The small gathering at a location to be confirmed in London - and at which Mr Trump is not expected to attend - is likely to be easily outnumbered by protesters involved in a series of demonstrations organised for the coming days, including the flying of a 20ft-high Trump inflatable near Parliament.

The city appears to not be the president's biggest fan - plans for a formal state visit were put on hold a year ago after hundreds of thousands of people threatened to protest.

As anti-Trump activists demonstrate during the United States president's visit, supporters will gather in the British capital to welcome him to Britain.

He will then travel to Helsinki for a summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin. "I think they agree with me on immigration", he said, also reminding reporters that his mother was from Scotland, which he plans to visit after his official meetings in England.

After a dinner for business leaders in Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, he will spent the night in the ambassador's residence in north London.

President Trump: "I think they like me a lot in the U.K".

The US embassy in London suggests he's not the only one who should do so: It told US citizens in Britain today (July 10) to "keep a low profile" for the duration of his trip-and to be aware of their surroundings.

At the time, Khan said he has more important things to do than respond to Trump's tweet, which he described as ill-informed and out-of-context.

The protest will continue on July 14 when a "carnival of resistance" is scheduled to take place in Edinburgh, coinciding with Donald Trump's visit to the UK.

But Drew, an American student who lives here in the United Kingdom, won't be among the demonstrators.

Amid reports that the government is working to bring a major police presence to the demonstrations, Amnesty International warned British authorities against attempting to stamp out freedom of expression in an effort to "appease their visitors".

Britain "is in somewhat turmoil", Trump said before departing Washington, remarking that dealing with Putin might surprisingly be the easiest part of the European trip.

President Donald Trump hasn't always had the best luck when it comes to making hand-to-hand contact with his wife, First Lady Melania Trump.

He has clashed in the past with May - even though she is a fellow conservative who shares his view that defense spending should be hiked - and with her predecessor, David Cameron, who challenged Mr. Trump's anti-Muslim campaign stance as "divisive, stupid and wrong".

Mr Smyth said he hoped the protests, and specifically the Trump baby blimp, do not upset the American public.

Meanwhile, in the capital city thousands will gather in a various of protests to voice their views against the United States president, including a march that could be attended by as many as 50,000 people and a flying protest involving the "Baby Trump" balloon.

Here is what the Donald has planned in his jaunt to Britain...
