They’re calling it a “surprise visit,” but with all the government leaks these days, it’s not easy for President Trump to make an unexpected move. News outlets are illustrating that fact as they broadcast rumors of an as-of-yet unannounced visit to the U.K.
“British politicians think Donald Trump may make a flying visit to the UK around the G20 Summit in Hamburg this week,” read a report from Sky News on Sunday, which quoted a “leading UK politician with connections to the White House,” who implied that a visit “could come much sooner than you think.”
Such speculations of a sudden appearance in England are being fueled by the fact that President Trump is scheduled to visit Poland and Germany this week, before traveling down to France for Bastille day celebrations on July 14. The White House has confirmed that the President’s next European trip will begin in Warsaw, where he will address 12 central European, Baltic and western Balkan leaders at the Three Seas Conference.
He is also expected to speak at Krasinski Square, the site of the 1944 Warsaw uprising against Nazi occupation, where he will likely explain his plans for “the future of our transatlantic alliance and what that means for American security and American prosperity.”
The British media has heard rumors of a “four-day window” in Trump’s schedule between the G20, which takes place this week, and a scheduled trip to Paris. According to Sky, “Some have speculated the US President could visit his golf resort in Scotland in that time, and perhaps pay a call to Downing Street or Chequers.”
Trump was originally supposed to visit England in the fall, but “that visit was put on hold after the US President apparently expressed concern about demonstrators in a phone call with the PM.,” according to the report.
Trump will also be having a face-to-face meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
