Sadiq Khan shows what he really thinks of Trump's visit

In January of this year, Trump was scheduled to visit London to open the new USA embassy, but he canceled the trip, claiming he felt former President Barack Obama's administration made a bad real estate deal in choosing the new location.

Trump isn't super popular in the U.K. Last year, thousands of people protested amid reports May was planning an official visit from Trump. One Facebook group called Protest Trump's Visit, hosted by columnist Owen Jones, already has 28,000 intended attendees.

There has been speculation Mr Trump might hold talks with Theresa May at her Chequers country retreat, and meet the Queen or other royals in either Scotland or Windsor - although it will not be a state visit. "Further details will be set out in due course", he said.

Mr Trump would have been treated to lavish ceremonies and a stay with the head of state at Buckingham Palace.

The ambassador was unable to confirm who Mr Trump would meet in July but asked if it could include the Queen, the ambassador replied: "He really wants to meet the Queen". However, it will not fall into the category of a state visit.

Here is what we know so far as the United Kingdom prepares for US President Donald Trump's visit this summer.

Prince William Drops Hints About the New Royal Baby's Name
The name of the baby prince of Cambridge, who was born on Monday at 11.01am weighing 8lb 7oz, has yet to be unveiled. Carole was seen stocking up on supplies at a Boots store in west London within hours of the birth of the new baby .

Truly though, the most fabulous piece of activism against Trump's visit that we've come across is the Drag Protest Against Trump's UK Visit.

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.

Trump was promised as state visit previous year but he won't get one. They said again Thursday they would greet Trump with a "carnival of resistance" when he shows up in July.

Johnson tweeted: "FANTASTIC news that President Donald Trump will at last come to Britain on 13 July".

"Most politicians don't lay it out the way that he does so he is going to get a lot of criticism for that as people interpret where he is taking everything.But I think in the end people are starting to even now realise that where he is going is a good direction".
