President Donald Trump UK visit date confirmed for Friday, 13 July



The White House and Downing Street have confirmed that Donald Trump will visit the UK on Friday, 13 July.
 
On Wednesday, Sky's senior political correspondent Beth Rigby revealed that Mr Trump would make the trip in mid-July, with a full announcement expected within a day or so.


Now White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has told reporters that the date has been set, which will mark his first visit to Britain since his 2016 election triumph.


In a statement, Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said: "The President of the United States will visit the UK on July 13. He will hold bilateral talks with the Prime Minister during his visit.


"Further details will be set out in due course."


The trip is only being billed as a "working visit" rather than an official state one, which would have seen Mr Trump meet the Queen.


He is not expected to meet Her Majesty or any other members of the royal family when he arrives, with a precise location yet to be revealed.
