Trade and tea with queen for Trump in a Britain in 'turmoil'

It has vowed to gather near the USA ambassador's residence in London, where Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will stay Thursday night, and outside Blenheim Palace, wartime leader Winston Churchill's birthplace, which hosts the pair for dinner prior.

"I don't get to see him almost as much as I used to get to see him and I'm excited to spend a couple of days with him - we're going to have a great time".

"And I've spent the last eight months going all around the country, meeting people and getting their point of view of all kinds of people whether it's politicians or people working in factories.I don't feel that at all".

The prime minister will then accompany Trump to a military exercise (they'll watch, not join in), before they sit and have a proper talk about the relationship between the United States and the UK.

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 Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

Trump added that the U.K.is a "pretty hot spot", given the recent upheaval in the government there.

"I know he loves the east coast, he loves this property more than maybe anywhere else in the world, so I certainly hope he can get out here".

Mr Trump is due to land this afternoon before attending a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace in his honour, where protesters will gather at the gates.

Due to the thousands of people due to protest against him in London, Trump is largely avoiding the capital other than a quick stop at the USA embassy.

Johnson added that the President "appreciates free speech" and that he was "very focused on the special relationship" between the U.S. and the UK.

A spokesperson for Prime Minister Theresa May said Trump was "wrong" to share the videos.

One of Trump's greatest obsessions was dismantling ObamaCare, and the president tweeted about the UK's NHS service as proof of that a universal healthcare system is unworkable.

Ahead of his visit, Trump said Britain was "in somewhat turmoil" as the PM grappled with a political crisis.

The demonstration is organised by 'Scotland United Against Trump.' It is to be noted that the US President is also expected to visit Scotland, where he owns a number of golf resorts, the day after his visit to London, read a statement by the Foreign Press Association.

The pair will discuss relations with Russia, Brexit and trade ties, Downing Street officials said, after Trump recently slapped tariffs on European Union steel and aluminum imports.

The US President also won't be meeting The Queen at Buckingham Palace - instead meeting her at Windsor Castle.

"It's typical, but honestly Donald Trump's legacy will outlive any big orange balloon and the matters that will be discussed at Chequers and now in Brussels are much more important and will have a much longer effect than any day rally", she said.
