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

In this photo taken on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, a six-meter high cartoon baby blimp of U.S. President Donald Trump stands inflated during a practice session in Bingfield Park, north London.

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.

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.

Trump's itinerary will largely keep him out of central London, where significant protests are expected.

The Trumps are joining Prime Minister May and other British business leaders at the black-tie dinner at the palace to kick off their visit to Britain.

1 NEWS Europe Correspondent Joy Reid talked with some opposed to the US President's visit.

"I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad". French President Emmanuel Macron quickly disputed Trump's claim that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies had agreed to boost defense spending beyond their existing goal of 2 percent of gross domestic product by 2024.

But some 77 per cent of Britons have an unfavourable view of Trump, according to a poll by YouGov with 1,648 respondents. You have a mayor who has done a awful job in London.




Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, May is hoping for a quick trade deal with the U.S. after it leaves the EU. "Now he might not like the current President, but I represent the United States", Trump said. She also said that it's an opportunity to strengthen cooperation on security.

But Brexit champion Nigel Farage, a critic of May's Brexit plans - formally unveiled in a policy paper Thursday -predicted there would be "confrontation" on the visit.

During Mr Trump's trip he will meet the Queen and Prime Minister Theresa May as he visits locations including Blenheim Palace, Chequers, Windsor Castle, the USA ambassador's official residence in Regent's Park, London, and Scotland.

The Commander in Chief is due to travel north of the border on Friday to spend the weekend playing golf at his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire.

Russian Federation has strongly denied the charge.

Sheep grazing on the expansive lawns of the Duke of Marlborough's residence didn't seem bothered by Marine One as it emerged on the horizon, but dinner guests, in black tie suits and glittering gowns, stood at attention at the front of the palace waiting for the Trump's arrival. Tens of thousands, or more, are expected to participate.

The President and First Lady are also slated to meet the Queen on Friday in Windsor.
