Donald Trump visit: What the United States president has said about the UK

Farage Blasts London Mayor for Allowing 'Baby Trump' Blimp: 'Sadiq Khan Is a Total Disgrace'

As President Trump is set to embark on a three-day visit to the United Kingdom on July 12, where he will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth, there are fears that demonstrations over his visit could turn violent. Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby.

But as President Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday, he will find plenty of people who think it is more important to oppose him than it is to nurture U.S. -U.K. ties.

He will spend just one night in the capital before going to Prime Minister Theresa May's country retreat Chequers in Buckinghamshire.

Top it off with the introduction of trade policies that have targeted some European industries - even though European nations are longtime friends accustomed to easy trade with the United States - and it is not surprising that Trump's itinerary will keep him out of central London on Friday, when large protests are planned.

Trump rails against Germany, demands allies double North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending
Arms crossed over his chest, Trump gestured at Stoltenberg and repeatedly interrupted the secretary-general as he argued his case. Must pay 2 per cent of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025. "Now we have to rebuild that democracy and strengthen it.


The reason President Trump gave for cancelling his visit was his dislike of the relocation of the US Embassy from Mayfair to south London. That led roughly half a million people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from entering the UK.

Ms Elliott, who is originally from Virginia, said she is hopeful there could be a state visit by Mr Trump next year.

Mrs May will be seeking to improve her often publicly strained relationship with the U.S. president as she pushes for a post-Brexit trade deal with the US.

The U.S. president is also due to travel to Scotland where he owns two golf courses and Scotland's interim police chief has said more than 5,000 officers would be needed for to cover the trip, including specialist riot and armed officers.

Liverpool open talks with Stoke City over Xherdan Shaqiri transfer
Liverpool are confident that they will sign Swiss worldwide Xherdan Shaqiri this summer, according to a report in The Guardian. Shaqiri's involvement at the World Cup ended last week when Switzerland were knocked out of the tournament by Sweden.


U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson said Wednesday citizens are often advised to avoid public demonstrations and that he is not upset by the decision to allow the "Trump baby" balloon to be displayed near Parliament.

Organizers of anti-Trump rallies say they are not expecting any trouble at all - and that it would be very unlikely for any hostility to be directed at ordinary Americans.

On Sunday he moves on to Helsinki to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin for long-awaited talks on neutral territory.

He also said he might speak to Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over May's plans for a business-friendly Brexit which was only agreed by her cabinet last Friday after two years of wrangling.
