A history of Donald Trump's clashes with Britain

A history of Donald Trump's clashes with Britain

While Trump administration representatives including White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, were mum on additional details about what was discussed during the meeting, she noted during Thursday morning's press briefing that trade was among the leading topics.

His trip to the United Kingdom will come some 15 months after Mrs May visited the White House in January 2017 - the first world leader to do so following his inauguration.

Hassett said he did not know when Congress would move on an extension, but said, "I know that the president thinks that it is a good idea and would celebrate it happening". Cook, who has always chosen the calm route towards the recent flare in USA trade tensions with China, held private talks with Trump in the Oval Office. The Stop Trump Coalition (STC) - an ad hoc formation of protest groups, in part founded by journalist Owen Jones - has already called for a potential "march of millions" before or during the U.S. president's visit.

Following that announcement, a White House spokesperson told RTÉ News that "As of now, there are no plans to visit Ireland".

The president will meet UK Prime Minister Theresa May at Downing Street and is also expected to have discussions with some members of the royal family.

U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May said Thursday she was looking forward to meeting with Trump.

"When Donald Trump arrives on these shores, we and thousands of our supporters will very definitely be making our voices heard".

In Iran-Israel Tension, Netanyahu Warns of 'Heavy Price'
Israel's President Reuven Rivlin had said on Thursday that Israel is facing "direct threats from Iran". On Friday, he told a festive post-Independence Day cabinet meeting, "We hear the threats from Iran".

An anti-Trump campaign in London has been building up since the US President retweeted a string of unverified anti-Islamic videos posted by far-right group Britain First earlier this year.

People have already saved the date for a protest against Donald Trump.

Trump had planned a trip to London to open a new U.S. embassy there but cancelled in January.

Number 10 insisted before the "working visit" announcement that the state visit invitation, which would entail lavish ceremonies and an audience at Buckingham Palace, still stood.

By contrast to his previous promises of an unwelcoming London, today Mayor Khan took to Twitter to call the city "open", and apparently without irony in an age of advancing censorship said that Londoners treasured freedom of speech.

"Since moving into the White House, Mr Trump has shown an impatience bordering on intolerance toward peaceful protests, the media and even the democratic process itself".
