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

Mr Trump urged PM Theresa May to "fix it" for him during a private phone call to plan his state visit - which has been delayed until next year.

The US President was scheduled to take part in a state visit to the United Kingdom later this year but no set date has been announced and there was no mention in the Queen's Speech.

The Sun on Sunday said it had now obtained a transcript of their telephone conversation in which Mr Trump said: "I haven't had great coverage out there lately, Theresa".

May's awkward response: "Well, you know what the British press are like".

However, Trump furthered his brazen plea.

One of the Sun's sources said that May "tried to explain she has no power to dictate how newspapers and media might decide to cover his visit".

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. Now he is back with another demand of great press coverage and public acceptance.

Prime Minister Theresa May had previously invited President Trump to visit Britain in January, sparking a backlash which saw almost two million people sign an online petition against the state welcome. Downing Street declined to comment on the story, the Sun on Sunday reported, and was not immediately available for comment when contacted by CNBC.

Mrs May was widely criticised for bestowing the honour of a State visit on such a controversial figure so early in his presidency when she met Mr Trump for the first time in the White House in January.
