..And It Turns Out Trump Is Going to Pretty Much Skip London Altogether – But for What Reason?by

Trump's London Visit Shortened Ahead Of Massive Protests --

If you’ve been paying attention to international news and affairs lately, you may likely already be aware that Donald Trump – US President – will be attending the UK on his first ‘official’ visit as head of state as of July 13th. This is a visit that has been vehemently opposed by many British citizens, leading to planned protest and – perhaps most famously in recent days – the approval of a giant Trump blimp, a caricature of the President in a diaper, is set to be tethered above Parliament Square having been approved by the London Mayor’s office. However, while the President may have been expected to visit and tour the capital, it seems that the official itinerary for his trip, and that for First Lady Melania Trump, will work that little bit differently to what has been presumed.

Trump may be set to meet the Queen and Prime Minister Theresa May on their home soil on an official basis for the first time – but according to reports, and those corroborated by Downing Street on behalf of the British Government, it seems that he will only be spending a night in the British capital, as of his arrival on Thursday July 12th. He will be staying at the official residence of the US Ambassador to the country, Winfield House, in Regent’s Park.

Trump will reportedly be spending two days of his trip up in Scotland – where the President has owned golf courses during his time as a businessman – and he will be a guest at a dinner at Blenheim Palace. This is all without mentioning his meeting with the Queen at Windsor Castle, and talks with Mrs May at Chequers, the Prime Minister’s retreat, in Buckinghamshire. The news has prompted some accusations of the President avoiding London altogether – though this has been outright denied by the US ambassador, Woody Johnson. “No, the President is not avoiding anything – the President is merely trying to get as impactful a trip as he can get in a 24-hour period,” he advised.

It seems that Trump is at least trying to get his way around as much of the UK’s main ports of call for foreign dignitaries as possible – though protests, and a certain balloon, will remain in place and will go ahead regardless of where the visiting President may be.

When NASA started recruiting for its first astronaut class in 1959, it had no idea what it was looking for because it didn't know what was going to happen to the human body in space. Basically the agency needed people used to flying dangerous missions in untested vehicles while giving real-time...
