Donald Trump visit to United Kingdom 'in turmoil' inspires baby blimp protest

Tall metal mesh barricades and concrete blocks have been erected around the perimeter of the US Ambassador's swanky central London residence, Winfield House, where Trump will spend Thursday night.

Downing Street has said that the dinner, at the birthplace and ancestral home of Britain's war-time prime minister Winston Churchill, is meant to "celebrate the strong business links between our two countries" at a time when the United Kingdom is hoping to strike a free trade deal with the USA following Brexit.

Trump's wife is also concerned about how the British people will be viewing her and her husband during the trip.

That business-friendly Brexit proposal was agreed by her cabinet only last Friday after two years of wrangling since Britons voted to leave the bloc in a 2016 referendum.

"I'm going to a pretty hot spot right now, right?"

"Ironically, it's also standing in solidarity with those people who voted for Trump, who ultimately their lives will be affected negatively by this...because they've been lied to, they've been manipulated".

Hours before his arrival here, Trump said he is "fine" about any protests during his visit to the UK.

Campaigner Matthew Butcher, who described himself as one the "Trump babysitters", said the caricature acts as a "mirror" to the president, highlighting his "infantile" approach to politics.

It is not simply the protesters, who are expected to dog Trump throughout his visit, including his weekend in Scotland, but his fraught relationship with political leaders accustomed to harmonious exchanges with US leaders, a tradition of unity that goes back at least to the vital World War II partnership of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.

Asked about the President's view on US-UK relations, he said: "He has worked here for so many years, he knows so many people".

Meanwhile some Democrats say they will try to block Kavanaugh's confirmation, and his vetting process has just begun. The GOP controls 51 of the Senate's 100 seats, though the votes of two pro-choice Republicans - Sen.


"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".

Some British citizens are even more distressed about Trump than they are about the U.K.'s own feverish political turmoil. A YouGov poll on Wednesday showed 77 percent of Britons had an unfavourable opinion of the president and just 50 percent thought his visit should go ahead.

"I think it's amusing".

"Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there".

It is widely believed that such a schedule has been designed for Donald Trump because of the overwhelming protests that are expected to descend on London during his visit.

Ahead of Trump's arrival, the U.S. embassy advised United States citizens in London to "keep a low profile" during Trump's visit.

The demonstrators plan to loft a large blimp-like balloon over the skies beside Westminster Palace, depicting a bronzed "Trump Baby" in diapers, clutching a mobile phone.

Donald Trump is due to arrive in London on Thursday and will meet the Prime Minister and 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. She will then head to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth II in the afternoon.

Trump was making his first trip to Great Britain as president after a tense summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels that began Wednesday and on the heels of ruptures in May's government because of the crisis over Britain's exit from the European Union.
