1st LD: Trump starts United Kingdom visit amid protests

Keep low profile’ – US Embassy warns citizens ahead of Trump UK visit protests

Trump and Melania will spend Thursday night at Winfield House in Regent's Park, which is the US Ambassador's residence in London.

"I don't get to see him almost as much as I used to get to see him and I'm excited to spend a couple of days with him - we're going to have a great time".

A giant inflatable "Trump baby" will be taken to Scotland to coincide with the USA president's visit over the weekend.

"For a USA president who retweets far-right Britain First propaganda, insults Londoners at times of tragedy, and refuses to condemn white supremacist marches at home, this insult is well deserved" said Labour MP David Lammy.

I'm certainly going to Turnberry and I'll see him there.

But, while the balloon has led to significant media coverage in both the United Kingdom and the U.S., Ambassador Woody Johnson said in an interview with BBC Radio 4 that he sees the balloon as being out of touch with the broader views of the British public.

A giant six-metre-high blimp of Trump depicted as an orange baby in nappies is also expected to fly over the capital.

Trump added that the U.K.is a "pretty hot spot", given the recent upheaval in the government there. 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'.

May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump there, attended by senior ministers and about 100 business leaders, including from Blackstone group, Blackrock, Diageo, McLaren and Arup.

Asked in Brussels about the massive demonstrations expected at the next stop of his European trip, Mr. Trump said it was "fine" that there were protests planned. "If a balloon flying over London makes people laugh, I think that's absolutely worth it", she says.

The U.S. embassy has also responded in kind, issuing a warning to American citizens to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution" during Trump's visit.

What is Donald Trump's schedule? "Are you honestly saying that the right to protest, the right to assemble, the right to free speech is limited by the ridicule it might cause to someone else?"

Over a lunch of Dover sole, lamb and lemon meringue pie, the leaders will discuss Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.

The President is also due to travel to Scotland, where he owns two golf courses and Scotland's interim police chief has said more than 5,000 officers would be needed for to cover the trip, including specialist riot and armed units.

Theresa May will host the United States president and his wife Melania days after he said the UK was in "turmoil" following the Cabinet resignations triggered by the Prime Minister's Brexit plans.

She will then head to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth II in the afternoon.

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence.
