London protests against Donald Trump kick off with 'Trump baby' blimp

U.S. President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K.is off to a contentious start with the President challenging Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy and highlighting her political troubles.

He is taking helicopters to his various destinations.

There are street protests of Trump's first visit to Britain since taking office almost 18 months ago. "Trump Baby will fly!"

May and Trump are due to hold talks on Friday.

Trump went on: "You have a mayor who has done a bad job in London".

Later, Trump and his wife, Melania, will spend some of her time on separate engagements with May's husband, Philip, will have tea with the Queen at Windsor Castle, the Guardian reported.

The Queen will meet Mr Trump and first lady Melania Trump at the dais in the quadrangle of the historic royal residence on Friday.

Trump, however, is the most unconventional of modern US presidents and there is some anxiety in Britain about whether he will adhere to protocol.

President Trump's comments to British newspaper The Sun are being described in the USA as a "Brexit bomb" - but some White House correspondents are querying whether he really meant to rule out a trade deal with the UK.

Amid reports that he had threatened to pull out of the alliance due to the dispute, Mr Trump said the USA had a strong commitment. The new communique says 24 allies will meet the 20% guideline by 2024. "So he knows what he's signed up to", Macron said.

Deadly bacteria fears: Supermarkets recall frozen vegetables
He said cooking the vegetables should kill the bacteria, but warned against eating undefrosted or undercooked frozen vegetables. Listeria may cause illness in pregnant women and their unborn babies, the elderly and people with low immune systems.

Though White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was quick to issue a statement saying Trump "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much, the prime minister, already on a back foot, will have needed his intervention as much as losing a vote of confidence in parliament".

The interview appeared in The Sun, Britain's biggest-selling newspaper, and was published shortly after May delivered a speech to welcome the USA president to Britain.

Prime Minister Theresa May said her plan to keep close economic ties with the European Union once Britain leaves the bloc next March was "principled and pragmatic".

Donald Trump has warned Theresa May's Brexit plan will "kill" any future US trade deal in bombshell comments as the President met the British prime minister in the United Kingdom.

In a series of extraordinary broadsides, Trump told Friday's edition of The Sun that May's plan for post-Brexit ties with the European Union would "probably kill" the prospects for a trade deal with the US.

Britain's former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson arrives for a Cabinet meeting in London, May 1, 2018.

Trump also heaped praise on Johnson, May's nemesis who resigned over the "soft Brexit" blueprint on Monday, suggesting he would "make a great Prime Minister". It is not considered appropriate to call the Queen by her first name - a gaffe that Nelson Mandela made in 2014 - and it is never okay for people to use her nickname Lilibet, which is reserved exclusively for very close family members.

The balloon was authorised by Khan, who has crossed swords with Trump several times after the president posted factually incorrect messages over a series of terror attacks in Britain in 2017.

"But the other people who will be saying this is really good news for us are the "remainers" in the European Union, because when the United Kingdom delegation goes to Brussels next week to sell the idea that it's going to be really hard for the EU to resist the temptation to say to them 'look, you think dealing with us is hard, how do you feel about dealing with him?'"
