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

April FrancisJul 13, 2018

There are also plans for protestors to gather close to the U.S. ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, where Trump and his wife, Melania, will stay overnight on Thursday.

The president is then set to take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before heading to Scotland and the rolling green landscape of his golf course.

The President of the United States of America visits the UK this week, and if he was any other leader it would be a simple exercise in worldwide politics.

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.

"I think that's why Brexit happened", he said, noting that Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations".

He added: "I've been reading a lot about Brexit over the last couple of days, and it seems to be turning a little bit differently, where they're getting at least partially involved back with the European Union", Mr Trump said.

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. However, he is still being accorded the honor of a Thursday night dinner with May at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of celebrated United Kingdom wartime leader Winston Churchill. Tens of thousands have joined Facebook events and organised demonstrations around the country, some describing their anti-Trump movement as a "carnival of resistance".

Protests coinciding with Mr Trump's visit are set to take place in Glasgow this evening and in Edinburgh on Saturday.

The president is not now scheduled to visit Aberdeenshire, but Eric Trump hinted that a trip to Menie could still be added to his father's itinerary at the last minute.

The senator added that " President Trump could nominate George Washington and they would all be up in arms". Democrats will continue to argue that Kavanaugh's confirmation imperils Roe V Wade and reproductive rights.

Melania Trump has heard about the plans and isn't excited about her husband's presidency being see as a 'joke'.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump told a press conference.

Mrs May will be looking to improve her often publicly strained relationship with the USA president as she pushes for a post-Brexit trade deal with America.

A Downing Street spokesperson told HuffPost UK: "On Friday she is going to have a separate program in London, and because it's in London I'm not able to share the location but she plans to meet veterans and local schoolchildren".

In London, we speak with Sheila Menon, social justice activist and one of the organizers behind the Trump baby blimp.

Mr Trump will meet the US Ambassador at Winfield House after arriving and then head to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

It was during that trip to Washington that she invited him to the UK.

Trade and security links, Brexit and the Middle East are among the issues to be discussed by Trump and May.
