Tens of thousands sign up to protest against Trump's United Kingdom visit

Trump to visit UK in July Sadiq Khan Twitterati fire up promise ‘loud’ protests

Sadiq Khan, the mayor of London, responded to Thursday's formal announcement of the visit by saying that Mr Trump would "experience an open and diverse..."

There is speculation that, as a result of possible crowd trouble, Trump will meet the Queen or other royals at Windsor Castle, and will join the PM at her Chequers countryside retreat, rather than in central London, The Independent reports.

Mr Johnson said Mr Trump's combative style was down to his Scottish roots and insisted he was "thick skinned" enough to deal with protest.

"Calling all drag kings, queens, queers and our allies to march against President Donald Trumps UK visit", the event page reads.

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

"Further details will be set out in due course", a Downing Street spokesperson said in a statement. That state visit will be put off a little bit but maybe next year he will do that.

The announcement comes during a busy day for Trump, in which he praised rapper Kanye West, said he'd take no action against FBI investigator Robert Mueller, and confirmed that Michael Cohen was in fact his lawyer, despite previously claiming not to be that close to him.

Talk of a visit in Trump's first year went unrealized amid several controversies sparked by his comments or tweets, including attacks on London's Muslim mayor that May criticized.

When asked about Johnson's comments, a spokesperson for the British Prime Minister said, "we recognize the excellent characteristics of the Scottish people and the contribution they make to the United Kingdom as a whole". A petition to boycott Trump from making an official state visit garnered 1.5 million-plus signatures.

Under domestic pressure, May said that Trump's remarks were wrong, triggering the latter's retort demanding her not focus on him, but on anti-terrorism efforts in her own nation.

And, prior to the 2016 U.S presidential election, Khan told British broadcasters that he hoped Hillary Clinton "trounces" Trump and said that he would be happy to educate Trump about Islam.
