When Khan wisely and calmly said that there was "no reason to be alarmed" by the visibly increased security presence in the streets of London after the London Bridge attacks, Trump spun it as Khan trying to minimise the threat of the attacks - but didn't challenge Theresa May when she said in response to the same attacks that "everybody needs to go about their lives as they normally would". Some politicians even called on the Scottish government to bar Trump from landing at Glasgow Prestwick Airport, saying the move would be a fitting protest of the president's travel ban, which targets several Muslim-majority countries, The Telegraph reported. Although he will visit the USA ambassador's residence, he is largely avoiding central London, where the largest protests are expected Friday.

It all made for a perplexing and politically tricky visit for Ms.

The Mirror goes large with a picture of the United States president posing somewhat smugly in Winston Churchill's armchair, and asks how dare he take the distinguished seat after insulting "our country", embarrassing "our Queen", humiliating "our PM".

He again postponed his visit in January this year after remarking that the relocation of the USA embassy in London was a "bad deal" made by President Obama, and that he was not interested in cutting the ribbon at the opening.

'It's something that should be celebrated and not criticised. "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism".

'They will come and go and we won't and we will still be here investing in these properties for generations to come'.

Sadiq Khan really gets under Trump's skin. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me ..."

'I think it was a foolish location, but at the end of the day I think it is irrelevant and it doesn't make any difference to this course.

'We will see how long they last'.

Anthony Gardner, who was ambassador to the European Union to former president Barack Obama, said Trump's attack was "totally unacceptable" and "unprecedented" in the middle of a high-profile visit. "She said: "Don't worry, it's only the press".

The protests came during Trump's four-day visit to the United Kingdom - his first as president and one that is expected to be met with more than 60 scheduled protests.

It is widely believed that that the president will visit his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire to relax, and likely play golf, on Saturday.

"I partially won an election because of immigration", he said, also pointing to Italy's recent vote, in which Giuseppe Conte took government after campaigning on a populist anti-immigration platform.

When asked if there would be more visits in the future he responded: 'There is no question about it'. It was during that trip to Washington that she invited him to the UK.

'We understand the President's time in Scotland is planned as a personal private visit between other engagements, with no official meetings.
