The American ambassador could make a trip to Lichfield after accepting an invitation from the city’s MP.
Michael Fabricant made the offer to Woody Johnson in an article in the Telegraph.
And now the US ambassador has said in Twitter he would welcome the visit, together with a chance to stop off and pay his respects at the National Memorial Arboretum in Alrewas.
Mr Fabricant said: “There are powerful bonds of history, a common language and culture as well as a legal system born from the same heritage that bind the United Kingdom and the United States together.
“I hope a date can soon be found when His Excellency the ambassador can visit Lichfield and the National Memorial Arboretum.
“He is an enthusiastic supporter of all things British.
“As the UK leaves the European Union, it is important that we strengthen existing ties with the United States and the Commonwealth.
“These are exciting times for the future of our nation.”
