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

A sign attached to the fence reads: "No access - do not enter". A police security operation is taking place. Any contravention, it warns, "could result in force being used against you, your arrest and/or prosecution".

Large anti-Trump protests are expected to follow Trump throughout the day.

- Mr Trump will arrive into Stansted airport on Thursday at around lunchtime, fresh from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

"Yes, there might be protests", he said. "It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do, and doesn't express the opinion of the British people that I've met", he told the BBC's Today programme.

The Trumps trip to the United Kingdom is not an official state visit, however, tomorrow the couple will visit the Sandhurst military academy and hold talks at May's country house, Chequers.

Liberal Democrat leader Sir Vince Cable said the USA president "now chooses our leaders". "The President is merely trying to get as impactful a trip as he can get in a 24-hour period".

The poll is "noticeably higher than in previous YouGov polls that asked about a state rather than a working visit", YouGov wrote in an analysis.

In a near replay of their famous hand-holding at the White House, the president briefly took Mrs May's hand after arriving as they went up the stairs into the palace following a performance from a military band.

Trump may not be able to ignore the presence of protesters entirely.

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.

Anger over Trump's visit has already had consequences.

From there, using a helicopter to remain above the protests while largely avoiding central London, Trump will meet with May and hold a press conference with the prime minister sure to be dominated by the fallout from the interview before he visits Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle. Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby.

Mr Khan has responded by supporting Londoners' "right to protest" the visit, and City Hall approved a blimp shaped like the president as a baby, which will fly over parliament this weekend. As of Thursday morning, more than 1,900 people had contributed to a crowdfunding campaign for the balloon, raising more than £30,000 (nearly $40,000).

"Clearly, the really hard Brexiters, the people who regard Theresa May as being a traitor, for keeping any sort of deal going with the European Union, they're going to love this", Lee said.

Mr. Trump declared on Thursday in Brussels that, "I think they like me a lot in the U.K".

"Mr President, Sir Winston Churchill once said that "to have the United States at our side was, to me, the greatest joy", May told Trump, according to a text of her speech provided by her office. Separately, his wife, Melania, will visit war veterans and schoolchildren in a London visit accompanied by Philip May, the prime minister's husband. Trump said that would happen over "a fairly short period of time".

Mr Morgan, the forthright journalist and broadcaster, hit back and questioned why the London mayor had not been so vocal over the visit of controversial Turkish President Recep Erdogan.
