LONDON (Reuters) - There has been no change to plans for U.S. President Donald Trump’s state visit to Britain, Prime Minister Theresa May’s office said on Sunday, after the Guardian reported the trip had been postponed.

The newspaper, citing an unnamed adviser at May’s office, said Trump had told May by telephone in recent weeks that he did not want to come until the British public supported his visit.

“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,” a spokeswoman for May’s office said.
