Americans no doubt are aware of the divisive nature of Trumps politics in the USA, but don't realise the strength of feeling against Trump in the UK.


Donald Trump's trip to the UK will be postponed so that he can avoid protests.

Senior politicians and Theresa May hope that people will have forgotten about the President's controversial policies by the time he arrives, according to The Sun, which first reported news of the change.

Mr Trump was invited to the UK by Ms May in January. But the move was immediately met by protests by both the public and Parliament, and the President is said to be concerned that he will be snubbed or embarrassed if he has his state visit in June as planned.

Instead, it will be moved to October, according to The Sun. By that time, protests over Mr Trump's Muslim ban and other controversial policies may have died down and the trip will be less embarrassing, officials hope.

Moving the trip to October also means that Mr Trump could meet The Queen at Balmoral, reportedly a keen hope of the President. The Queen's summer schedule is already packed, but she may be able to find space in the autumn, according to reports.

The schedule – which is currently planned to run from 5 October to 8 October, or Thursday to Sunday – means that the trip would fall just after the Tory party conference. It would also mean that MPs were still away from Parliament on recess, minimising the chance of an embarrassing snub by MPs.

Mr Trump's election and resulting policies have received widespread criticism from politicians, who have threatened to try and ban him from parliament entirely. The decision to invite the President to the UK has also been greeted by some of the largest street protests in recent years, and activists have promised to protest any trip that Mr Trump does eventually make.

"Trump still really wants to come this year, but he wants the heat to die down a bit first," a senior UK government source told The Sun. “The White House watch what happens over here surprisingly closely, and they don’t want to create a scene for our sake either.”

Much of the controversy has surrounded Mr Trump's Muslim ban, which kept people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the US but was struck down by a judge. The Trump administration is in the process of re-writing that executive order, with some tweaks.

Right...and how will the English forget about his controversial policies?

This looks to me like he is a scared dog with his tail between his legs.

concerned that he will be snubbed or embarrassed if he has his state visit in June as planned.


Or maybe he fears that there will be an assassination attempt on his life...the Trump is a paranoid freak.

If Trump visited London in the near future there would be over two hundred thousand demonstrators.
In January, when he got sworn in as president, there were over hundred thousand demonstrators in London and it was little to do with his Islamophobia.

Close to 100,000 protesters have marched on London to express their opposition to Donald Trump’s presidency. Women’s March On London was one of hundreds of protests taking place in major cities around the globe to mark the politician’s inauguration.

Women’s Marches took place in cities around the world to protest the inauguration of the controversial president, who has been sued for allegedly denying accommodation to African Americans while a real estate mogul and also been recorded appearing to brag about sexually assaulting women.

Mr Trump is said to have told Theresa May it would be better to push it back to October following widespread public outcry.
A senior government source told The Sun: ‘Trump still really wants to come this year, but he wants the heat to die down a bit first.

It's unclear in the OP but Trump postponed the visit to Britain to wait for "the heat to die down a bit first" and avoid creating a scene. I would have come to the same conclusion, if I were him.

He's indeed the most Israeli American president, Israel is fond on such leaders. Most of Israeli leaders were of his kind. Hated abroad but did a great job in protecting the country interests. Israel had all sort of leaders. Ugly, dwarf, old woman, terrorist, fat, war criminal, you name it, but they were all loyal and dedicated to their people on biblical way. Was surprised when Americans elected Trump. Usually they vote for representative plastic figures who reads their speeches from prompter and spend their days on endless vacations.

Yeah, Trump is pretty good when he can blather spontaneously, while he's awful when he has to present a well-composed and coherent message that may be reasonable and meaningful too publicly. The only way he can do it is if he reads it, I think he prefers paper to prompter, but he's terrible at doing it, partly because it's written by somebody else and he has nothing to do with either the text itself or its content.

:lol: Which Israeli PM was like Trump? I can't recall any, even Bibi can't be compared to him. Israel's leaders are professional statesmen and not amateurish buffoons.

I didn't say he should visit Israel because he's like an Israeli leader, but because it wouldn't be an embarrassment to him.

Trump would never risk a visit to Britain or anywhere else that could be a PR-failure that could hurt or even devastate his image.
