Donald Trump, 72, is about to visit the United Kingdom for the first time since being elected president in November 2016, and the British people aren't prepared to give him a warm welcome.

Anti-Trump protesters with critical signs were lining the roadway leading to the palace near Oxford. We greatly respect America as a generous place built up by immigrants over the years.

A giant inflatable "Trump baby" will not be allowed to fly over the United States president's Turnberry golf course when he visits over the weekend, Police Scotland have said. However, he is still being accorded the honor of a Thursday night dinner with May at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of celebrated United Kingdom wartime leader Winston Churchill.

Mr Trump's intervention comes at the end of a tumultuous few days for Ms May.

"The United States commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is very strong", he said. "I am very strong on immigration". Organizers now say they hope to take the blimp on a "world tour", following Trump on his worldwide diplomatic engagements.

A day before the United States president was due to have bilateral talks with Theresa May, Trump used an interview with the Rupert Murdoch-owned Sun to endorse her principal Tory rival just days after he resigned from the cabinet in protest at her Brexit policy.

US President to meet Theresa May to discuss post-Brexit ties
Only one person, the digital entrepreneur and philanthropist Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, has publicly refused the invitation. Donald Trump has been under fire for his own immigration policy, which resulted in the separation of immigrant families.

As Trump is expected to discuss a possible post-Brexit trade deal and other global issues with May, organizers of Friday's demonstrations say there is no shortage of issues that will inspire mass numbers of people to attend.

"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".

On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the USA ambassador's residence where Trump was staying on the outskirts of London, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected on Friday.

Trump had earlier shrugged off the organised demonstrations, which on Friday will include a giant baby-shaped balloon bearing Trump's features and have required police to be mobilised from across the country.

In walks President Trump, to call out one of the claims that Number 10 has been making of late - in essence, smashing the vase to bits.

Some remains have been returned to the US over the years, but very few since recovery efforts were mostly halted in 2005 as U.S. Now, however, the mood in Pyongyang appears to be more conciliatory, with Kim keen for another meeting with Trump .

He said the stunt aims to "hold up a mirror" to Mr Trump's "toddler-like politics".

It has been dubbed Storm Trump and the country is braced for a USA presidential visit that has split opinion like never before.

Mr Trump will then travel to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen before heading to Scotland for the private part of his four-day visit.

Trump added that May's "soft" blueprint for the U.K.'s future dealings with the European Union would probably "kill" any future trade deals with the United States.

But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from London's Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to Trump's presence.
