• White House says Trump and May didn’t discuss UK trip


    BEDMINSTER: The White House said Sunday that President Donald Trump did not discuss a trip to Britain with Prime Minister Theresa May in their most recent telephone call, with officials denying plans had changed. Trump has been invited to make a coveted state visit, penciled in for autumn, but no dates have been set, amid political turmoil in London and fears that the US president would be greeted by mass protests. Trump was already a deeply unpopular figure in Britain before he criticized London mayor Sadiq Khan when he was managing the response to a major terror attack. White House officials say few discussions about the trip have taken place and Trump’s travel schedule is already filling up. The president is expected to travel to Poland and Germany next month and has agreed to attend summits in the Philippines and Vietnam. There have also been discussions about visit Japan and perhaps South Korea.
