London awaits Trump's visit, braces for protests

Permission has already been granted for the 20ft high balloon caricature to be flown over central London on Friday, as Donald Trump arrives in the UK. "I think they agree with me on immigration", Trump said. I think they like me a lot in the United Kingdom.

"'Darkest Hour' would appeal to Trump because it combines courageous self-direction, standing up to the old order, with an nearly mystic sense of speaking for the people", Gingrich said in an email.

'I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly, ' he said.

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

But the president will avoid London nearly entirely during his trip, which has been characterised as an attempt to avoid humiliation over the planned protests surrounding his visit.

The poll conducted this week said 63 per cent found Trump racist, and 74 per cent said he was sexist.

Many thousands of Britons are expected to protest against Mr Trump in London and other cities.

"Now more than ever we have a responsibility to stand up for our values and ensure our voice is heard around the world", he wrote in London's Evening Standard newspaper.

May will host Trump and tuxedo-clad government ministers and representatives of fund managers BlackRock and Blackstone Group, as well as Arup and drinks manufacturer Diageo, for a dinner of Scottish salmon, beef and strawberries and clotted cream ice cream to discuss post-Brexit trade.

"The president knows how important the special relationship is firsthand and that's why the bust of Churchill is actually in the Oval Office as we speak".

Police say she caused confusion when she tried to drop of an Infiniti - not the Nissan she originally rented. The owner of the stolen Infiniti, an elderly man, had accidently left his key fob in the vehicle.

But Brexit champion Nigel Farage predicted there would be a "real clash" on Brexit.

"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".

"With a lot of resignations", Trump told a news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Trump's trip is part of a working visit and not a state visit, an invitation to which was extended to him personally by May just days after his inauguration.

Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and the official tasked with overseeing the country's exit from the European Union both resigned earlier this week.

The US president's brash style and hardline "America First" policies have caused consternation across Britain's political spectrum and society.

Although he will visit the U.S. ambassador's residence, he is largely avoiding central London, where the largest protests are expected Friday.

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 which will focus on Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and Middle East.

But it's not simply the protesters, who are expected to dog Mr. Trump throughout his visit, including his weekend in Scotland, but his fraught relationship with political leaders accustomed to harmonious exchanges with USA leaders, a tradition of unity that goes back at least to the vital World War II partnership of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.

Mr Trump will spend the weekend in Scotland where he has two golf courses and plans to play at least once.
