President’s tour of historic UK… avoiding the protests in London

President’s tour of historic UK… avoiding the protests in London

The President and the First Lady will then travel to Windsor Castle to meet Queen Elizabeth.

He said Mr Trump and Mrs May have "a good relationship" and would discuss a wide range of topics at Chequers.

Melania Trump will accompany her husband for some events, for example at Blenheim Palace and to meet the Queen, but she will also have a separate itinerary, hosted by May's husband.

Trump's travel ban targeting several Muslim-majority countries and his re-tweeting of a message posted by the deputy leader of the far-right Britain First party, who has since been jailed for religiously aggravated harassment, both led to widespread condemnation in the country.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.K. Robert "Woody" Johnson said the president and the prime minister are "on the same page" when it comes to Russia's "malign activities".

Most recently, the separation of migrant children and parents at the US-Mexico border reignited calls for May to call off Trump's visit.

Donald Trump's planned four-day visit to the United Kingdom that begins next week will nearly entirely avoid London, according to an itinerary revealed today.

Mr Johnson denied that Mr Trump was avoiding London, where the biggest protests are expected to take place, pointing out that he was using the ambassador's residence in Regent's Park as his base for the visit, staying overnight there on Thursday, the day he arrives.

"He would love to do a bilateral trade deal and he is really ready to step up on that the minute we get the go ahead to do it".

"We need to see that the relationship isn't damaged after these protests", he said.

The Jameson in Hammersmith, west London will temporarily re-name their pub "The Trump Arms" to welcome President Trump to the UK.

The amount raised by the Trump Baby crowdfunder means that the balloon will be following the President around the globe, organisers have said.

Opposition lawmakers, backed by an online petition signed by almost 1.9 million people, called on May to cancel the state visit offered when she met Trump in Washington after his inauguration in January previous year.

Protestors will be on standby to race to one of Trump's two golf resorts in Scotland in case he visits.

On Friday morning, Trump and May will visit an as-yet unnamed defence site connected to joint UK-US military training.

He reported that he and his fellow organisers "didn't get off to the best start with the mayor's office over this, who originally told us that they didn't recognise Trump Baby as legitimate protest".

The president can feel Churchillian at Blenheim Palace, where Winston Churchill was born.

Mr Johnson said trade would be high on the agenda for bilateral talks between Mr Trump and Mrs May at Chequers next Friday.

On Sunday Mr Trump flies to Finland for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

Asked whether Mr. Trump would be playing golf in Scotland, Mr. Johnson said the president's schedule was still being planned.
