No palace for Trump

The Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

A PLAN for Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump to stay with the Queen at Buck­ing­ham Palace is un­likely to go ahead.

The US Pres­i­dent had been of­fered the hon­our of a full state visit. Such a visit would tra­di­tion­ally in­clude stay­ing with the Queen at the Palace.

How­ever, a furore broke out in Bri­tain over the of­fer, one usu­ally re­served for a pres­i­dent in the sec­ond term of of­fice.

The trip has been re­peat­edly de­layed be­cause Mr Trump fears the op­po­si­tion he could face from Brits who dis­like him, and he is now set to tour in early 2018, re­ports say.
