Trump stokes Britain's Brexit turmoil at start of visit

The fence cuts through Regent’s Park

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.

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

Police Scotland Assistant Chief Constable Mark Williams, said: "Clearly there is a significant protection operation in place for the President and this includes restrictions to the airspace in the Turnberry area". Still, lawmakers have had no qualms about publicly calling Mr. Trump a demagogue and a fool.

He believes Mr Trump's visit shows his respect for the United Kingdom, as his political career would get more of a boost from staying at home and campaigning in America.

"Give us your tired and your oppressed and we'll divide you from your children", he said of Trump's policies.

The largest demonstration is expected in central London on Friday where a giant "Trump baby" balloon will fly close to Parliament after being given the go-ahead by London mayor Sadiq Khan.

Gardner, who works with refugees as part of her doctoral research at the London School of Economics, said Trump's speeches about refugees and immigrants are "a very risky line of rhetoric to be normalized".

Hundreds of officers were to stay in cramped lines of camp beds filling a vast gymnasium and sleeping mats on the floor of squash courts between long shifts policing the USA president's trip.

Protests, pro-rallies planned across United Kingdom ahead of Trump's visit
Despite the welcome from May, many Britons remain deeply opposed to Trump's visit. The two leaders are also expected to discuss Russia, Brexit and Middle East.

But Donald Trump is not just any leader.

"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.

They were met by International Trade Secretary Liam Fox, the Lord-Lieutenant of Essex Jennifer Tolhurst, chief operating officer of Stansted Airport Brad Miller as well as a regiment of RAF airmen.

Trump was making his first trip to Great Britain as president after a tense summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels that began Wednesday and on the heels of ruptures in May's government because of the crisis over Britain's exit from the European Union.

Ignoring all diplomatic niceties, the convention-shredding USA president set up the four-day visit with a rebuke of his beleaguered host as she battles to stop her government falling apart over Brexit.

He said Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations".

"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".
