Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II invited President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump to a state visit to the United Kingdom in June “to mark the 75th anniversary of D-Day.” Both have accepted.

This state visit is Trump’s first to the UK. He attended tea with the queen in June 2018.

He will also speak with British Prime Minister Theresa May. From the BBC:

Mrs May said that June’s State Visit was an “opportunity to strengthen our already close relationship in areas such as trade, investment, security and defence, and to discuss how we can build on these ties in the years ahead”.

The White House said the visit will reaffirm the “steadfast and special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom”.

From Reuters:

“The UK and United States have a deep and enduring partnership that is rooted in our common history and shared interests,” May said in a statement.

“The State Visit is an opportunity to strengthen our already close relationship in areas such as trade, investment, security and defence, and to discuss how we can build on these ties in the years ahead.”

The BBC reported that “Canada, France, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, Luxembourg, Poland, Norway, Denmark, Netherlands, Greece, Slovakia and the Czech Republic” also received an invitation to attend the event.

The Trumps will then travel to France to participate in other D-Day events at Normandy at the request of French President Emmanuel Macron.

The idea of a Trump state visit came up recently, which led to The Guardian‘s editorial board to demand it not to happen due to the supposed “damning” report from Special Counsel Robert Mueller. They wrote:

The proposal that the British state should extend to this unworthy man its highest honours, including an address to parliament, and a banquet and carriage ride down the Mall with the Queen, is misjudged. It will do nothing to revive the “special relationship”, already torn apart by Trump’s reactionary policies on climate change, migration, race, multilateralism, Yemen, nuclear arms, civil liberties and other issues. What it will do is give an undeserved boost to a wounded charlatan.

If Americans are content to allow a habitual liar who has presided over systemic illegality, numerous ill-concealed attempts to obstruct justice and a foul-mouthed culture of venality and vendettas to continue to lead their country, that is a matter for them. But the British people cannot be expected to collude or condone such misbehaviour. And what’s to be gained? A fantasy post-Brexit trade deal? Trump’s word, evidently, cannot be trusted.

Protests from Londoners greeted the Trumps during their last visit. People boasted of a big baby Trump balloon, but it turned out to be really small. The Telegraph wrote that these “[C]ampaigners have already said they intend to do the same again when Mr Trump comes in June.”

Shame the Germans are back in control of France again.

“The White House said the visit will reaffirm the ‘steadfast and special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom.'”

I suppose that’s still true since by special relationship the UK means “when we’re in trouble we always expect the USA and its taxpayers to be there for us.”

They really don’t understand DJT at all.

I wouldn’t be in the least surprised if he has a bigger one made and donates it to them, so they can protest in proper style.

That’s fine if you don’t like the man. But have some respect for the office and country he represents. If it wasn’t for us, you’d all be speaking German right now. Granted in a few years you’ll all be speaking Arabic and under control of the German government.

As it turns out, the Obama administration and the Hillary campaign colluded with a British agent to spy on an American presidential candidate.

    Maybe President Trump can give the Queen some of these.

    A top FBI official has confirmed Hillary Clinton’s missing emails were found in the Obama White House.

    Assistant FBI Director Bill Priestap admitted under oath the bureau had found 49,000 Clinton emails at the Executive Office of President Obama.

    The new revelations are according to a statement made Tuesday by government watchdog group Judicial Watch.

Yes the left over hear is already working itself up in to a selective outrage over his visit. Quite sad really.

Make sure that ass Meghan Markle is out of town.
