As He Lands In UK, Trump Says ''Fine'' With Protests

Donald and Melania Trump arrive in the UK

The US president arrived at London Stansted Airport shortly before 14:00 on Thursday, and is due to meet Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen over the next two days.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has come under fire for his approval of a blimp featuring US President Donald Trump dressed as a baby.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to protest against Trump's visit in central London on Friday, citing his alleged Islamophobia, controversial policies and "incendiary rhetoric" towards people with disabilities and the LGBTQ community.

Donald Trump's upcoming visit to Scotland is an opportunity for the country to "strengthen vital links" with one of its most important allies, the UK Government minister who will greet him has said.

On Friday, demonstrators are expected to gather near Chequers, the Prime Minister's country residence, where May and Trump will hold a working lunch.

Prime Minister May office said that she expected Donald Trump to discuss with President Putin issues like the Salisbury nerve agent attack on former spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia.

The US embassy's alert to American citizens was an unusual step, CNN reported.

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

Instead, only Mr Mundell will be on the tarmac to welcome the president and his wife, Melania, to Scotland before they are driven the 23 miles to his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire.

The antipathy between Mr. Trump and segments of the British public started during the 2016 presidential campaign, when Mr. Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. They like me a lot in the UK.

"I think it's amusing". "You see what " s going on throughout the world with immigration.

But the president will avoid London nearly entirely during his trip, which has been characterised as an attempt to avoid humiliation over the planned protests surrounding his visit.

The trip includes meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May, who has described the USA as Britain's strongest ally, and is determined to secure a trade deal after the country acts on Brexit and leaves the European Union in March 2019.

Mr Trump will meet the US Ambassador at Winfield House after arriving and then head to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

Similar protests are planned on Thursday evening outside the United States ambassador's home at Regent's Park and in Scotland when Mr Trump visits on Saturday.
