Did Donald Trump Just Walk In Front Of The Queen?

Did Donald Trump Just Walk In Front Of The Queen?

U.S. President Donald Trump and Britain's Queen Elizabeth inspect the Coldstream Guards during a visit to Windsor Castle in Windsor, Britain, July 13, 2018.

Trump had made it clear he was looking forward to his meet and greet with the monarch, who he described as a "tremendous woman" in an interview with The Sun.

After the London Bridge van and knife attack that killed eight past year, Mr Trump accused Mr Khan of making "pathetic excuses" and underplaying the threat. I haven't been there in a long time. Before the president even arrived, mass protests were organizing in London and other places around the U.K. The highlight of the festivities was a giant orange diaper-clad Trump baby balloon maneuvered around by protesters wearing "Trump Babysitter" shirts.

He wrote on Twitter that although Londoners admire the US, they "find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance".

Organiser Daniel Jones, a charity communications officer aged 26, said they were trying to make people laugh as well as making a serious point. An official visit by Trump was debated by British Parliament members in early 2017, and an online petition stating that it would be an "embarrassment" to the Queen received more than 1.6 million signatures at the time.

In a bombshell interview, which was published in The Sun tabloid newspaper on Friday, Trump said: "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism".

Organisers had planned to transport the blimp to Scotland overnight on the sleeper train and fly it at a protest near the Scottish Parliament on Saturday.

When asked about his comments on the PM, he outright denied criticizing her, dismissed the question as "fake news" and said the publication failed to include all the positive things he said about May.

US President Donald Trump says a free trade deal with Britain might be impossible if the country goes ahead with Prime Minister Theresa May's proposals for post-Brexit ties with the European Union, in a damaging intervention set to further criticism of her plans.

He said: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal". Trump and May showed no signs of strain in their relationship, however, before cameras during a joint press conference Friday.
