Trump greeted with protests during first United Kingdom visit

Trump balloon appears before UK visit; embassy warns Americans to keep heads down

"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.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to march through London in protest against Mr Trump's visit and some of his actions during his first 18 months in power.

U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson said Wednesday that citizens are often advised to avoid public demonstrations and that he is not upset by the decision to allow the "Trump baby" balloon to be displayed near Parliament.

Some cited "job restrictions" while another said he was wary of the press. "I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him", said Mr Trump.

Mr Trump and his wife Melania landed at Stansted on Air Force One at 1.50pm local time before a helicopter took them to the USA ambassador's residence in London.

After arriving in Great Britain Thursday evening, Trump and the first lady will dine with May and her husband at Blenheim Palace. "I just want the people to be happy".

"I've been reading a lot about Brexit over the last couple of days. But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for".

Trump is on a "working visit" rather than a full state occasion.

On Friday, Trump will meet with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II and then spend the weekend at one of his private golf courses in Scotland.

The president described Britain as a "hot spot" with "a lot of resignations", and added that his trip next week to Helsinki to meet President Putin may be comparatively easier.

Starbucks announced plans to eliminate more than 1 billion plastic straws per year from its stores worldwide by 2020. On July 1, Seattle became the first USA city to ban plastic straws, spoons, forks and knives.

On Saturday, Trump supporters will rally near the United States embassy in Nine Elms, south London, for an event titled "Welcoming Trump to Britain Rally - Make Britain Great Again", at which a number of right-wing figures are scheduled to speak.

"I think they like me in the UK". The EU better be careful. "I'm very strong on immigration".

But Police Scotland said it could not grant permission for the balloon due to the tight security surrounding the President's visit, which includes air space restrictions around Turnberry.

Today Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick declared: "We will keep him safe".

"Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future". "It is important we send a message", she said.

The protesters' photocall promised to be the overture for more serious drama.

Most of the protests will take place that day in central London, the US officials said, with some occurring the days before and after.

"Tonight there will be protests, tomorrow there will be protests".

They said that the performers will also be marching with a fetish group, as Fetish Week London is running from July 8 to 15.

"Give us your tired and your oppressed and we'll divide you from your children", he said of Trump's policies.

"We just love this country".

Dick also said the workforce which is having to "flex, surge and to respond" to events is made up of "fantastic people with a clear sense of mission, high skills and incredible ethics".

The 6m high balloon shows Mr Trump as a giant baby in a nappy with his trademark blonde hair.

Almost every force in England and Wales has contributed officers to help with the massive mobilisation, the biggest since the 2011 riots.

The comments come ahead of his controversial four-day visit to Britain.

President Trump arrived at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is in Oxfordshire, in his helicopter at about 7.50pm before being greeted by Theresa May.

Supporters of Donald Trump say a protest baby blimp set to fly over London is disrespectful to the President - but one thinks he will actually find it "funny".

Mrs May said the United Kingdom visit would be an opportunity to boost trade links and strengthen co-operation on security.

"The spirit of friendship and co-operation between our countries, our leaders and our people, that most special of relationships, has a long and proud history".
