Trade and tea with queen for Trump in a Britain in 'turmoil'

US embassy in London warns Americans in UK to ‘keep low profile’ during Trump visit

Security is still a cornerstone of the relationship, as are trade and less tangible things like shared language and the fact that many Americans are proud of their British roots.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom on Wednesday downplayed the hype over a giant balloon depicting a baby President Trump due to float down the streets of London in protest of his visit this week - saying it doesn't reflect the views of the majority of British people.

"Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future".

Unlike visits from previous presidents, he won't be spending much time in London after his arrival.

It noted that numerous demonstrations are being planned for July 12 to 14, surrounding the visit of the President.

The 6m high balloon shows Mr Trump as a giant baby in a nappy with his trademark blonde hair.

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.

A 20-foot-tall blimp depicting President Trump as a cartoon baby stands inflated in London's Bingfield Park.

The drag artists will meet in Soho, before protesting down Shaftesbury Avenue and joining the Women's March London "Bring The Noise" parade through to Parliament Square.

‘Stable genius’ Trump touches down in UK
Hoodoo Zephyr penned lyrics to the Scottish tune mocking Donald Trump 's personal life and politics. A coalition known as Together Against Trump has been the chief organizer of the opposition effort.

Trump was flying over after a fraught North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels where he piled pressure on allies to double their defence spending.

Mr Trump with meet with UK Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen. On Thursday, Mr. Trump shrugged off the planned protests, telling reporters "they like me a lot in the U.K".

May hopes Trump, who landed at Stansted airport before flying by helicopter to the U.S. ambassador's London residence, will help to accelerate a future free trade deal, though his public comments on Brexit cast a shadow over the visit. We greatly respect America as a generous place built up by immigrants over the years. "We seem to be going into a cycle of rather regressive thinking".

Protests coinciding with Mr Trump's visit are set to take place in Glasgow this evening and in Edinburgh on Saturday. She pointed out there are many issues that legislators have urged her to raise with her American counterpart.

The US president gave a brief wave to the crowd before descending the steps holding the hand of the First Lady, who wore a fitted beige dress and red belt.

Trump hopes to build on that momentum when he sits down with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II.

"It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do and I don't think certainly it doesn't express the opinion of the British people I met", he said.

It would be a blow for Britain to lose that special status, said Shashank Joshi, a British security analyst. "We have come to an agreement which absolutely delivers what people voted for", she said in a statement.

Just hours before arriving in London, the United States president questioned progress in Brexit talks and Britain's new plan to remain close to the European Union on regulatory standards for goods.
