Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note

London pub renames itself The Trump Arms ahead of presidential visit Trump visit brings biggest police operation since UK riots

The US President touched down in London Stansted Airport, Essex, at 1.50pm BST with his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, after arriving from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

The largest demonstration is expected in central London on Friday where a giant "Trump baby" balloon will fly close to Parliament after being given the go-ahead by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

While tens of thousands of Brits are set to protest Donald Trump's visit on Thursday, one pub in west London will be welcoming him with open arms.

President Trump is scheduled to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May, who wants a post-Brexit trade deal, days after President Trump said the United Kingdom was in "turmoil".

Demonstrators will gather near Chequers where Theresa May and Donald Trump will hold a lunch.

Police said the blimp would not be allowed at the course as an air exclusion zone was in place during the president's visit.

The US embassy's alert to American citizens was an unusual step, CNN reported.

U.S. President Donald Trump checks time prior to a dinner at the Art and History Museum at the Parc du Cinquantenaire during the NATO Summit in Brussels, Belgium July 11, 2018. The president's Scots heritage is well known, and I hope he enjoys his visit to Scotland'.

Asked about his views on the UK's plans for Brexit, Trump said: 'I would say Brexit is Brexit.

"The UK loves me, in fact my mother was from the UK, they love me there even if they are not treating us well with trades, but they will", he said. A spokesperson for Downing Street told i the First Lady will be spending time with veterans and school children at a location in London on Friday morning, although they could not comment on where this visit would take place.

"So that was the full planning that went into it - 10 pints of stout and, you know, late-night conversation."

May will seek to put the tensions behind her when she hosts Trump later Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of World War II prime minister Winston Churchill.

Will Trump endorse Theresa May's leadership?

Trump next heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with the queen, as protesters stage a mass demonstration in London.

The state visit was never actually scheduled - there has been fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning among other things that Mr. Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the US ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park, rather than at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.
