Timeline: President's Donald Trump's rocky road to UK visit

This is so much bigger than Boris | British politics | For Europe, Against the EU

May appears to have seen off an immediate challenge to her leadership from malcontents within her Conservative Party but Trump's comments ahead of the trip - that Britain was "in somewhat turmoil" and that it was up to the people if she stayed in power - fanned the sense of political crisis. "I'm not sure. That's not on the schedule, but the president makes his own schedule".

The New Zealand dollar rose against the British pound to the highest level in nearly two weeks after UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson became the latest minister to resign from Theresa May's Conservative government over her Brexit plans. Maybe we'll speak to him when I get over there.

After he was invited past year, more than 1.86 million people signed a petition saying Trump should not be given a state visit because it could embarrass the queen and thousands of police will also be on duty with large protests expected.

"He's been saying very good things about me as president".

But he praised Mrs May as a "very tough negotiator" and described her as an "incredible woman" who is "doing a fantastic job".

He went on to say Mr Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers' plan, was "a great representative for your country".

"Whatever the decision the Queen decides to take about whether to invite him to tea or not, and what advice the Prime Minister gives on that, is between them, I don't know what went on. I think he's got what it takes".
