Trump arrives in United Kingdom to pomp and protest

"I believe that the people in the UK, Scotland, Ireland, as you know I have property in Ireland, I have property all over, I think that those people they like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration", he said.

President Trump is said to have given a "positive" and "complimentary" speech about England as he addressed US Embassy workers within hours of his arrival in the UK.

United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May will not attend any demonstrations but she has been critical of her American counterpart.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has come under fire for his approval of a blimp featuring US President Donald Trump dressed as a baby.

Trump's trip coincides with a tumultuous week for May after two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves next March. "I think that's why they voted for Brexit".

The bulk of the activity will take place in London, where people plan to gather first in Regent's Park outside of the US ambassador's house on Thursday and again across central London for a series of protests throughout the day on Friday.

Widespread protests opposing President Trump's stay begin Thursday evening and continue through Friday night.

Asad Rehman, 51, one of the organizers of a massive protest planned for central London, said that among the motivations behind the protest was to show solidarity with Americans across the Atlantic who also oppose Trump.

After taking a firm stance both days of the conference, which included calling Germany a "captive" of Russian energy, Trump did say USA commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation remains strong and he thanked other members for "additional money they are putting up".

Mr Trump is on his first working visit to the country and will meet Prime Minister, Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II during his trip.

In a press conference this morning, Trump said he is "fine" with the mass protests planned in the country and that Britons like him "a lot".

"I think that's absolutely disgusting", Eugene Bibby, who runs a domestic appliance fix shop in Tommyfield Market in Oldham, told Fox News about the balloon.

But Donald Trump is not just any leader. "Obviously demonstrations are one of the most visible ones, but there's also the potential opportuning and exploitation of the visit by those with more nefarious intentions".

President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, are being greeted with pomp and circumstance, along with protesters, as he arrives at spectacular Blenheim Palace for a gala dinner.

On Friday, May and Trump will hold talks on Brexit, relations with Russian Federation, and trade ties at the prime minister's Chequers country residence, followed by a press conference.

On Saturday he will fly up to Scotland to play golf at one of his resorts and his son Eric landed in the family's "Trump Force One" private jet at Aberdeen, before flying to Helsinki to meet Vladimir Putin on Monday.

They will then meet the Queen for the first time, at Windsor Castle, before heading to Scotland where the United States president will spend the weekend at his Turnberry golf course in Ayrshire.
