'It hasn't been officially announced, but I hope he does, ' Woody Johnson said.

DONALD TRUMP will visit Britain in the New Year, the USA ambassador confirmed today.

Asked if the President will visit the United Kingdom soon, Mr Johnson told the BBC: "I hope so - it hasn't been officially announced but I hope he does, because this building has to be dedicated".

Mrs May invited Mr Trump on a state visit when she met him at the White House in January - but the formal trip, which would involve staying with the Queen, has been repeatedly delayed.

Woody Johnson said Trump's Britain First retweets were "misinterpreted".

A row erupted between the USA and United Kingdom last month after Trump retweeted three videos from Jayda Fransen, the leader of the far-right, anti-Muslim group Britain First last month, and taunted May when she condemned his actions.

"I think a lot of that stuff was probably misinterpreted". That's number one and that's my number one as well and so if you look at it in the context of that, that is what he is trying to do.

"Maybe he'll ruffle feathers - there's no question that maybe some feathers were ruffled".

However, these comments provoked further consternation from British MPs with a number of senior figures calling for protests. The working visit was conceived as an attempt to stem some of the controversy.

Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn added: "Donald Trump's reckless actions are making the world less safe and setting back global action on climate change". Trump, famously overstating the numbers at his inauguration, may finally get the crowds that he wishes for.
