The London itinerary is part of a packed overseas agenda that includes a D-Day commemoration ceremony.
At their initial visit to the palace early Monday morning, the president and first lady Melania Trump had a private lunch with the Queen, later inspecting a collection of artifacts including an 18th-century map of New York, historic photos of golf at St. Andrews and books about birds and George Washington. He then participated in a wreath-laying at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior at Westminster Abbey.
The Mayor of London makes things a bit interesting. Last week Sadiq Khan, called Trump “the fascists of the 20th century.” Trump continued the attack Monday, calling Khan a “stone cold loser.”
Trump attempted to clarify that he would not let Khan dampen his trip and said he looks forward to his visit. Trump will be in the U.K. from Monday to Wednesday to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, which comes at a tumultuous time in British politics, with Prime Minister Theresa May due to step down on Friday.
