US president expected to be in London during meeting of Nato heads of state and government
Donald Trump is expected to return to the UK for the second working visit of his presidency and what should be his first stay following Britain’s exit from the European Union.
Trump, who has repeatedly criticised the military alliance, will meet heads of state in the capital, Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg announced in a tweet on Wednesday.
Last year the president was met with huge protests up and down the country, dropped a bombshell on Theresa May as he was dining with her and visibly annoyed the Queen.
Around 100,000 people gathered in Trafalgar Square in one of the largest protests the country has ever seen.
This came after Trump soured the mood during a fancy dinner at Blenheim Palace with Theresa May, essentially rubbishing her attempts to negotiate Brexit in an interview with The Sun, which landed probably around the same time dessert was being served.
Trump claimed Britain remaining closely aligned to the European Union under May’s plans would undermine a UK-US trade pact – which is seen as one of the biggest prizes after quitting the bloc.
The president had been in the UK for a little over eight hours at this point.
He also attacked May’s negotiating strategy, adding: “I would have done it much differently. I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn’t agree, she didn’t listen to me.”
Then, to top off a pretty disastrous weekend, Trump arrived at Windsor Castle where the Queen literally had to teach him how to walk in a straight line.
