He’ll love this. He already thinks he’s a rock star. He doesn’t want to roll up his sleeves and do any work. He just wants victory tours and for the country to kiss his ass. This guy is an embarrassment.
It was announced on Sunday that, after he is sworn in as president on January 20, Donald Trump will be invited to meet Queen Elizabeth.
According to BR, sources close to Trump report that the president-elect is very excited about the upcoming visit. A member of pro-Brexit British politician Nigel Farage’s group said about Trump, who praised the UK’s decision to leave the EU, “He’s looking forward to it. He’s a massive Anglophile. He was really, really keen. His late mother, Mary, loved the Queen. He said, ‘I’m going to meet her, too. I can’t wait to come over to England. My mum would be chuffed to bits when I meet the Queen.’”
An unnamed source also said Trump’s visit is part of the British government’s “secret weapon to get in with” the president-elect.
‘The government has decided that their secret weapon to get in with Trump is to offer him an early visit to the Queen, him and [his wife] Melania staying at Windsor Castle.’
It seems that UK Prime Minister Theresa May is hoping to use Trump’s visit with the Queen to get in his good graces and initiate a free trade deal with the United States.
According to a senior official, details about the invitation that will be extended to president-elect Trump have been held back out of respect for President Obama.
“I know that there are plans for a state visit,” the official told The Sunday Times. “They didn’t want to say it because it’s disrespectful to Obama, but once [Trump is] in they’ll move quickly in No 10. London in summer is a very attractive place for anyone to come. It will be the first offer.”
In April of this year, President Obama had lunch with the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh and said that Britain would be at “the back of the queue” for a trade deal if they went forward with Brexit.
Donald Trump, on the other hand, seems more eager to work with the United Kingdom. According to The Sunday Times, he spoke last week about a “really good conversation” that he had with May. He went on to say that he wants to “develop a good relationship with her” and said that “she sounds like a good lady.”
May said after their conversation that she wants to ensure that the “special relationship” continues between Britain and the United States.
No official date has been set for Trump’s visit to Britain, although a Downing Street spokeswoman made it clear that Trump is welcome in the UK any time.
‘No visit has been organised but the Prime Minister is looking forward to welcoming the president-elect to the UK when he chooses to visit.’
It seems that Theresa May will be visiting the United States before Trump heads abroad. During their phone call, Trump reportedly invited May to visit him, and The Sunday Times reports that she is currently looking into a trip to Washington before the year ends “to hammer home Britain’s case.”
British foreign secretary Boris Johnson also has plans to send aides to meet with Mike Pence and the rest of Trump’s transition team. Johnson himself is also expected to visit the United States before Christmas.
