Trade and tea with queen for Trump in a Britain in 'turmoil'

Mr Trump addresses reporters on the White Hosue lawn before he board Air Force One on July 9 in Washington

British Prime Minister Theresa May (R) with US President Donald Trump (C-R) and Philip May (L) with Melania Trump at Blenheim Palace.

"I'm going to a pretty hot spot right now, a lot of resignations".

In a break with tradition, American President Donald Trump will avoid as much of London as possible during his first official United Kingdom visit, but first lady Melania Trump will spend nearly all her time in the city, according to The Huffington Post.

Johnson added that the President "appreciates free speech" and that he was "very focused on the special relationship" between the USA and the UK.

"Brexit is Brexit, the people voted to break it up so I would imagine that is what they'll do, but they might take a different route, I'm not sure that's what people voted for", Trump said, adding: "They're great people - I just want them to be happy".

"U.K. and USA special forces will be involved in a demonstration which will involve a counter-terrorism scenario and an outdoor capabilities demonstration showing equipment that the [British] special forces use when they conduct joint operations with their US counterparts", the Downing Street spokeswoman added.

The controversial 45th President of the United States will visit the UK for the first time in his position on Thursday, July 12. "They all made commitments, and they will be up to 2 percent over a relatively short period".

Shrugging off the plans for mass protests, which will include a giant baby-shaped blimp bearing Trump's features, he said in Brussels: "They like me a lot in the UK".

"I'm excited to welcome the President of the United States", says Drew, who's 21.

Thousands of protesters are expected to join demonstrations during his visit, including plans to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an angry orange baby.

"We'll see where it leads", Trump said.

Ahead of his visit, Trump said Britain was "in somewhat turmoil" as the PM grappled with a political crisis.

Both those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders, and Trump unilaterally trashed them.

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

"There is definitely a sense that Britain needs America more because of Brexit", said Bronwen Maddox, head of the Institute for Government, a think tank.

May will seek to put the tensions behind her when she hosts Trump later Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of World War II prime minister Winston Churchill.

However, despite the welcome from May, many Britons remain deeply opposed to Trump's visit.

"We are committed to dialogue, including of course with those we strongly disagree with, and in government, we would find a way to work with his administration while also standing up for our values", he said, according to BBC News.

Mr Trump, who will also spend time with the Queen during his two-day working visit, added: "I think they agree with me on immigration".

Mr Trump had joked earlier this week that his meeting with Vladimir Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki on Monday "may be the easiest" part of his European trip.

On Friday night, the president will travel to Scotland, Turnberry, the South Ayrshire golf resort he bought in 2014.
