Historic photos show every time American presidents met British Kings and Queens

But Donald Trump is not just any leader.

Air Force One touched down at 1.50pm on a private airfield close to the airport where three MV-22 Osprey helicopters - used to transport his staff and security team - and two VH-60N White Hawks were waiting.

It explains that "numerous demonstrations" have been planned for President Trump's visit between July 12 and 14, with most of those in central London, and large crowds expected.

The President is expected to spend the weekend at his resort in Turnberry in Ayrshire after meeting the Queen and Theresa May beforehand.

A campaign is also underway to get "American Idiot", a 2004 song by the USA punk rock band Green Day, to the top of the UK Singles Chart.

"It's not me to say what the United Kingdom should be doing".

Many Britons are opposed to Trump's trip which is not the full state visit he was originally promised with the pomp and ceremony that entails. "People see him as a cheap huckster who happens to have an office we respect as president of the United States". He's not coming here for himself.

Organizers of anti-Trump rallies say they are not expecting any trouble at all - and that it would be very unlikely for any hostility to be directed at ordinary Americans.

The President commented on the escalating crisis Monday, saying it's "up to the people" to decide if May should remain as Prime Minister.


"You know I've been reading a lot on Brexit over the last couple of days and its seems to be turning a little bit differently where they're getting at least partially involved back with the European Union", he said. "I was happy when Obama did it".

"It's important for us to send a powerful signal to those who are resisting and campaigning in America that we are standing in solidarity with them", Rehman said.

In fact, just the opposite, they say.

Yet Trump's schedule will largely keep him out of central London. That prompted almost half a million people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from the UK.

The US Embassy in London has issued a warning to Americans in Britain to keep a "low profile" during Donald Trump's visit.

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

May will seek to put the tensions behind her when she hosts Trump later Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of World War II prime minister Winston Churchill.

The president and his wife Melania are due to arrive in Scotland on Friday evening after meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle.
