Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note

Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note”

Mr Trump arrived at London Stansted Airport at 2pm on Thursday for his four-day working visit.

The visit is seen as crucial at setting the course for a closer trading relationship between the two countries. Trump was largely steering clear of London, where protests are planned and where organizers had permission to fly a blimp over Parliament portraying the president as an orange crying baby.

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 unsafe line of rhetoric to be normalized".

A high metal fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent.

But Trump is unlikely to see many of those who have mobilized to protest against his visit.

May has had to defend Trump's visit in the face of fiery criticism from opposition lawmakers.

"I think they like me in the UK".

LONDON ― The U.S. Embassy in the United Kingdom.

"We need to ensure there is a balance between protection and public safety and the public's right to peacefully protest".

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

About 50,000 people are planning to demonstrate in London alone on Friday, the day when Trump has meetings planned with both Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II in the countryside.

A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday, the venue for Trump's black-tie dinner with May on Thursday evening.

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence which will focus on Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and Middle East.

Along with trade and security links, 10 Downing Street said the other key areas to be discussed between Prime Minister May and President Trump included Brexit and the Middle East.

On Friday, the President will meet Mrs May at Chequers before travelling to Windsor Castle for a meet and greet with the Queen.

Fielding questions following the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Mr Trump was asked his views on Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, suggesting it may deliver a softer Brexit that was not what the public wanted.
