    Cameron's office confirms no invite was extended to Donald Trump to visit London

    UK on Donald Trump invite to 10 Downing St: Not just yet

    A spokesman for David Cameron said the British PM would not issue formal invites to US presidential

    Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump said on Friday (Saturday NZ Time) that British Prime Minister David Cameron had asked him to visit, but a UK spokesman said no invitation had been extended.

    The apparent crossed signals were the latest sign of tension between the presumptive Republican Party nominee and the leader of a major US ally, who has criticised Trump's call for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States.

    Trump, in a morning interview with MSNBC, said Cameron extended the invitation to visit 10 Downing Street two days ago and that he "might do it." He gave no other details.

    Republican US presidential candidate Donald Trump claimed British PM David Cameron had invited him to
    visit 10 Downing Street.

    A spokesman for Cameron's office said it was a longstanding practice for the prime minister to meet with the Republican and Democrat presidential nominees if they visited Britain.

    "Given the parties have yet to choose their nominees, there are no confirmed dates for this," the spokesman said.

    However, a Downing Street source said a formal invite would not be sent out to presidential candidates.

    Trump's comments followed a transatlantic exchange between the two men over Cameron's criticism.

    In December, Cameron called Trump "divisive, stupid and wrong" and suggested Trump would unite Britain against him if he visited the United Kingdom.

    After Trump clinched his party's nomination this month, Cameron acknowledged the achievement but said he stood by his earlier comments and would not apologise.

    Trump fired back this week, saying on Monday (Tuesday NZT) that he was likely not to have a good relationship with Cameron. But the next day he said he expected to have "a good relationship" and on Friday (Saturday NZT) Trump said Cameron had invited him to London.

    "I will do just fine with David Cameron. I think he's a nice guy. I will do just fine," Trump told MSNBC. "But they have asked me to visit 10 Downing Street - and I might do it."

    Cameron has said he will work with the winner of the November 8 US presidential election and is committed to maintaining the special US-UK relationship, his spokesman has said.

    Trump's proposed ban also drew criticism from Sadiq Khan, who was elected mayor of London this month and is the first Muslim to hold the post. Khan said last week that Trump's "ignorant view of Islam could make both our countries less safe."

    Not so fast, Donald

    I don't think too many American voters care what David Cameron thinks and frankly some of US would prefer he stay where he is and our dear Mr. Trump stay safe in the White House. They can tweet to each other or talk on the phone or send letters or emails and save the taxpayers of both countries a bunch of money. After all, there's really nothing on our immediate agenda that even involves Great Britain. They have nothing to do with our immigration problem, nothing to do with our military and infrastructure improvements, they have nothing to do with most of our free trade treason issues, or our healthcare and education issues. Issues like NATO and terrorism are really the only 2 I can think of and we already have a lot of government officials who handle stuff like that through the State Department, and Trump will have good people in the State Department to meet with their people on these issues.

    So if Globalist Cameron wants to try to snub our next President, I say that's fine, no skin off our noses.
