    'When I know I’m going to get a better reception, I’ll come and not before'


    [​IMG]

    Donald Trump reportedly told Theresa May he will not make a state visit to the UK until he is guaranteed a "better reception".

    The US President asked the Prime Minister to prepare a "warm welcome" before he agrees to set a date, it has been claimed.

    The pair spoke on the phone to discuss the planned state visit, which has now been postponed until next year.

    "I haven’t had great coverage out there lately, Theresa," Mr Trump told Ms May, according to a transcript of the conversation seen by The Sun.

    Ms May replied: "Well, you know what the British press are like."

    But Mr Trump added: "I still want to come, but I’m in no rush.

    So, if you can fix it for me, it would make things a lot easier.

    "When I know I’m going to get a better reception, I’ll come and not before."

    Over 1.8 million people signed a petition to prevent Mr Trump from being honoured with a formal state visit.

    The petition reads: “Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.”

    It comes just days after French President Emmanuel Macron wooed his American counterpart during an official state visit to France.

    The pair took a tour of the Les Invalides war memorial and Elysee Palace before a bilateral meeting, followed by a luxurious dinner in the Eiffel Tower.

    Mr Trump was also the guest of honour at Friday's military parade on the Champs-Elysees - the first time a US President had attended since George Bush in 1989

    To be fair though, in France more than 1.8m would have signed a petition against him. There are 1.8m people that way inclined in nearly every country.

    Trump was in Paris few days ago. He received a warm welcome here,like to his wife Melania. He even was a guest to this year's Bastille day military parade. Not even a hundred persons were protesting in the streets against his visit. Mostly US citizens living in Paris.

    However,I am sure his visit to the UK would lead to massive opposition,even London's mayor reaffirmed his opposition to Trump and said there would be no red carpet for him. I mean,as much as Trump can be detestable sometimes,he's still the head of the most powerful country on earth.

    Possibly because he cancelled a trip to the UK last minute and then turned up in Paris. Nobody knew he was coming until he was there. Nobody had chance to organise protests. You can't say that with 6 million Muslims, nobody in France would have protested otherwise.

    Inability to put the country first, instead of personal opinion. Such people should avoid public office.

    They kept it very quite because from where I was sitting it was like, oh Trump is in Paris. Who are you kidding, you have 6 million Muslims, given forewarning, they would have been Allahu Akbaring all over the shop.

    As I said there were not even a hundred people protesting,most being US citizens living in Paris. In fact yes,Trump's venue attracted lot of people,curious people wanting to see the US President and the 1st lady.

    Nobody here knew until he was there. Nobody knew, that's why nobody protested. FFS, all the Allahu Akbaring turds you have and not on single one protesting??? Something strange there.

    There was more two weeks between Trump's venue announcement and his actual arrival in Paris and his two days stay. People had plenty times to organize or to plan protests.


    However,I am sure that in the UK,Trump would be met with strong opposition,from the British first,let alone the islamists and foreigners.

    You have twice as many Islamists as the UK, who are you kidding? You are the Islamist capital of Europe.

    Trump should come to North Yorkshire, a place that's definitely still British and forget London.

    You're kidding yourself. You pulled a good con job I'll give you that, but you have way more Islamists than us. Trump should stay away from London because it's like putting someone's head in your downstairs toilet and pretending it's representative of your house. Like I said, Yorkshire, Yorkshire, might mighty Yorkshire. And the North is the best.

    You never know. One day you might be forced to move to the south for a reason or another. OR worse,maybe southerners will move to North Yorshkshire for a reason or another. :biggthumpup:
