But as President Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday, he will find plenty of people who think it is more important to oppose him than it is to nurture U.S. -U.K. ties.

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.

A 20ft blimp featuring the image of Donald Trump as a crying baby will be flown over London to mark the President's visit, and now organisers want to bring their inflatable protest to Scotland.

Donald Trump's upcoming visit to Scotland is an opportunity for the country to "strengthen vital links" with one of its most important allies, the UK Government minister who will greet him has said.

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.

In an alert on Tuesday, the U.S. Embassy in London warned citizens about "numerous demonstrations" planned between Thursday and Sunday that could "attract large crowds" less than friendly to U.S. citizens.

Police said the blimp would not be allowed at the course as an air exclusion zone was in place during the president's visit.

The US Embassy warned American citizens in the United Kingdom to "keep a low profile".

Speaking ahead of his trip, the president described Turnberry as "magical" and "one of my favourite places", adding: "My mother was born in Scotland and I have great friendships over there".

Widespread protests opposing President Trump's stay begin Thursday evening and continue through Friday night. "I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly, whatever they work out". "I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him", said Mr Trump.

But the president will avoid London nearly entirely during his trip, which has been characterised as an attempt to avoid humiliation over the planned protests surrounding his visit.

They will then go to Blenheim Palace for dinner with Theresa May and a group of top business leaders.

"You see, what's going on throughout the world with immigration..."

President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May, seen during a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Wednesday, will reconvene this week in the United Kingdom.

Protesters are set to descend on the Regent's Park residence, with plans to blare out recordings of children crying for their parents at United States detention centres.
