Latest protests, baby blimp

During a press conference before departing the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit for the U.K., Trump was asked how he feels about the planned protests.

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.

President Trump said the British people "voted to break it up, so I imagine that " s what they " ll do" and "Brexit is Brexit".

Trump's visit to the United Kingdom, the 12th US President to make such a tour, comes amid what he described as "turmoil" for the United Kingdom government, as Prime Minister May faces down a rebellion from within her own party over her Brexit strategy.

Trump has always been a Brexit supporter and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after Brexit, something heralded by eurosceptics as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc. He also suggested that he might speak to his "friend" Mr Johnson, who had been due to attend a dinner with the president and business executives on Thursday evening. The phrase "special relationship" was made famous by Prime Minister Winston Churchill in a speech in Missouri in 1946, after the two countries fought shoulder to shoulder in World War II.

"There will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", she said.

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".

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

Some 77 per cent of Britons have an unfavourable view of Trump, according to a poll by YouGov with 1,648 respondents.

He said: 'They like me a lot in the UK. "I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly, whatever they work out". "I'm very strong on immigration".

Thousands of protesters are set to line the streets to demonstrate against Donald Trump's visit as the US President landed in Britain.

The U.S. Embassy has warned U.S. citizens to keep a low profile during the visit because of the protests, the sort of warning usually issued in more volatile locations.

One such protest will entail a 19-foot-high orange balloon shaped like Trump as a baby, which London Mayor Sadiq Khan - who's feuded with the president - approved under "the right to peaceful protest".

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