Trump to visit UK again for top Nato meeting

first visit

DONALD TRUMP is expected to return to Britain in December for a Nato summit.

The US president, who has repeatedly railed against the military alliance, will meet heads of state in London, Nato secretary general Jens Stoltenberg said.

It will be Mr Trump’s second visit to Britain since his election. The announcement was met with warnings on social media of a repeat of last July’s protests when the president avoided the capital over security concerns.

Mr Stoltenberg said: ‘The meeting will be an opportunity for allied heads of state and government to address the security challenges we face now and in the future.’

Theresa May said she is ‘very pleased’ the UK has been asked to host the event in Nato’s 70th anniversary year.

Mr Trump criticised Nato when he pressed allies to pledge billions more in defence spending. In his State of the Union address he said the US had been ‘treated very unfairly by friends of ours, members of Nato’ over a period of years.

Policing his four-day visit in July cost £14.2million, figures obtained by the Press Association showed this week.
