May decided to keep trump from the protests
Prime Minister Theresa may called on the President of the United States Donald trump to avoid the protests to meet with her outside of London. It is reported by the tabloid the Sun.
British Ambassador to United States Kim Darroch will present the White house two programmes of the visit. One of them will include a meeting at 10 Downing street, the other in the suburban residence of the Prime Minister at Chequers.
“We are ready for both options. However, we made it clear that he would prefer President’s choice in favor of Checkers,” — said the publication in the British government.
This decision is connected with tens of thousands of protesters who promised to take to the streets of the British capital in the case that trump will arrive in London. As writes the edition, they may consider meeting with the American leader “a diplomatic disaster”.
In connection with the dissatisfaction of the public meeting of the President with Queen Elizabeth II also proposed to move from Buckingham Palace to Windsor castle.
The American leader should visit the UK in July this year to discuss transatlantic cooperation in the security sphere.
In January, trump refused to go to Britain on an official visit and to participate in the opening of the new Embassy in London. Then he said that he didn’t like the new building on Grosvenor square on the South Bank of the river Thames, where from the area “little America” the Embassy has moved a former President of the United States Barack Obama.
A month before that, the leader of the labour party Jeremy Corbyn urged his colleagues to give Trump clearly know that it does not expect in the United Kingdom. This led to the fact that the original program of the visit that involved meeting trump with the Queen, was changed to a less prestigious working visit.
