Trump set to touch down for controversial United Kingdom visit

Trump set to touch down for controversial United Kingdom visit”

Sadiq Khan supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority to allow the 20ft inflatable, dubbed "Trump Baby" to rise above Parliament Square Gardens for two hours on Friday morning while the USA president is in London.

Similar protests are planned on Thursday evening outside the USA ambassador's home at Regent's Park and in Scotland when Mr Trump visits on Saturday. We believe that this publicly-owned facility should not be used for Donald Trump's visit.

The president comes to the United Kingdom from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit where he again ruffled feathers, claiming Germany was "captive" to Russian Federation over its energy supply; and suggesting members should commit to spending 4% of their GDP on defence - double the current goal.

Another said it was just "another pathetic photo trying to show they care about one another".

A barrage of nationwide protests will greet US President Donald Trump's four-day trip to Britain from Thursday, with organisers hoping to stage one of the country's biggest demonstrations in decades following a series of diplomatic spats.

Mr Trump is expected to play golf at the course on Saturday.

The baby blimp of President Trump is due to be flown over London this week.

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead, from the National Police Coordination Centre, said: "Police forces are working together on a significant, multi-faceted security operation supporting the presidential visit to the UK".

Protests will also take place across the country, including in George Square, Glasgow and Albert Square, Manchester.

And if London's National Air Traffic Service and Metropolitan Police Service decide at the last minute that for safety reasons, the balloon can not fly, this baby will be grounded.

Mr Trump's planned visit has been met with plenty of anger, with 50,000 protesters expected to take to the streets of central London on Friday.

The six-metre-tall inflatable, which wears a diaper and carries a smartphone, is set to fly on Jul 13 between 9.30am and 11.30am above Parliament Square Garden, next to the Houses of Parliament.

Prime Minister May has abundant reasons to seek a close relationship with Trump - not least, the United States will be an even more vital trade partner once Britain leaves the European Union next year - but it is an uneasy embrace, given her opposition to many of his key policies.

It can be turned into a sealed panic room with oxygen tanks, night-vision camera and reinforced steel plating said to be able to resist bullets, chemical attacks and bombs.

Staff typically involved in an overseas trip include Secret Service post-standers, military communications specialists and White House aides.
