Trump wants Theresa May to 'fix' a warm welcome for him

It comes after Mr Trump's planned trip was postponed until next year with two million people signing a petition calling for it to be axed

For instance, even before he won the election, he made comments about Saudi Arabia organizing a grand reception for him, which is exactly what the kingdom did when the commander-in-chief landed on its tarmac during his first tour as the USA president to the Middle East.

According to the British tabloid, May explained to Trump that she had no control over what the British media report about him.

President Donald Trump reportedly offered up an ultimatum to British PM Theresa May in a private phone conversation: Fix it or forget about it.

A transcript of the chat, seen by senior diplomats and leaked to the publication, revealed that he was concerned about negative press coverage in the United Kingdom.

"I haven't had great coverage out there lately, Theresa", Mr Trump told Ms May, according to a transcript of the conversation seen by senior diplomats.

May's awkward response: "Well, you know what the British press are like".

Originally, Trump was scheduled for his U.K. State visit this year, but it was delayed until the next.

However, Trump furthered his brazen plea. Now he is back with another demand of great press coverage and public acceptance.

The White House did not return a request for comment.

Almost two million Britons have signed an online petition that calls on the UK Parliament to ban Trump from visiting the country.

Prime Minister Theresa May had previously invited President Trump to visit Britain in January, sparking a backlash which saw almost two million people sign an online petition against the state welcome.
