Donald Trump’s July 2018 UK visit: Yes, he’s going to meet the Queen, eat at Blenheim Palace, check out Chequers and visit Scotland

Friday 6 July 2018 2:23 pm But before he flies off into the sunset, Trump will be meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle, making him the 12th US President to do so during her 66 years on the throne. She is said to have been a big fan of Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama, so it’s not clear how he will win HRH over. Perhaps they will discuss the manners of Chinese officials.The Trumps will then head to Scotland where they will spend the weekend, while the UK will spend £5m on the pleasure. Donald Trump’s July 2018 UK visit: Yes, he’s going to meet the Queen, eat at Blenheim Palace, check out Chequers and visit Scotland whatsapp Alongside the Prime Minister guests are said to include Sir Jim Ratcliffe, founder of Ineos, Larry Fink, head of BlackRock, and Alex Gorsky, chief executive of Johnson & Johnson.It is thought that neither London mayor Sadiq Khan nor former First Minister of Scotland Alex Salmond are thought to be on the guest list.Those who are will be treated to a military ceremony performed by the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards. The bands will play the Liberty Fanfare, Amazing Grace, and the National Emblem. During dinner, the Countess of Wessex’s Orchestra will perform “a series of classic British and American hits”.The next day, Trump will be shown “a demonstration of the UK’s cutting edge military capabilities” – perhaps as this sort of thing seems to win him over – and he will travel with May to Chequers for “substantive bilateral talks on a range of foreign policy issues”, thought to include the US’ unilateral decision to impose tariffs on the EU and other allies. No doubt May is eager to return to the site of her most recent Cabinet ding-dong.Russia is also likely to come up in conversation, not least because Trump is due to meet President Vladimir Putin for their first official summit in Helsinki.

Aberdeen puts on the pedal cleats for a three year cycle deal

first_img Express KCS ABERDEEN Asset Management made its first foray into the cycling arena yesterday with a maiden sponsorship of a pro-cycling team. The funds house will augment its famous sponsorship of Cowes Week – the glitzy week of sailing during August – with a three year deal to sponsor NFTO (Not For The Ordinary), the UK’s number one cycling team. “This is the first time we’ve worked with a cycling team,” Aberdeen chief executive Martin Gilbert said. “The profile of and participation in the sport has grown massively in recent years and we have a long track record of supporting UK sports people from the grassroots up to professional.” “We couldn’t have found a more ambitious and forward-thinking company to get onboard and support our aspirations,” NFTO team founder and owner John Wood said.■ Netflix chief executive Reed Hastings has a simple message to HBO as the cable TV giant steps into the online streaming market: bring it on. The American billionaire also sits on the board of Facebook founded Netflix in 1997 originally as a rental-by-post DVD service before moulding it into the dominant player in the streaming world. Last week the company announced it has surpassed more than 60m subscribers, a figure that pleased investors as shares soared even in spite of a 55 per cent drop in profits.In a bid to grab its share of the streaming pie, HBO announced its own over-the-top streaming service last year, HBO Now. The cable channel’s high-end productions have made the company millions in DVD sales but have proved to be equally popular on illegal streaming and torrent sites. With both companies now operating in the streaming market and producing some of the most popular and respected TV shows of the day, Hastings predicted the two companies will be slugging it out for dominance like two famous sporting rivals in an interview with The New York Times. “It will be like the Yankees and the Red Sox. I predict HBO will do the best creative work of their lives in the next 10 years because they are on war footing. They haven’t really had a challenge for a long time, and now they do. It’s going to spur us both on to incredible work,” Hastings said. Let’s hope one of them hits a home run.
