Donald Trump urges Theresa May to fix 'better reception' for UK trip

PA SPECIAL RELATIONSHIP Theresa May has been urged to make sure Trump is welcomed to the UK

Trump is deeply unpopular in Britain, and he would probably face wide-scale protests during a visit to the country.

President Donald Trump loves being lavished with attention and praise.

Now, Trump reportedly wants the same treatment from British Prime Minister Theresa May.

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Trump's state visit to the country, initially planned for this year, will be delayed until next year.

The President's s state visit to Britain was kicked into the long grass last month after it was left out of the Queen's Speech.

President Donald Trump, facing resistance, bad press, and protests of a potential United Kingdom visit, has vowed to postpone a trip until Prime Minister Theresa May can "fix" a "better reception", according to "The Sun".

He said: "I still want to come, but I'm in no rush".

"I haven't had great coverage out there lately, Theresa", Trump reportedly told May.

May replied stiffly, "Well, you know what the British press are like".

However, Trump furthered his brazen plea.

"When I know I'm going to get a better reception, I'll come and not before", he said during the call.

A political insider added: 'She tried to explain she has no power to dictate how newspapers and media might decide to cover his visit. Now he is back with another demand of great press coverage and public acceptance.

Almost two million Britons have signed an online petition that calls on the UK Parliament to ban Trump from visiting the country.

Downing Street has not commented on the story.

The White House did not return a request for comment.
