PRESIDENT Donald Trump is visiting the UK in the summer, with the White House officially confirming the visit will take place in mid-July. But in February 2017 it was revealed that Trump ’s visit had been delayed until at least October in a bid to avoid protests and MPs’ snubs.

The President and Melania Trump will then overnight at Winfield House, the US ambassador’s residence in the middle of Regent’s Park. At both Blenheim and Winfield House, large protests are planned.

The next morning, the President and the Prime Minister will visit a defence site, yet to be made public, to witness “a demonstration of the UK’s cutting-edge military capabilities and integrated UK-US military training”.

The pair will then travel to Chequers for bilateral talks on a range of foreign policy issues, over a working lunch. Trump and May will then hold a joint press conference, the only point on the visit when media will have direct access to the President.

The President and the First Lady will then travel to Windsor Castle to meet The Queen, a key moment of the entire trip.

On Friday evening, they will travel to Scotland, where they will spend the weekend. It is understood that the British government will play no part in the Scottish leg of the trip as it is a ‘private element’ of the official visit.

Trump may visit his Trump Turnberry resort and play golf with an as yet unnamed fellow golfer.  Northern Ireland’s Rory McIlroy played a round with the President at his Florida retreat last year but was criticised afterwards.

The entire four-day trip appears designed to keep protestors at bay. Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire is more than 60 miles from London and is set in 2,000 acres of grounds. Theresa May’s official country residence of Chequers is in Buckinghamshire and well protected from any communal or public gathering spots.

Windsor Castle is heavily protected, although Trump will be able to hear any protests in the streets the other side of its thick stone walls. The President’s limo, dubbed ‘the Beast’, will be used for parts of the trip but he is expected to travel largely via his Marine One helicopter.

The Scottish leg of the trip will see big demonstrations in Glasgow on Friday and Edinburgh on Saturday.

After his UK visit, Trump will then hold a summit with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, in Helsinki, Finland. Putin has to stay in Moscow for the World Cup final next Sunday.
