President Donald Trump to meet with Queen Elizabeth II but avoid protesters

President Donald Trump to meet with Queen Elizabeth II but avoid protesters

Mr Trump will then rejoin Melania, who is being hosted by Mrs May's husband Philip on a separate schedule that morning, for their visit to meet the Queen at Windsor.

London Mayor London Sadiq Khan has given the go-ahead for a giant "Trump Baby" balloon to be flown close to the UK Parliament during the President's visit.

Trump will arrive from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Thursday and will attend a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, a country house near Oxford where Britain's famous wartime leader was born in 1874.

"All the details are still TBC but once little Donald has been run out of Britain in July, we will start to put together an itinerary - so if your community is unlucky enough to be expecting a visit from the orange sex pest, please get in touch after the 14th".

After an overnight stay at the US ambassador's London residence, Mr Trump on Friday will join Mrs May at an undisclosed defence site to view the UK's "cutting edge military capabilities" and integrated UK-US military training, before they head to Chequers for talks.

Activists have promised to stage protests against Trump throughout his visit, with an event planned for London on Friday expected to be the biggest.

Despite a series of diplomatic spats with Washington since Trump s election, the British government is keen to strike a trade deal with the United States but the visit is likely to feature major protests against the U.S. leader.

"Mr Trump has said some unusual and irregular things, and some things I would certainly not agree with, but he has not, like many world leaders who Her Majesty and the government have met over the years, abused human rights".

Donald Trump will be kept out of the firing line of protesters during his highly-anticipated trip to the United Kingdom next week.

Londoners will get to see two versions of Donald Trump next week: the 45th president of the US and a 20-foot-high inflatable version that's orange and wearing a diaper.

"Trade will be on the agenda", May's spokeswoman told a briefing.

Robbins said it was also "really noticeable that he will barely spend any time in London" - perhaps to avoid the protests.

Ambassador Johnson said: "The president is not avoiding anything".

After he was invited previous year, more than 1.86 million people signed a petition saying Trump should not be given a state visit because it could embarrass the queen. Blenheim is the birthplace of Winston Churchill. He declined to confirm whether Mr Trump would play golf in Scotland - where he owns two courses - stressing that the weekend would be dominated by preparations for his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday.

The president is only expected to spend one evening in the capital city. In a crowdfunding request, they wrote that they want the balloon to shadow the president, "haunting the skies - and hopefully the dreams - of the stain on the office of President that is Donald Trump Senior".
