Trump Begins Europe Trip in Britain

VOA File: President Donald Trump salutes an honor guard as he and first lady Melania Trump arrive at Stansted Airport in England, June 3, 2019 at the start of a three day state visit to Britain.

U.S. President Donald Trump is in Britain for a two-day visit that includes meeting with the royal family, a state dinner and talks with outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May.

As he departed the White House, Trump said his trip would be “very interesting” and that he thinks the United States and Britain have an opportunity to work out a “very big trade deal” in the near future.
