On Brexit negotiations: Not convinced by the UK's handling of the talks, Trump said he would take a "tougher" approach with Brussels.

Earlier this week, Trump said it was "up to the people" whether the prime minister stayed on after two senior Cabinet ministers resigned within hours over her Brexit policy.

He said: "The people voted to break it up so I would imagine that's what they would do, but maybe they're taking a different route - I don't know if that is what they voted for".

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the US and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", May said in a statement.

"From the public, the welcome will be far from warm", he told lawmakers on Wednesday, noting there would be protests across the country against Trump's "abysmal record on human rights, his repugnant attitude towards women and his disgusting treatment of minorities".

Donald Trump's upcoming visit to Scotland is an opportunity for the country to "strengthen vital links" with one of its most important allies, the UK Government minister who will greet him has said.

While Mr Johnson may now be a backbencher, Mr Trump said he hoped he would still see the former foreign minister - another blow to the fragile position of Mrs May. I think they agree with me on immigration'. "I'm very strong on immigration".

Tens of thousands of people are expected to protest against the president in London on Thursday and Friday - and in Glasgow on Saturday.

"And me mate said "If you call it the Trump Arms I'll organise the party". But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Mr. Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to the USA leader's presence.

Similar protests are planned on Thursday evening outside the United States ambassador's home at Regent's Park and in Scotland when Mr Trump visits on Saturday. Both those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders, and Trump unilaterally trashed them.

But Drew, an American student who lives here in the United Kingdom, won't be among the demonstrators.

When he arrives today, Trump will be taken to Blenheim Palace, the 300-year-old birthplace of Churchill.

Russia, Brexit and the Middle East are set to top the agenda.

From there, Trump and his wife Melania are expected to travel to Windsor to meet Queen Elizabeth.

May welcomed the summit and said it could help address "malign activity" by Russian Federation.
