Following his latest string of victories in primaries and the successive campaign suspensions by two remaining rivals, billionaire real estate mogul Trump is on a clear path to secure the Republican nomination in the presidential race.
"Knowing the grueling nature of the primaries and what you have to go through, anyone who makes it through that extraordinary contest, leads the party into a general election, you know, certainly deserves our respect," Cameron said at a televised press conference.
The British press reported late on Wednesday that Trump is "likely" to visit London in August for a Republican fundraising drive, where he is expected to meet opposition Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn. Downing Street said this week Cameron would not withdraw his comments about Trump.
A petition to ban Trump from entering the United Kingdom that gathered more than the 100,000 signatures needed for parliamentary review was rejected on grounds that the ban would fuel media attention garnered by the presumptive nominee and his controversial remarks.
