President Donald Trump will visit Great Britain on February 26-27, The Times reported on Sunday.

Despite statements by British Prime Minister Theresa May that no date has been set for Trump's first visit to the UK since entering the White House, those familiar with the plans said the trip has been penciled in the diary for at least 10 days.

Trump's arrival is expected to coincide with the opening of the new American embassy in London.

The visit remains unchanged despite outrage in Great Britain over Trump's retweets of hate propaganda by the far-right Britain First to his more than 44 million followers earlier this week, the Mirror reported.

The president's retweets, fueled by his refusal to apologize and subsequent further criticism of the British government, spurred harsh criticism from many in the UK.

Some of those condemning Trump said that a visit to the UK by the president should be cancelled.

Trump's presence in Great Britain is not expected to be a full state visit and he will not meet with the queen, according to reports.

There have also been reports that the president's visit could be switched from London to the Midlands in order to avoid a public backlash in the capital.

Following the reports that a visit has been scheduled, the Stop Trump group in Britain urged people to join what organizers hope will be the "biggest demonstration in British history," the Evening Standard reported.

The protest organizers vowed that "If Donald Trump attempts to sneak into the UK to open the US Embassy on 26/27th February 2018 and also pop into see Theresa May at Downing Street, he will be met by a million of us attempting a citizens arrest of him for incitement to racial hatred."
