It is understood that Trump abruptly ended the call after accusing Johnson of “betrayal” for ignoring American warnings and pushing ahead with allowing Chinese tech giant Huawai to take a role in the United Kingdom’s 5G phone network.

It is one of a number of issues that have soured relations, including Washington’s refusal to extradite Anne Sacoolas, accused of killing a British teenager in a road accident.

White House officials said the meeting had never been scheduled, while British officials tried to downplay any suggestion of a snub.

It means their first meeting since last year's British general election is expected to be at the G-7 summit at Camp David in June.

“When the Eye of Sauron is off the Whitehall machine, things stop working,” an official told the Sun newspaper. “That is why he has stripped down all his foreign travel this year to get his agenda done.”

Whitehall is where British ministries and the prime minister's residence are located.

Despite the blowup, a British official said the visit would occur at a later date.
