Word out of England today was that he wouldn't be visiting our very special ally as long as there's a chance of mass protests. Chances of those are high just about everywhere in the world, except perhaps North Korea and Russia.

Where was Trump? Playing golf. Earlier this week, he met with groups opposed to equal treatment of gay people.
