Trump apparently thinks he can make a 'sneak' UK visit, British protesters beg to differ

Trump apparently thinks he can make a 'sneak' UK visit, British protesters beg to differTrump called, Britain responded.  Reports that the U.S. president is planning a "snap visit" to the UK in the next two weeks have protesters smelling blood and readying on social media for all-out demonstrations.  SEE ALSO: J.K. Rowling and Stephen King join forces to troll Donald Trump If you recall, Trump postponed his visit, which was due to take place over the summer, over fears that it could be disrupted by mass street protests.  After Prime Minister Theresa May invited him for a visit when he was just seven days into office, activists formed the Stop Trump coalition and pledged the largest demonstration in UK history.  A petition calling for the UK government to block the U.S. president gathered more than 1 million signatures in less than 48 hours. In June, after the UK general elections, Trump told May he does not want to go forward with a planned state visit to the U.K. until the public supports him coming. For these reasons, Whitehall sources just claimed final confirmation to a Trump's visit to Turnberry — his golf resort In Scotland — and Downing Street would be given just 24 hours' notice "to minimise the risk of disruption." On Monday morning, a spokesman for May told Sky News the government was unaware of any plans for Trump to visit the UK in the next few weeks. But it's still safe to say, British people weren't impressed by these reports, and vehemently stressed their ability to swiftly organise a mass protest:  Donald Trump is planning to sneak into Britain to avoid protests.
