  • Trump protests

Talks with Prime Minister Theresa May, a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II and a trip to Scotland all made Trump's schedule for his three-day United Kingdom visit beginning Friday.

More than 50,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

But as President Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday, he will find plenty of people who think it is more important to oppose him than it is to nurture U.S. -U.K. ties.

A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday, the venue for Trump's black-tie dinner with May on Thursday evening.

Trump will spend Thursday night in London at Winfield House, the official residence of U.S. Ambassador to Britain Robert "Woody" Johnson. Trump will get the red carpet treatment on his brief visit to England that begins Thursday: Military bands at a gala dinner, lunch with the prime minister at her country place, then tea with the queen at Windsor Castle before flying off to one of his golf clubs in Scotland.

While the many thousands are expected to line the streets and protest against Trump, politicians have become involved too.

According to The Guardian, in anticipation of the potentially violent turnout of protestors, the country will be deploying police at level not seen since its 2011 riots, when a man was shot and killed by police in London.

Basu said the two "must have got a high dose" and police were seeking a "container" they are believed to have handled. This has been identified as the same type of nerve agent that contaminated both Yulia and Sergei Skripal.

"It's typical, but honestly Donald Trump's legacy will outlive any big orange balloon and the matters that will be discussed at Chequers and now in Brussels are much more important and will have a much longer effect than any day rally", she said.

In a frank exchange with Piers Morgan on Good Morning Britain, Mr Khan said: "My views are irrelevant".

Mr Trump's schedule will largely keep him out of central London and it seems unlikely that the USA president will come close enough to Westminster to see the blimp.

"It's a disastrous and divisive time, and Trump is very much part of that", he said.

Mr Khan said he supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority, adding that it was not for him to be a "censor".

Mr Trump raised eyebrows when he went out of his way to praise Boris Johnson after he resigned as foreign secretary, while insisting it was up to the British people whether Mrs May remained in office or not.

Following his meeting in Brussels for the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit today, Mr Trump will fly into London tomorrow, Thursday, July 12.
