The White House on Sunday denied a report that President Donald Trump was delaying a planned trip to the United Kingdom.
The Guardian reported that Trump recently told British Prime Minister Theresa May over the phone that he was putting the tentative visit on hold due to concerns that he’d face protests, citing an unnamed British adviser present in the room during the call. The New York Times also reported Sunday that Trump was considering delaying a visit, citing two unnamed administration officials.
An anonymous senior Trump official told CNN that Trump did not float delaying his trip on a Friday call with May. An unnamed Trump administration official also denied to Reuters that Trump broached the subject.
