USA ambassador to UK: Trump is 'very thick-skinned'

"Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the United Kingdom in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen", it stated.

- The US ambassador to Britain, Robert Wood Johnson, said Mr Trump "really wants" to meet the Queen, adding the president would "definitely" be coming to London, despite the warnings of likely demonstrations.

Trump's visit has been anticipated for more than a year, after May was the first foreign leader to be hosted by the president at the White House after his inauguration. Within hours of the announcement, more than 100,000 Facebook users signalled their interest in "Protest Trump's visit", a demonstration organised by journalist Owen Jones.

"Further details will be set out in due course", a Downing Street spokesperson said in a statement.

Asked how concerned the president is about the prospect of protests, Mr Johnson added: 'He's very thick-skinned.

When Mrs May initially extended the invitation to Mr Trump in 2017, a state visit was on the cards. That state visit will be put off a little bit but maybe next year he will do that.

Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London, tweeted on Thursday, "If he comes to London, President Trump will experience an open and diverse city that has always chosen unity over division and hope over fear".

"Fantastic news that President Donald Trump will at last come to Britain on 13 July".

"He speaks in a very clear and unusual way", Johnson said.

'Most politicians don't weigh it out the way he does and so he is going to get a lot of criticism for that as people interpret where he is taking everything.
