Donald Trump has reportedly told Britain’s Prime Minister, Theresa May, he will postpone his state trip to England if there will be wide spread public protests against his visit.

According to The Guardian Trump announced the news to Prime Minister May over the last several weeks via telephone, revealing he will not visit England until “the British public supports him coming.”

Prime Minister May extended an invite to Trump and wife Melania to visit London just seven days after his inauguration and The Guardian reports May was “surprised” when she received the change of heart telephone call.

A Downing Street spokesperson told The Guardian in a statement, “We aren’t going to comment on speculation about the contents of private phone conversations. The Queen extended an invitation to President Trump to visit the UK and there is no change to those plans.”
