Trump, Theresa May to meet on sidelines of Davos summit

Trump is scheduled to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May at the forum to discuss bilateral relations, according to the White House. "In insulting the homeland of their ancestors - who had no say in the genocide and atrocity that was slavery - you have again violated the dignity of those with roots in Africa‚ wherever they are in the world‚" Mohale added. Trump will be the first sitting USA president to attend in person since Bill Clinton in 2000.

The joint announcement from Downing Street and the White House was made after reports emerged suggesting Mr Trump would snub Mrs May at the event.

The world leaders also had two subsequent meetings at the G7 summit in Sicily in may and at the G20 summit in Hamburg in July.

Trump said last week that he "canceled" a visit to London to formally open the new US embassy because the old site had been sold for "peanuts" and the new building, in an "off location", was a "bad deal".

"His visit next month would without doubt have been met by mass peaceful protests".

In fact the plan was first reported in October 2008, when George W Bush was still president.

Mayor Sadiq Khan welcomed his decision no to come to London, stating that president Donald Trump has "got the message" that Londoners oppose his views and policies as he cancelled a planned visit to the capital.

Since a state visit for the U.S. president was agreed, shortly after his inauguration, Trump has faced a barrage of criticism in the UK. "We will showcase India's progress while also giving a taste of our exquisite cuisine and Indian culture and heritage", Abhishek said.
