The two nations have also seen huge differences on multiple issues like Trump's retreat from the Paris climate accord, his decision regarding Jerusalem at the end of 2017 and his refusal to certify Iran's compliance with the historic Iran nuclear deal in October.
It was confirmed yesterday that the firebrand Republican will officially visit Britain for the first time on July 13, holding one-on-one talks with Prime Minister Theresa May following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels. "Due to the appalling way the Trump administration has regarded the rights and welfare of LGBTQI communities of the USA, the idea of a Trump visit to the United Kingdom is unacceptable".
Trump's statement further irritated London, as many people and government officials asked May to withdraw her invitation to Trump to pay a state visit. A petition to boycott Trump from making an official state visit garnered 1.5 million-plus signatures.
Newspaper reports had suggested that the US President would avoid London due to the extensive protests planned against his visit.
Mr Trump would have been treated to lavish ceremonies and a stay with the head of state at Buckingham Palace.
"Calling all drag kings, queens, queers and our allies to march against President Donald Trumps UK visit", the event page reads. He had previously canceled a trip to Britain over concerns in Washington that his visit would prompt protests.
Trump has clashed publicly with London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, who has said the president's visit would result in mass peaceful protests and that Trump's values were the polar opposite of Londoners'.
Will the visit play out like it's supposed to?
