No shortage of response on Twitter, as you’d expect, and here are 17 of our favourites.
Trump’s state visit seems to be part of a long-term government strategy to keep national morale at rock bottom.

Instead of Trump doing a state visit can someone just send him to Harry Potter world in Orlando and tell him it's London and save us all the bother

Deluded, dishonest, xenophobic, narcissistic, Donald Trump is no friend of Britain. He is not fit to hold public office, let alone worthy of our country's highest honours and a banquet with the Queen. Theresa May is selling out the UK to a serial liar and a cheat. #TrumpUKVisit https://t.co/2onIyKU8ZO

I'd be willing to bet a reasonable sum of money that this timing is genuinely because he thinks the D in D-Day stands for 'Donald' pic.twitter.com/lSSntBDlXd

Maybe we can combine it with Brexit for maximum bleakness. Basically the 2012 London Olympics but the opposite. https://t.co/fKqdhv8n5X
