President Trump is set to visit the UK for the first time since assuming office next month, landing in Britain on July 13.
The White House and Downing Street both confirmed the President would visit the UK for ‘bilateral talks’ with Prime Minister Theresa May.
The visit was officially announced in a press briefing with US Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, during a Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day event at the White House.
The President had formerly cancelled the visit due to planned protests but the original schedule will go ahead as planned.
What will Donald Trump do during his UK visit?
A meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May is at the top of proceedings, with the President going to Chequers for the occasion.
Trump may also meet with Queen Elizabeth II for the first time, accompanied by wife Melania, although Buckingham Palace will not comment on the visit.
The trip is expected to last overnight, but further days could be added on in the future – with Mr Trump likely to visit Scotland at some point.
President Trump has recently come under fire from critics after immigrant families were separated when crossing over the US-Mexico border.
The UK Prime Minister has so far condemned the move from the US government, calling the practice ‘deeply disturbing’.
Despite this, Theresa May will still receive the President and has indicated she will raise these concerns with Mr Trump herself.
She said: “We have a special and longstanding relationship with the United States and I think it is right there will be a range of issues I will be discussing with President Trump”.
Will there be protests against Donald Trump?
Donald Trump originally cancelled his plans for a UK visit over planned protests set to take place throughout the country.
An organisation named the ‘Carnival of Resistance’ have organised protests to take place in London.
Protests are still set to continue on the visit day, with a scheduled march starting with protestors assembling at the BBC building in Portland place and continuing towards Trafalgar square for a rally.
The mass ‘Together against Trump’ rally will provisionally take place from 2pm to 7pm on the 13th.
Theresa May has so far warned Mr Trump to steer clear of any protests taking place in the city, opting for a Chequers meet to avoid crowds.
The heavily gated location of Chequers is expected to keep away major crowds and allow for a hopefully drama-free meeting.
The Daily Mirror have also revealed Mr Trump’s potential visit to Windsor Castle will result in Windsor being closed for the day.
It is unknown whether protests are organised in Windsor for July 13.
