‘I think they like me a lot in the UK’

  • President Trump and first lady Melania Trump departed Tuesday for a weeklong trip to Europe on a four-nation tour with stops in Belgium England Scotland and Finland

One Facebook page advertising a London protest against Trump's first visit to Britain as president has around 60,000 people saying they will attend.

Opponents to the controversial United States leader have threatened mass protests but Mr Trump is expected to avoid areas such as central London where demonstrators are likely to gather.

Yet according to David Wemer of the Atlantic Council, a new U.S. -U.K. trade deal isn't a high priority for the Trump administration.

Earlier this week, Trump said it was "up to the people" whether the prime minister stayed on after two senior Cabinet ministers resigned within hours over her Brexit policy.

Aberdeenshire Council leader Jim Gifford said last November that he now felt Trump's golf course investment was not worth the environmental trade-off.

The US embassy has taken the unusual step of issuing a warning to American citizens in the United Kingdom to "keep a low profile" during the visit of President Donald Trump. Trump will travel by helicopter once there, making it unlikely he'll see protests firsthand.

She said they will discuss security and defense, an aspect of the relationship that is causing anxiety for some British politicians. Trump is technically on a lower-level working visit this week. The issue is 'Do they have freedom to protest, freedom to assemble and should they be allowed to do so?

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".

Later, Trump will go to Windsor Castle for tea with 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth.

The president was delayed for nearly an hour when the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels he had been attending overran because he demanded member states increase their contributions faster than originally planned.

May will seek to put the tensions behind her when she hosts Trump later Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of World War II prime minister Winston Churchill. May welcomed the summit and said it could help address "malign activity" by Russia which Britain blames for a nerve agent attack in March on a former Russian double agent and his daughter in southwest England in March.
