The US president is set to visit London February 26th and 27th 2018 to open the new American embassy in the UK. Downing Street admitted to having the visit pencilled in their diary for the past 10 days. The revelation comes after Trump retweeted three posts from far-right group Britain First which is similar in its activity to KKK. The move prompted unprecedented attacks by British MPs on the president, labelling him a “fascist” and a “racist” and calls for him to be arrest for promoting hate. It is is not believed the trip will be a full state visit and Mr Trump is not expected to meet the Queen, according to sources. Londoners have already begun planning protests to mark the visit. Trump is currently pursuing a string of anti-LGBT policies in the US, for example ban on transgender militants.
