Theresa May has claimed Trump is coming to the UK later this year
The Prime Minister is due to visit the White House this Friday, making her the first foreign leader to pay a visit to the 45th US President.
The two leaders are due to discuss the trading agreement between the US and the UK, as well as issues such as Syria and NATO.
But as the pair seek to collaborate on key global issues, Mrs May says she expects President Trump to pay a state visit to the UK.
She said she would “look forward to welcoming president Trump some time this year if that is possible”.

She added: “There will be many issues for us to talk about because obviously the special relationship between the US and the UK has been strong for many years.”
Following the Women’s March against Trump’s presidency in London on Saturday, which was attended by 100,000 people, Mrs May has insisted she finds some of the President’s comments about women “unacceptable”.
Mrs May told the BBC’s Andrew Marr show: “I’ve already said that some of the comments Donald Trump has made in relation to women are unacceptable.
She added: “When I sit down the biggest statement that will be made about the role of women is the fact that I will be there as a female Prime Minister.”
Theresa May insists she is not afraid to stand up to Donald Trump
The Prime Minister has also insisted she is not afraid to stand up to the Republican.
She said: “Whenever there is something that I find unacceptable, I won’t be afraid to say that to Donald Trump.”
But Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said he hopes the Prime Minister will be outspoken in her meeting with Mr Trump.
He said: “I would hope when she meets Donald Trump she will, in no uncertain terms, tell him his misogyny during the election campaign, the way in which he described Muslim people and others of different faiths, the way in which he proposes to build a wall between his country and Mexico, is simply not acceptable.”
