Here's everything Donald Trump will miss out on during his United Kingdom visit

'Exact dates for President Trump to visit have not yet been arranged'. However, he now plans a more low-key "working visit" in which he could still meet the Queen. Whether the location of this "working visit" is the heart of Downing Street or a golf resort in Scotland, we will be there.

The controversy was compounded by deeply unpopular statements Trump made on Twitter, following the terrorist attack at London Bridge, about the city's mayor Sadiq Khan. New plans for a more limited visit, in which he would not be hosted by the Queen are now being considered. But a spokesperson for his office said he would not object to a working visit.

Ordinary people have shown they are willing to stand up to racism and sexism wherever it comes from.

The President's spokesman said: "The subject never came up".

It will also see him miss out on the long list of privileges afforded to monarchs, presidents or prime ministers invited on State Visits by the Queen.

Over the summer The Guardian reported that Trump told May in a phone call he wanted to put the trip on hold until the British public supported it.

He has already visited Germany, France, Italy, Belgium and Poland, and British officials are keen for the president to come to the United Kingdom in order to signify a strong relationship with the U.S., especially after Brexit.

May's offer of a State Visit, an honour usually reserved for USA presidents in their second term, sparked mass protests and a petition calling for its cancellation.

The Evening Standard, which is edited by George Osborne, a former finance minister fired by May a year ago, reported that diplomats were discussing plans for a pared-down working visit, devoid of the pomp of a full state visit.
