LONDON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump could possibly come to Britain for a working visit in July, Sky News reported on Wednesday, saying details of the trip were expected to be announced in the next few days.

A working visit would be more low-key than a full state visit. Prime Minister Theresa May invited Trump for a state visit when she went to Washington in January 2017, prompting protests, and a date for the visit has never been set.

A spokesman for May declined to comment on the Sky story, but said discussions are ongoing about Trump’s visit and that it is expected later this year.
