As He Lands In UK, Trump Says ''Fine'' With Protests

Trump baby

Britons, he said, "like me a lot", the BBC reported.

"I would have done it much differently", Trump said of May's Brexit plan. He also joked that Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations" and he has mused about meeting Mr. Johnson.

"The people voted to break it up [Britain's ties with the EU]", Trump said. "I don't know (if) that is what they voted for", he added.

The organisers behind the blimp however, said they were just "poking fun" and "hope Trump sees it".

When asked about the threat of mass demonstrations he said: "I think it's fine".

On Friday, Trump will meet with the prime minister and the Queen and then spend the weekend at one of his private golf courses in Scotland.

A YouGov poll released on Wednesday found that 77 percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of Trump and just 50 percent thought his visit should have gone ahead.

Lance Price, who served as former Prime Minister Tony Blair's media adviser, told the Independent that no matter what the American convoy contends, the fact that Donald Trump is avoiding London points to a moral victory for the protesters.

The poll conducted this week said 63% found Trump racist, and 74% said he was sexist.

As well as in London, protests are expected to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff after Trump arrives here on Thursday.

He's one of the most divisive presidents in United States history.

Rarely has a foreign leader been so mocked on an official visit - London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, a Muslim who has challenged Trump's worldview OK'd the balloon, which is an apt symbol of Trump's tempestuous relationship with Britain, traditionally the United States' closest ally.

Adding that it seemed as if the United Kingdom was "getting at least partially involved back with the European Union".

But Brexit champion Nigel Farage predicted there would be a "real clash" on Brexit.

The US President arrives after giving North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders a tongue-lashing in Brussels over defence spending and controversial comments about Britain being in "turmoil".

Then on Monday, he will be off to Helsinki to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

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.

Johnson and Trump are both critical of the UK PM's handling of Brexit, likening her plans as causing Britain to function like a "colony state" unable to make its own laws.

The comments come after May suffered a series of resignations from her Cabinet after she signalled that Britain was heading for a softer form of Brexit with closer ties to the European Union than previously expected.

Welcome to Blenheim Palace where President Trump will touch down for a black tie dinner hosted by Theresa May. "But the protest tomorrow in central London, where the Metropolitan Police have taken the decision not to allow a platform for speakers, that is an absolute disgrace, and the minister must intervene immediately to put this right".
