The Guardian: Donald Trump's state visit to Britain put on hold

US president told Theresa May he did not want trip to go ahead if there were large-scale public protests

Donald Trump has told Theresa May in a phone call he does not want to go ahead with a state visit to Britain until the British public supports him coming.

The US president said he did not want to come if there were large-scale protests and his remarks in effect put the visit on hold for some time.

The call was made in recent weeks, according to a Downing Street adviser who was in the room. The statement surprised May, according to those present.

The conversation in part explains why there has been little public discussion about a visit.

WNU Editor: Another anonymous source .... and made public after the election .... so take it for what it is worth. Even though the British Prime Minister's office is saying that the trip is still on .... Britain denies that Trump state visit delayed (Reuters) .... and considering how bad the election debacle was .... my gut is telling me that President Trump wants to avoid this political mess until they sort out amongst themselves on what is going to happen next.

Theresa May was weak. She was PC. She is a rube.

“The terrorist chose to strike at the heart of our capital city where people of all nationalities religions and cultures come together to celebrate the values of liberty, democracy and freedom of speech. - Theresa May

Poll reveals 40pc of Muslims want sharia law in UK

The current or recent past British values are not sharia values. One set of values must give way.

Yes ma'am, yes ma'am, three bags full (of scheisse)


It could be worse.

Her labor opponent is just stir crazy.

I bet her opponent is Guardian reader like JabberJay

"The truth is that British values are no superior to those of any other nation. The very conversation is patronising to anyone of non-British origin."

Why would Trump want to meet with a weak, spineless and benighted leader?

Maybe when Theresa May gets fired, Obama can hire her to run a mean hashtag campaign calling out the 'bad' guys

And why would the British want a visit from a vile, weak, self centered, spineless and be knighted leader from the US?

Why would anyone take seriously anyone called Anonymous, who uses the same moniker as 2 other people on the same website?

If something doesn't go well you can always blame it on the other Anons.

You might be taken seriously, if you could spell benighted correctly.

Anon,

This would actually be better expressed as why would POTUS want to meet with a weak, self centered, spineless, and benighted leader from the United Kingdom. The US has enormous challenges right now. The UK contributes little to nothing of value to the US and cobined with the enormous costs associated with these chumps there's no sound reason for POTUS or the US governnent to persue this avenue right now or likeky at any time in the foreseeable future.
