President Donald Trump has confirmed he will travel to London 10 days before UK’s general election. It’s anticipated he will also attend a reception at Buckingham Palace, which will be hosted by the Queen.
The US President will be in the capital with the first lady for the Nato summit between 2nd and 4th December.
The White House said in a statement that the president “looks forward to meeting” the other Nato leaders and would “emphasize the need for the Nato alliance to ensure its readiness for the threats of tomorrow”.
The president has previously been criticised for voicing his opinions of British political leaders, including Boris Johnson and Jeremy Corbyn.
In October the president criticised Mr Johnson’s Brexit deal with the EU, saying it restricted the US’s ability to do future trade with the UK.
The US president also took aim at Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, saying he would be “so bad” as prime minister.
