US President to meet Theresa May to discuss post-Brexit ties

Thousands of protestors are set to line the streets during Trump’s visit More

Dozens of protests have been organised across the country as organisers seek to mount a "carnival of resistance".

Demonstrators will assemble outside the BBC building in Portland Place at 2pm on Friday and march to Trafalgar Square for a rally.

Meanwhile, Theresa May's government is nervously anticipating disruption from the guest himself.

Speaking to journalists today after playing golf at the Trump International Golf Links in Balmedie, Mr Trump Jnr said the "foolish proposal was now irrelevant". Many will see his avoidance of London as proof he is trying to keep away from dissent, however, the U.S. ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, denied this.

"He's come out of the woodwork now and I've seen it the last few days; there's huge positivity for what we've done here".

Protesters have pledged to follow him wherever he goes in Britain and 10,000 police officers have been drafted in to protect him - the largest number deployed since the 2011 riots.

President Donald Trump arrived in London Thursday afternoon, where he will attend a state dinner and meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May - after making his mark on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium. From there his meetings with Mrs May will be at her country home, Chequers, which offers a "more informal setting", according to a Downing Street spokesman.

For Gorgeous, Trump has singled out marginalised groups in his presidency.

Trump has clashed in the past with May - even though she is a conservative who shares his view that defense spending should be raised - and with her predecessor, David Cameron, who challenged Trump's anti-Muslim campaign stance as "divisive, stupid and wrong".

He was met at Stansted Airport by dignitaries including International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and the USA ambassador Woody Johnson. "I just want the people to be happy".

The Trumps, joined by the Mays, ascended the red-carpeted steps of Blenheim Palace to two-folded fanfare - protests outside the palace and a military ceremony featuring a performance of the "Liberty Fanfare" by bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh guards. Around 50 percent think the visit should go ahead, compared with 37 percent who think the visit should be canceled.

Dozens of other, smaller protests against Trump's visit are set to take place around the United Kingdom throughout his stay. "And a failure to do so would leave a permanent stain on our democratic rights and freedom of speech".

The blimp's appearance in central London was approved by the Greater London Authority, and Mayor Sadiq Khan has defended the decision, saying it is not for him to be a censor or to decide what is in good or bad taste.

Asked about his father's visit and US-UK relations, he said: "He has worked here for so many years, he knows so many people".

Mr Trump will spend the weekend in Scotland where he has two golf courses and plans to play at least once. The issue is 'Do they have freedom to protest, freedom to assemble and should they be allowed to do so? Events will include "toss the welly at Trump" and a Trump coconut shy.
