Has The Donald's UK Trip Been Cancelled?

Has The Donald's UK Trip Been Cancelled?by 👨‍💻 Graham Pierrepoint

It’s been a point of contention for many UK citizens planning to protest – and, this week, it appears that such an event may not occur at all – we’re referring to the previously impending UK state visit from US President Donald Trump, who was previously thought to be attending the UK for the first time in an official capacity since his ascension to Commander in Chief earlier this year. However you view Trump and his policies, he continues to be one of the most divisive Presidents in recent history.

The Queen has made a speech this week with regard to a potential plan for government that has laid out proposals made by the Conservative Party, who are currently overseeing a minority government – with no clear majority, they are at the mercy of decisions made by other parties and may well be privy to a deal or two (with the Northern Irish DUP coming into focus). The speech was therefore made to try and instill confidence in MPs across the board – and with Theresa May having made concessions on a number of policies originally laid out in her previous manifesto, the Conservative Party are hopeful that the speech will be passed and that their power can be retained.

One thing that was conspicuously missing, however, was mention of Trump’s supposed forthcoming visit to the UK – previously thought to be on a ‘state’ basis – as the Queen made no reference of the US President when listing other forthcoming state visits due to occur over the next year. While some media outlets have speculated that this may mean that Trump’s visit has been cancelled, others have advised not to read too much into things – but surely its absence in the speech could speak volumes?

Trump had allegedly advised that he was not to visit the UK until protests against his arrival were to dissipate – though this has since been denied. At present, the UK is facing up not only the potential of an entirely new minority government coming into play, but also as to what may occur with the forthcoming Brexit – meaning that the country is already looking towards a few potentially dramatic months ahead, after a surprising election result and continued division over the Brexit matter. Will a Trump visit help to settle matters down? Let’s not count on it happening just yet – but for now, at least, Trump will remain on the other side of the pond.
