourselves proud by showing that Britain rejects his hatred".
Shaista Aziz, founder of The Everyday Bigotry Project, said: "Trump's dangerously divisive presidency and casual everyday bigotry mirrors a huge spike in racist and homophobic hate crime in the U.S. and the further criminalisation and demonisation of Muslims, immigrants and refugees".
