"Putting his foot on the ground of British soil, it's job one - very, very important, very symbolic", Robert Wood Johnson said when asked whether Trump's visit would involve seeing the queen.

Mr Johnson did not give details of when and where the meeting would take place.

Speculation has been growing that Trump's visit would include meeting the Queen after it emerged Windsor Castle could be closed to the public on the day of his visit, however Buckingham Palace have yet to confirm whether this is the case.

The petition led to Parliament debating whether the government should rescind its invitation to Trump.

"He's also a racist demagogue who is a danger to women, immigrants and minorities and a mortal threat to world peace and the very future of life on earth".

He calls on the PM to make "direct representations" to the President to urge him "to end this barbaric practice".

"And it is right that we are able to sit down and discuss those with the president".

UK Prime Minister Theresa May condemned the Trump administration's policy of separating child refugees from their parents on Wednesday, describing reports of such incidents as "deeply disturbing" and "wrong".

Responding to a question from the SNP's leader in the Commons Ian Blackford on whether the United Kingdom should be "rolling out the red carpet" for the President, Mrs May said: "The pictures of children being held in what appear to be cages are deeply disturbing".

May's condemnation of the zero tolerance policy comes after the Associated Press reported that the Trump administration is running three "tender age" detainment facilities in Texas, where undocumented babies and toddlers are sent after being forcibly separated from their parents. Even the current incumbent, Melania Trump, appeared to agree, stressing how the United States should "govern with heart".
