Trump warns he won't visit United Kingdom until he gets 'better reception'

Donald Trump and Theresa May

PA HISTORIC Theresa May was the first leader to meet Donald Trump at the White House in January

President Donald Trump reportedly urged U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May to ensure he gets a warm welcome in Britain for his state visit-warning that he would not visit the country until he had been given guarantees, a British newspaper reported on Sunday.

"I still want to come, but I'm in no rush", Trump said.

Both the world leaders were talking about Trump's impending state visit when he reportedly mentioned he was concerned about having bad press in the United Kingdom.

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Trump's state visit to the country, initially planned for this year, will be delayed until next year.

"I haven't had great coverage out there lately, Theresa", Trump reportedly said, before May replied: "Well, you know what the British press are like".

However, Trump furthered his brazen plea.

The report claims that Milan want to take him on a two-year loan spell for €7 million, with the 'option to buy in 2019. Biglia has signed a three-year contract with Milan, as reported by the club's official website .

According to The Sun, he added: 'When I know I'm going to get a better reception, I'll come and not before'.

It was originally reported last month that Mr Trump had informed Mrs May that he did not want to go ahead with the visit if there were likely to be large-scale protests.

But the possibility of Trump winning over Britons is highly unlikely.

Trump, the source said, simply would not agree on a date for a state visit until "people support him coming".

"Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen", reads the petition. White House also has not responded to requests for a comment.
