Donald Trump’s state visit to the UK has reportedly been postponed due to fear of the huge public anger he would face were he to arrive in the country within the next few months.
Trump’s arrival had been scheduled for this June. However, the Sun newspaper reports that the White House has agreed to delay it until October in order to allow the row over his visit to “die down.”
“Trump still really wants to come this year, but he wants the heat to die down a bit first,” a government source told the paper.
Opponents of Trump and UK PM Theresa May are celebrating.
Well today we have an answer: Trump and May are running scared from our protests, thanks to everyone who came out! https://t.co/SenhVmzNP8
