Queen stresses shared values as US President Trump visits UK

The NHS "will be on the table" in a post-Brexit trade deal between America and the UK, Donald Trump has insisted.

A key area of discord between the allies has been Britain's preliminary decision to allow Huawei a restricted role in building parts of its 5G network.

Mr Farage was pictured being driven into the US Ambassador's residence at Winfield House, where Mr Trump is staying during his three-day state visit. He said he did not know her timings but that she should "stick around". Teams of negotiators from the United States and Britain have been discussing a possible trade deal, but British officials said Tuesday that those discussions were in the early stages and nothing could be signed until after Britain left the European Union, which is now slated for October 31.

"It is a great partnership, but I think it's a partnership that we can take even further", she said. Large protests are expected during the U.S. president's visit, as was the case during his trip previous year.

Following Tuesday's focus on business and trade, Trump will use the next two days to mark the 75th anniversary of the June 6, 1944, D-Day landing, likely the last significant commemoration most veterans of the battle will see.

The President took to Twitter to call Mr Khan a "stone cold loser" for boycotting the state visit, adding the Mayor had done a "terrible job".

On a trip to Britain past year, Trump shocked the British political establishment by hammering May over Brexit and praising rivals, but on Tuesday the had only warm words for the prime minister.

Impersonator Phil Ball said the US President was "not an ethical person" who would look to take advantage of the United Kingdom in any future trade deal between the two nations post-Brexit.

Around 100 activists counted down from 10 to one for the launch of the blimp, which was first used during Trump's visit to London past year.

Tim Baker was selling toilet rolls with images of Trump printed o n and said people were either "very offended" on "in hysterics" because of his product.

Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, was among those who addressed the crowds. "From the Second World War to today, her majesty has stood as a constant symbol of these priceless traditions", Trump said of the Queen at the event, according to People.

Earlier, Trump locked horns with London Mayor Sadiq Khan who made clear his displeasure at the USA president being afforded a state visit.

The heir to the throne Prince Charles and his wife Camilla will attend on behalf of the queen.

Thousands gathered in London on Tuesday to protest against US President Donald Trump while he is on a state visit to the UK. In June 2017 Trump announced that the USA was pulling out of the 2015 Agreement, which fights global warming by accelerating investments needed for a sustainable low carbon future.
