Britain: Downing Street braces for ‘sneak’ Trump visit – by Christian Krug

U.S. President Donald Trump may be planning to visit U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May on short notice, the Guardian reported Monday.

Trump could use his next European trip to stop by his Scottish golf resort in Turnberry and would be expected to meet May for informal talks in London if so. Downing Street is preparing for a potential visit from the president between the G20 in Hamburg this weekend and his appearance at the Bastille Day parade in Paris on July 14 alongside French President Emmanuel Macron.

No. 10 would likely be informed only 24 hours ahead of time in order to minimize the risk of disruption, according to the Guardian.

The formal state visit — announced during May’s trip to Washington in January — was expected to take place this summer but postponed over concerns of mass protests.
