At least one person is confident President Donald Trump will make his way to the U.K. next year.

The U.S. ambassador to Britain said in a radio interview with the BBC he "absolutely" thinks Trump will visit in 2018, despite the president's Twitter feud with Prime Minister Theresa May.

"Well, I think a lot of that stuff was probably misinterpreted," Ambassador Woody Johnson said.

Things between Trump and May have been tense since he retweeted anti-Muslim videos posted by a British far-right group.

May criticized Trump's decision, and he responded by attacking her on Twitter.

According to the BBC, if Trump does visit the U.K., it will likely be a working trip and not an official state visit.
