Bit early I know, but it is being reported that a Trump has indicated that he expects Farage to attend the state banquet???

Since when has a guest dictated the other guests?

Everything is tops turvey these days.

He clearly doesn’t understand how state dinners work.

As my old mum would have said, " there's plenty of room for him ".

I don't dislike Trump, I just think he's brash, bullish and has no idea of English manners. He's not refined.
Any normal President or head of any country would never in a million years have allowed an interviewer to ask if he would have slept with Diana Princess of Wales.
Crass doesn't begin to describe it.
I just know that he'll put his foot (and mouth) right in it.
Luckily we have a Queen who can overcome anything thrown at her.

No, I though DT had invited NF to a private party?

Although not a fan of the Royal Family, I think it is bad enough that the Queen has to endure a state visit of this appalling man for the sake of international relations. To inflict the egregious Farage upon her is a step too far.

Yes; Sky News just now. Trump endorses both Johnson and Farage. Says it all really. See to remember people being up in arms about Obama sharing a stage with Cameron. Why no outcry about this [yet]?

LONDON — Donald Trump has said he could meet with Boris Johnson and Nigel Farage when he visits the country next week, lauding them as "very good guys" and "big powers" in the United Kingdom.
'The US President said on Thursday that he may meet with Johnson, who is the current frontrunner to replace Theresa May as Conservative leader and prime minister, during his state visit to the UK on June 3-5.
He also paid tribute to Brexit Party leader Farage, who he congratulated on a "big victory" in last week's European elections. The Brexit Party won 32% of the national vote despite being just weeks old.' Good guys indeed....

Trump and Johnson can exchange ideas about the best way to lie to the voter.

I doubt Nigel Farage will accompany Trump as he (Trump) is bringing several family members with him.

I am sure the Queen will cope quite well. After all she has hosted many truly vile world leaders, all of whom are far far worse than Trump.

As Gabriella said, yes Trump is unrefined, bullish and brash, but by no means the worst the royals have entertained.

He has succeeded where others have failed - notably in securing a meeting with the dreadful Kim Jon Un.
