  • Protesters on alert: Donald Trump may 'sneak' into Britain within fortnight

The Prime Minister's official spokesman told reporters at a regular Westminster media briefing on Monday: "I am not aware of any plans for the president to visit the United Kingdom in the next few weeks".

Donald Trump has spent over 20 per cent of his time as President at one of his golf clubs as of his latest trip.

Officials believe the USA president may have a window in his schedule to drop in on one of his golf courses in Scotland, which are in Aberdeenshire and Turnberry, Ayrshire, as he has several visits planned in Europe in July.

The Government has insisted a separate and contentious state visit to Britain will go ahead despite it not being listed in the Queen's Speech.

"Let's take to the street in great number - and do ourselves proud by showing that Britain rejects his hatred", Owen Jones, a member of the Stop Trump campaign, told the London Evening Standard.

"The formality is that you can not put the presidential visit in [the Queen's Speech] until the date has been agreed".

President Trump is due in Germany this weekend to attend the G7 summit in Hamburg, and will visit Paris the week after for Bastille Day.

The proposed budget relies on more than $2 billion in spending cuts and a likely increase in the income tax to raise $5 billion. IL is at risk for entering its third year without a budget, a stunning development never seen in the state's 199 year history.

The US President has sparked widespread anger after tweeting a mocked-up video of him beating up a man with a CNN logo over his face.

The White House said Trump has calls scheduled Monday morning with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

In order to avoid protesters having time to prepare, any official confirmation of his visit is likely to be given only a day in advance, a White House source told the Sunday Times.

The British government reportedly does not know of any plans for President Trump to make a trip to Britain within the next few weeks.

A formal state visit invitation on behalf of Queen had been accepted by Trump during May's visit to Washington in January but plans for him to visit around August/September were reportedly postponed last month.

"There's a difference between the status of the Spanish state visit and the visit of President Trump", Johnson said last month.
