Pres. Trump Greeted With Ceremony In England

Susanna Reid Sadiq Khan

The state visit has never been scheduled - there is fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning, among other things, that Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the USA ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park rather than in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.

The Queen has met every United States president since Dwight Eisenhower with the exception of Lyndon Johnson, who never visited Britain while in office, according to AAP.

Mr Trump has confirmed at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation press conference earlier today that he will be spending the weekend playing golf at his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire, which he bought in 2014.

On Queen Elizabeth, he said: "She is a tremendous woman".

She had used the Blenheim black tie dinner with political and business leaders to press Mr Trump on the benefits of a free trade deal after Brexit. "We must show Trump and the Tories that we can and we will defeat the politics of division".

As well as in London, protests are expected to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff after Trump arrives here on Thursday.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said the U.S. president "now chooses our leaders". Organizers now say they hope to take the blimp on a "world tour", following Trump on his global diplomatic engagements.

Potentially tens of thousands are expected to march to a rally in Trafalgar Square on Friday afternoon, organized by the "Stop Trump Coalition".

"Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there".

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

A group of protesters has also gathered outside a fenced-off area in Regent's Park, close to the entrance of Winfield House, where Mr Trump is staying and is due to shortly leave for the dinner. That was just one of several helicopter rides on the agenda for Trump, whose staff opted to keep him largely out of central London and the swarms of demonstrators who are likely to provide some of the defining images of his first official trip to the UK.


He said London mayor Sadiq Khan, who has allowed protesters to raise a giant diaper-clad balloon mocking the U.S. president next to parliament on Friday, was doing "a awful job" on crime.

"We expect the highest standards of each other".

Trump's suggestion that her Brexit plan will kill any such deal has given her opponents ammunition against her, and could potentially spark a chain of events that leads to her downfall.

He is due to meet Theresa May, who is seeking a post-Brexit trade deal - days after he said the United Kingdom was in "turmoil".

"It's also an opportunity to tear down the bureaucratic barriers that frustrate business leaders on both sides of the Atlantic", she said. But on Thursday they said they welcomed the plan and would study it closely.

"The Americans can't believe, quite frankly, what a mess we're making of Brexit", he told the BBC.

The timing of the comments could not be worse for May, who is fighting a rebellion among her own MPs over Brexit which has seen Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson quit her government.

Mr Trump arrives Thursday afternoon following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and largely avoids the capital's centre and the protesters.

Russian Federation has strongly denied the charge.

Mr Trump will spend the weekend in Scotland where he has two golf courses and plans to play at least once.
