Trump faces ‘carnival of protest’ on trip to Britain

The protest will will see Britons and minority ethnic groups uniting against what have been branded his

He will then go to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, the family home of British kings and queens for nearly 1,000 years.

Trump and the first lady will then travel to Windsor Castle to meet the queen, who has met every USA president since 1952 except Lyndon B. Johnson.

After spending the night at Winfield House in London, hosted by his ambassador Mr Johnson, the president will join the prime minister to watch a United Kingdom military exercise, before the pair travel to Chequers - the PM's country residence in Buckinghamshire - for bilateral talks.

The US ambassador in London told reporters Friday that Trump was "aware" of the planned protests but "is not avoiding anything".

Ambassador Woody Johnson said Mr Trump was simply trying to get as much impact as possible from his 24 hours in England on what he described as a "very important" visit which the president would use to strengthen the trans-Atlantic special relationship.

"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".

The US President will meet the Queen at Windsor and hold talks with PM Theresa May at Chequers during his two-day trip.

A giant inflatable figure depicting Trump as a baby will also join the protest on Friday after London Mayor Sadiq Khan granted campaigners the authorisation to fly it.

Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium that could turn contentious over the USA leader's insistence that allies pay more for their defence and amid trade disputes between Washington and Europe.

U.S. will 'absolutely' sanction European companies that do business with Iran
He said in the Fox interview that European companies would face sanctions if they traded with Iran now. It's awful what they do to us, he said.

The prime minister is not expected to travel to Scotland during Mr Trump's visit, which comes at a critical point for the government, with Brexit fast approaching and ambitions to strike a trade deal with the US.

"We are a free and open democracy, and we believe in the right to peaceful protest", May's spokeswoman added.

And while the president is conducting his meetings, the first lady, Melania, will have an agenda of her own, in the company of her opposite number, Philip.

"We want to portray to the American public, who voted for him and who made him president, that not everybody is against him in this country", he said.

"No, the president is not avoiding anything", he told a press briefing.

The American president will probably throw in a few quotes about the "special relationship" too, even as tens of thousands of protesters hit the streets of London to show Trump exactly how unpopular he is with the citizens of Washington's chief ally.

The powwow between the two leaders, whose countries are the closest of allies, will come three days before Mr. Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

Regarding the "Trump baby" balloon, the spokeswoman said it was up to the GLA to explain why they had approved it.
