Donald Trump not welcome in Portsmouth says outraged leader of Portsmouth City Council - The News

Donald Trumps state visit to the UK set for 3 June

Sorry, were having problems with our video player at the moment, but are working to fix it as soon as we can

Rebellious Gerald Vernon-Jackson has been left furious after Downing Street went above the head of the city council to roll out the red carpet for the leader of the free world – despite Portsmouths express wishes not to.

Now the Liberal Democrat leader fears the invitation of the divisive billionaire-turned-politician will throw the commemorative event on Southsea Common into chaos, with protests on the streets.

Buckingham Palace said in a brief statement: “The President of the United States of America, President Donald J. Trump, accompanied by Mrs Melania Trump, has accepted an invitation from Her Majesty the Queen to pay a State Visit to the United Kingdom from Monday 3rd June to Wednesday 5th June 2019.”

His calls have been echoed by Stephen Morgan, Portsmouth South MP, who said it was unacceptable taxpayer cash would be spent on the visit.

We made a conscious decision not to invite him. We thought about inviting all the heads of state of Allied nations but decided against it.

London (CNN)US President Donald Trump will make his first state visit to the United Kingdom in June, Buckingham Palace said Tuesday, more than two years after an invitation was first extended.

As revealed today, the president will be flying to Britain on Monday, June 3, as part of his long-awaited state visit.
