Donald Trump and Theresa May Trump May Visit Ireland This Month

Or he might visit Mrs.

The White House said Trump has calls scheduled Monday morning with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni.

A formal state visit, which was expected to take place over the summer, was postponed last month, amid fears that it could be disrupted by mass protests, despite Theresa May extending the invitation personally when she visited the White House late past year. "We are aware he might want to see the Prime Minister", a government source told the U.K.'s Daily Express.

Asked whether a state visit would take place during 2017, the PM's spokesman said: "We have extended an invitation, it has been accepted and we will set out plans in due course".

May did not include any mention of a state visit from the US President during the Queen's Speech, leading to speculation that he would not make a visit at all.

The Government is ready to welcome the President to Downing Street, although the President will only give Theresa May's team 24 hours to prepare.

Reports in the British media claimed that President Trump would visit Turnberry, his golf course in Scotland, before traveling to meet with French President Emmanuel Macron in Paris to celebrate Bastille Day on July 14.

"Almost two million people signed a petition objecting to the visit in February.

But we'll oppose him whenever and however he comes to the United Kingdom", said Nick Dearden, director of Global Justice Now, a Stop Trump coalition member.

"Stop Trump" campaigner and Guardian columnist Owen Jones appealed to his followers on Twitter on Sunday, encouraging people to protest against Trump, whom he described as a "bigot".

"There's a difference between the status of the Spanish state visit and the visit of President Trump", Johnson said last month. "Let's take to the street in great number - and do ourselves proud by showing that Britain rejects his hatred".

This came after the White House denied reports Mr Trump had told Mrs May he does not want to go ahead with the trip if it is going to lead to large-scale demonstrations.

CNN has reached out to the White House for comment.
