Downing Street said he will hold "bilateral talks with the Prime Minister during his visit".

It's not known yet where he'll visit, with further details to be set out in due course.”

Theresa May was the first foreign leader to meet with the Republican after his inauguration.

British Ambassador to the US Kim Darroch said he was "delighted" with the announcement.

The news comes days after President Trump hosted French president Emmanuel Macron, where he described the country's relationship as "very special".

The trip is only being billed as a "working visit" rather than an official state one.

Mr Trump has been urged to stay away from London because there of a risk of "major protests, crime and disorder".
