Trumps kick off United Kingdom visit with black-tie gala

A rapper has nailed why people are going to be protesting Trump’s UK visit Here are the 12 funniest reactions to Donald Trump's UK visit

Mr Trump said earlier this week that the United Kingdom was in "turmoil", following the resignation of cabinet ministers David Davis and Boris Johnson.

It is not simply the protesters, who are expected to dog Trump throughout his visit, including his weekend in Scotland, but his fraught relationship with political leaders accustomed to harmonious exchanges with USA leaders, a tradition of unity that goes back at least to the vital World War II partnership of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.

The Donald made the comment while speaking at an emergency press conference called by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation after Trump insisted on increased defence spending.

"I partially won an election because of immigration", he said, also pointing to Italy's recent vote, in which Giuseppe Conte took government after campaigning on a populist anti-immigration platform.

Trump will be using London as a base during his visit, Johnson added.

People wait to see the arrival of US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Winfield House in London on July 12, 2018.

"She sits there looking plain in her poker face and no one knows what she's thinking behind the mask", Brown said.

"I think they like me a lot in the UK", Trump said in Brussels.

The largest demonstration is expected in central London on Friday where a giant "Trump baby" balloon will fly close to Parliament after being given the go-ahead by London mayor Sadiq Khan.

Addressing Mr Trump in front of an audience of business leaders at Winston Churchill's birthplace, Mrs May insisted that Brexit provides an opportunity for an "unprecedented" agreement to boost jobs and growth.

"Who wouldn't take Kate's picture and make lots of money if she does the nude sunbathing thing", Trump said in another tweet.

"I would love to say that I think this is going to be a hugely successful visit but I think it's going to be very hard", he said at a pro-Trump gathering in parliament.

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. "I think they agree with me on immigration".

British pageantry was on grand display Thursday as President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived on the historic grounds of Blenheim Palace for an exclusive black tie gala hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May.

"When we leave the European Union we will begin to chart a new course for Britain in the world and our global alliances will be stronger than ever", May said ahead of Trump's visit.

One person missing at the palace dinner, though, will be the queen, who will be hosting the president and first lady for tea at Windsor Castle on Friday afternoon.

"I think it's amusing. Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future", she said in excerpts released in advance.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told reporters his country has no plans to increase defense funding.

But she also warned Trump not to ignore the "malign behaviour" of Moscow when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki next week.

Mr Trump's son Eric has arrived in Scotland for a golfing visit to Trump International Golf Links at Menie, Aberdeenshire, and Trump Turnberry, near Girvan, South Ayrshire.
