Trump plans working visit to the United Kingdom in early 2018

Donald Trump will visit Britain early next year, but it will be a "working visit" rather than a state visit, it has been reported.

Instead of red carpet treatment, Trump will likely include it during a tour of several countries.

When diplomats are visiting as part of a state visit, they typically stay at Buckingham Palace.

"Not accurate, we've not yet scheduled anything for next year", Michael Anton, a national security official in the Trump administration, told The Hill when asked about the report.

A source close to Sadiq Khan confirmed to HuffPost UK that the Mayor of London, who led criticism of the State Visit invitation, "would not object" to a working visit.

The offer of a state visit made by Theresa May to the U.S. president in January raised eyebrows with a former head of the committee that arranges state visits saying it breached protocol.

The report said a future state visit had not been ruled out, but no date had been set.

Commons speaker John Bercow later said the president should not be allowed to address the House of Commons during any visit.

There was also a public backlash, with nearly two million people signing a petition saying the USA president's "well documented misogyny and vulgarity" disqualified him from an audience with the Queen.

The newspaper said its view was that "any United States president is welcome in London".

The move would avoid the controversy surrounding Mr Trump's state visit, which was offered by Theresa May within days of his inauguration but is yet to take place.

Jeremy Shapiro claimed Trump was "exploiting" Britain's romantic view of the special relationship to get a post-Brexit trading deal that benefited America.
