"Calling all drag kings, queens, queers and our allies to march against President Donald Trumps UK visit", the event page reads. TIME reports that it won't be happening, while BBC says it is "likely" to happen - and that if they do meet, it will either be at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle.

Neither the White House nor Downing Street has said where Trump will visit.

The claim came as Mr Johnson shrugged off the prospect of mass protests against Mr Trump when he visits the United Kingdom on July 13.

Though the stated objective of the visit is to hold meetings with May, the Telegraph reported that Trump will also meet with Queen Elizabeth, which would have been part of an official state visit.

It will therefore not include an official banquet at Buckingham Palace nor a carriage procession up the Mall, but it will include bilateral talks with Mrs May.

Maz Saleem, from Stand Up to Trump, said: "Donald Trump is an open racist and sexist, a volatile and risky character who seems set on taking the West into further wars".

The proposal called for a "student-centered" distribution model to replace the state's school finance formula created in 1994. The #RedForEd walkouts will leave some 840,000 Arizona students out of school on Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

It would be Mr Trump's first trip to this country since he was elected in November 2016.

Will the queen be included in this Trump U.K. visit? That state visit will be put off a little bit but maybe next year he will do that. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Thursday the president will go in July after months of back-and-forth and at least one canceled trip.

Even London Mayor Sadiq Khan got in on the action, saying in a tweet that Trump "will see that Londoners hold their liberal values of freedom of speech very dear".

We want to send a clear message to Trump and May that racist, sexist, pro-big business politics, created to stoke division within the working class and shore up the profits of the super-rich, will not go unanswered.

They told the president the political and media establishment in London was "far out of touch" with the feelings of ordinary people outside the capital, many of whom "strongly support" his leadership.

"But I think in the end people are starting to. realise that where he is going is a good direction".
