Trump Visits the U.K. at a Divisive Time
President Trump opened his State visit to Great Britain this Monday with ceremonial proceedings before the Queen and Prince Charles. Trump’s visit comes as Britain is suffering through a political and ideological schism the likes of which it has not seen since the Luftwaffe bombs were falling through percussive mornings and Churchill was holding the nation together by his fingernails. Will Boris Johnson, who recently received Trump’s favor, emerge as the leader to supplant Theresa May? Will that goddamn Baby float reappear? Will Trump win favor with the old European guard?
