Donald Trump: Protests planned as visit to UK confirmed for July 13

СМИ Трамп собрался в июле посетить Великобританию

The U.K. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Thursday welcomed the announcement of Donald Trump's visit to Britain on July 13, despite making harsh statements about the USA president in the past.

Trump has frequently said he would not consider his presidency successful unless Apple builds manufacturing plants in the United States.

Trump announced about $50 billion in planned tariffs on certain Chinese imports, China retaliated with proposed tariffs on some American goods and Trump responded that the United States could counter with $100 billion in additional levies.

British opponents of Donald Trump looking forward to shouting at the US president in person this summer could be disappointed.

Protesters have already vowed they will be out in force to let the US President know what they think of him.

The visit will be a low-key working affair rather than a state occasion and will form part of a tour of Europe as the U.S. president will attend a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels earlier in the week.

Campaigners have previously said Trump would face the biggest rally "ever seen", should he come to the UK. The then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson later explained the president was avoiding a visit to Britain to allow May to concentrate on Brexit.

President Donald Trump says he's sending some of his top economic advisers to China "in a few days" for talks on the simmering trade tensions between the world's two largest economies.

But it is thought his decision may have been driven by a fear of protests in the capital.

Concern over his reception is believed to have played a part in the postponement of a state visit mooted for 2017.

Critics in Britain said May was too hasty in extending an invite for a full state visit, which traditionally includes a carriage ride with the queen and a banquet at Buckingham Palace.

The letter to Mr Trump was signed by the heads of conservative thinktanks the Bow Group, Bruges Group, Parliament Street and the Freedom Association, as well as the chairman of Republicans Overseas Scotland and a contributor to ThinkScotland.

Khan remarked in January that: "It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity and tolerance". Mass protests that are likely to greet Trump in the July.

Relations turned particularly testy last November after Trump shared three inflammatory anti-Muslim videos posted by far-right group Britain First.
