Trump arrives in United Kingdom to pomp and protest

Melania and Donald Trump disembark Air Force One at Stansted Airport, north of Londo.

Trump angered May and many Britons by tweeting inflammatory and unverified videos made by Britain First, an anti-Muslim group whose leaders have been convicted of hate crimes, and by characterizing parts of London and other cities as no-go areas because of a purported Muslim-related crime wave.

Protests are also planned in Scotland when he travels to play golf at his Trump Turnberry course.

A campaign is also underway to get "American Idiot", a 2004 song by the US punk rock band Green Day, to the top of the UK Singles Chart.

A YouGov poll this week found that the president's favourability rating in the United Kingdom is minus 60, significantly worse than both George W Bush and Barack Obama. He's not coming here for himself.

The middle son of the United States president is executive vice-president of the Trump Organisation and oversees the golf resorts.

President Trump is said to have given a "positive" and "complimentary" speech about England as he addressed US Embassy workers within hours of his arrival in the UK. "It's about lifting the spirits of the nation and it's already doing that, you know, it's just putting smiles on the faces of people who had started to despair about the state of politics".

Evie, who's 26, is also an American living in the UK.

While Jones and his companion refused medical treatment, Ragin was taken to the hospital to be treated for his injuries. The Bengals star calls out Ragin, who according to police, went after Jones and initiated the physical altercation.

"But from the public, the welcome will be far from warm", he added saying there would be protests across the country against Trump's "abysmal record on human rights, his repugnant attitude towards women and his disgusting treatment of minorities".

"There comes a time when citizens and governments around the world have to draw a line in the sand", she says. He is imprisoning children and tearing them away from their families. But on Thursday they said they welcomed the plan and would study it closely.

It has been dubbed Storm Trump and the country is braced for a USA presidential visit that has split opinion like never before. Vince Cable, the leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said, "Most of us don't think he is particularly good judge on Brexit or anything else".

However, the force said there were a number of "possible alternative" locations in Scotland where the blimp could be based, raising the prospect of it flying above one of several planned protests. In London, we speak with Sheila Menon, social justice activist and one of the organizers behind the Trump baby blimp.

Will Geddes, an global security specialist who has been involved in past state visit planning, estimates Mr Trump has brought around 150 secret service agents with him.

Later, Trump will take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, a home to the royals for 1,000 years, part of a tour created to keep him away from protesters.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II attend the formal opening of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in the ballroom at Buckingham Palace on April 19, 2018, in London.
