Donald Trump arrives in London on his maiden visit to UK

Speaking about the protests - that includes a giant balloon baby flown over Parliament - Trump told reporters in Brussels that he was well-regarded by Brits.

Trump will spend four days in the United Kingdom from Thursday, where he will meet with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister Theresa May.

It comes in a week in which British Prime Minister Theresa May was confronted with the unprecedented resignations of key Cabinet ministers, and on the very day when her government is publishing a controversial new policy paper outlining its strategy of leaving the European Union.

Trump will spend Thursday night in London at Winfield House, the official residence of U.S. Ambassador to Britain Robert "Woody" Johnson. "Britain is going to have to look right around the world for allies with which to do trade deals".

Mr Corbyn said that the U.S. president's policies were putting the lives of millions of people at risk. "It seems so un-American".

"It's the office of the President that's coming to the UK".

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan challenged Mr Khan over the decision, suggesting the mayor had approved of the blimp due to personal animosity towards the US President, the Daily Mail reports. Both of those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders - and Trump unilaterally trashed them.


In a list of "actions to take", the warning recommended that Americans, "Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent", "keep a low profile" and "be aware of your surroundings".

Mr. Trump has been quick to criticize British society, telling an NRA convention in May that the British didn't have guns but had so much knife crime that one hospital was like a military war zone with its floors awash with blood - a statement quickly rebutted by British physicians and politicians. Still, lawmakers had no qualms about publicly calling Trump a demagogue and a fool. It was an extraordinary rebuke from a close ally.

Queen Elizabeth II has outlasted 13 U.S. presidents during her reign.

In the weeks before the American president's inauguration, May sent Trump a copy of the text of Churchill's 1941 Christmas Eve radio address to Americans, delivered while the prime minister was staying with U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt after the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Trump has always been a Brexit supporter and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after Brexit, something heralded by eurosceptics as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

On Friday, May and Trump will hold talks on Brexit, relations with Russian Federation and trade ties at the prime minister's Chequers country residence followed by a press conference. She will then head to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth II in the afternoon.
