May hopes Trump visit will boost US-UK links

UK Government preparing for Anti-Trump protests as “if London was burning down

Americans In London Urged To 'Keep A Low Profile' During Trump Visit

LONDONPresident Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump touch down in London on Thursday for a working visit, and while his meeting schedule will keep him nearly exclusively outside of the capital, she will be spending some time in town.

It is understood that, despite speculation, the Duke of York is not expected to play golf with Trump during his visit.

"I think they like me in the UK".

On Friday evening, Trump and the First Lady whisk up to Scotland for a weekend of golf and relaxation - and more protests outside his resort.

Around 50,000 people are expected to march in central London on Friday with demonstrators making their way through the city before a large rally takes place in Trafalgar Square.

Trump's itinerary will keep him out of central London on Friday, when large protests are planned.

Trump added that the U.K.is a "pretty hot spot", given the recent upheaval in the government there.

One of Trump's greatest obsessions was dismantling ObamaCare, and the president tweeted about the UK's NHS service as proof of that a universal healthcare system is unworkable.

But his agenda reveals that he will largely avoid London - where tens of thousands plan to protest against him and a 20-foot balloon that depicts him as an angry orange baby will fly over the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.

US President Donald Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday for talks with the leader of the United States' closest ally in Europe.

The Jameson in Hammersmith has rebranded itself The Trump Arms for the US President's visit.

The Buccaneers, meanwhile, haven't picked in the Supplemental Draft since 1987, when they took Miami defensive tackle Dan Sileo. On Supplemental Draft Day, all 32 teams decide whether or not they will place blind bids on any of the prospects available.

After spending the night at the USA ambassador's official residence in Regent's Park, London, the United States president will join the Theresa May at a military base on Friday to view a joint counter-terrorism exercise involving UK and U.S. special forces.

He has also said he might speak to Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over May's plans.

When he arrives today, Trump will be taken to Blenheim Palace, the 300-year-old birthplace of Churchill.

"It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do and I don't think certainly it doesn't express the opinion of the British people I met", he said.

Trump's trip is part of a working visit and not a state visit, an invitation to which was extended to him personally by May just days after his inauguration.

The President is arriving from Belgium's capital after attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels after he sat down with leaders of the military alliance to discuss its spending on defence.

On Friday, Trump will join May at a United Kingdom military demonstration at a defense site, after which they will go to May's country home Chequers for bilateral talks, according to the Evening Standard.

Later in the day, the President will head to Windsor Castle, where he will have a tea with the Queen.

Over a lunch of Dover sole, lamb and lemon meringue pie, the leaders will discuss Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.

The first couple did hold hands during a Fourth of July picnic for military families at the White House last week, but even then, some Twitter observers believed it was just for show.
