Donald Trump visit: How Americans living in the United Kingdom feel

Donald Trump visit: How Americans living in the United Kingdom feel

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the U.S. and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", May said ahead of the visit. More are planned for the second day of Mr Trump's visit.

The black-tie dinner was hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May, with other attendees including newly-appointed Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and his wife Lucia, and business leaders from firms including Blackstone, Blackrock, Diageo, Mclaren and Arup.

The Prime Minister then quickly let go of the US President's hand before guiding him towards where he should stand to listen to the Bandsmen of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards playing the Liberty Fanfare, Amazing Grace and the National Emblem.

Trump may not be able to ignore the presence of protesters entirely. But on Thursday they said they welcomed the plan and would study it closely. "Be aware of your surroundings (and) exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent", it added.

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.

Melania's day won't be spent entirely apart from her husband, as she and Donald are set to meet the queen at Windsor Castle, where they will take tea with the royal after watching a military parade.

The demonstrators plan to loft a large blimp-like balloon over the skies beside Westminster Palace, depicting a bronzed "Trump Baby" in diapers, clutching a mobile phone.

At the same time, Trump will be touring a defense site with May outside of London.

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

The 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 just want the people to be happy, they are great people".

Blimp organizer Leo Murray said it had been created to speak to Trump "in a language that he understands, which is personal insults".

"It's important for us to send a powerful signal to those who are resisting and campaigning in America that we are standing in solidarity with them", Rehman said. "I was happy when Obama did it". Thousands of protesters were expected to gather outside the luxurious residence later Thursday.

Leonard has previously suggested Nicola Sturgeon should "make clear she will not meet with Donald Trump".

The Trumps will have left town the night before for Scotland, where the President owns two golf properties, Trump Turnberry and Trump Aberdeen.

After the visit, Trump will decamp to Finland for a one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16.
