Donald Trump set for controversial United Kingdom visit

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

US President Donald Trump has shrugged off protests planned across the United Kingdom ahead of his arrival there Thursday, claiming he is very popular in Britain because of his hardline stance on immigration.

A giant inflatable "Trump baby" will be taken to Scotland to coincide with the U.S. president's visit over the weekend.

Activists inflate a giant balloon depicting US President Donald Trump as an orange baby in north London on July 10, 2018 ahead of a demonstration in London to coincide with the visit of the US president.

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

"It's typical, but honestly Donald Trump's legacy will outlive any big orange balloon and the matters that will be discussed at Chequers and now in Brussels are much more important and will have a much longer effect than any day rally", she said.

The US president will touch down at Stansted Airport on Thursday evening.

Trump watchers have kept a close eye on the first couple's public displays of affection, especially after the first lady was caught on camera clearly swatting away her husband's hand during a trip to Tel Aviv, Israel in May of a year ago.

Trump has clashed in the past with May - even though she is a conservative who shares his view that defense spending should be raised - and with her predecessor, David Cameron, who challenged Trump's anti-Muslim campaign stance as "divisive, stupid and wrong".

This week's stop will be categorized as a "working visit" - without the elaborate trappings such as a horse parade or a state dinner at Buckingham Palace.

A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday, the venue for Trump's black-tie dinner with Prime Minister Theresa May. They will be doing that in concert with the Civil Aviation Authority, the US Air Force and the RAF.

"I would be happy to see Hillary Clinton if she was president visit the UK. It's not for me to decide what's in good taste or bad taste".

"It's quite nefarious, the groups backing these protests and paying for the signs, large Labour groups", he said.

On Friday (Jul 13), he will join Prime Minister Theresa May at Chequers before meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle, however, his arrival has not been welcomed by all.

While the many thousands are expected to line the streets and protest against Trump, politicians have become involved too.

Organizers now say they hope to take the blimp on a "world tour", following Trump on his worldwide diplomatic engagements.

He also said he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary on Monday, while he joked that his meeting with Russian leader Mr Putin in Helsinki next week "may be the easiest" part of his European trip.

"We need to show the world what millions of people in this country think of the bigotry and the hatred that he represents", Owen Jones, a Guardian columnist who helped organize the anti-Trump demonstrations, told TIME on Monday.
