Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note

Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note

London Mayor Sadiq Khan - who has had a particularly contentious relationship with President Trump - approved protesters' use of a "Trump baby" blimp during the president's visit to Great Britain.

Mr Corbyn said that the United States president's policies were putting the lives of millions of people at risk.

On Friday, Trump will meet May and her newly appointed Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt at the prime minister's countryside retreat, Chequers. Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby.

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead, from the National Police Coordination Centre, said: "Police forces are working together on a significant, multi-faceted security operation supporting the presidential visit to the UK".

And with a giant "Trump Baby" balloon set to fly in the air over multiple demonstrations, US officials urged Americans to "keep a low profile" in the English capital.

Trump flew in after a fraught North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels where he piled pressure on allies to double their defence spending.

"Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there".

Widespread protests opposing President Trump's stay begin Thursday evening and continue through Friday night.

Mr Mundell said he is looking forward to welcoming the president.

"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.

Mr Trump with meet with UK Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen. I'm certainly going to Turnberry and I'll see him there.

Trump has expressed admiration for Churchill even as the president's critics contend that the parallels between the two leaders are limited, and even contradictory.

"And they agree with me on immigration - that's why you have Brexit in the first place, because of immigration".

Protesters are set to descend on the Regent's Park residence, with plans to blare out recordings of children crying for their parents at United States detention centres.

The president is then set to take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before heading to Scotland and the rolling green landscape of his golf course.

"It is in the interests of the U.K.to stand up and take a firm moral stance", said Zoe Gardner, a researcher and spokesperson of the Stop Trump Coalition, which is organizing protests this week in cities across the country.
