There are unconfirmed reports that the date of the US president’s visit to Britain will be pushed back to the first week of October in hopes that the public outcry over his visit will “die down.”
Initially, it was thought he would come in June, but an official visit by King Felipe of Spain to the UK early that month is one indication that Trump’s visit has been delayed until the autumn.
“King Felipe VI, accompanied by Queen Letizia of Spain, has accepted an invitation from the Queen to pay a state visit to the United Kingdom from 6th to 8th June 2017,” an official statement from Buckingham Palace said.
A “senior government source” reportedly told the Sun that “Trump still really wants to come this year, but he wants the heat to die down a bit first.”
Trump was invited to the UK by Prime Minister Theresa May, who was the first foreign leader to meet the president after he came to office.
“The prime minister said she looks forward to welcoming him later this year,” a spokesperson for Downing Street said after the two leaders held a joint press conference.
