Trump, after questioning Mays Brexit plan, arrives in hot spot Britain

"It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do and I don't think certainly it doesn't express the opinion of the British people I met", he said.

Sarah Elliott, chairwoman of Republicans Overseas UK, told CNN she did not think Trump would be fazed by the stunt.

A giant baby Trump blimp is set to fly over London during the U.S. president's visit to the UK.

Trump flew in after a fraught North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels where he piled pressure on allies to double their defense spending.

Earlier this week Mr Trump said it was "up to the people" whether the prime minister stayed on after two cabinet ministers resigned over her Brexit policy. "They agree with me on immigration".

The US Ambassador to London, Woody Johnson, insisted last week that Trump's itinerary was not intentionally designed for him to avoid encountering throngs of protesters.

Opponents to the controversial USA leader have threatened mass protests but Mr Trump is expected to avoid areas such as central London where demonstrators are likely to gather.

Who is Brett Kavanaugh, Trump’s Nominee to the Supreme Court?
Republicans, meanwhile, hope centrist Democrats running for re-election in conservative-leaning states will back Kavanaugh . There were also pledges of open minds by key senators whose votes will most likely determine the outcome.

Giuliani: No Cohen Concerns 'As Long As He Tells The Truth'
Wehle told MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle on Monday that it would be "impossible" for Mueller to agree to Giuliani's demands. Politico's Josh Gerstein was the first to point out the discrepancy between Giuliani's comments and Trump's denial.

Rather than square the ball up, Sterling opted to try and break his near three year goal drought, but couldn't finish. In the first half England's ball was captured by 59 percent, then Sweden's possession was 41 percent.

While Mr Johnson may now be a backbencher, Mr Trump said he hoped he would still see the former foreign minister - another blow to the fragile position of Mrs May.

Topics addressed by Trump in the two and a half minute time-frame include the many properties he owns in Ireland and Scotland, how he has nothing to say about Brexit, how he won the state of Wisconsin even though Ronald Reagan did not and finally, his sentiments about Ireland. London Mayor Sadiq Khan - who has had a particularly contentious relationship with President Trump - approved protesters' use of a "Trump baby" blimp during the president's visit to Great Britain.

After the president and First Lady Melania Trump arrived at Stansted Airport, Trump said he was "fine" about any protests during his visit. Organizers now say they hope to take the blimp on a "world tour", following Trump on his global diplomatic engagements. But instead of attending business in London, which is what most heads of state who arrive in the United Kingdom do, Trump will head to a business sector gala at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill which is outside the city. Vince Cable, the leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said, "Most of us don't think he is particularly good judge on Brexit or anything else". There, he'll meet with Prime Minister Theresa May and later, Queen Elizabeth II.

However, the Scottish Government approved the plans with the UK Supreme Court eventually rejecting Mr Trump's legal challenge in 2015.

On Friday, May and Trump will hold talks on Brexit, relations with Russian Federation, and trade ties at the prime minister's Chequers country residence, followed by a press conference.

Lead guitarist Geoff Sprinks said: "We will not be anywhere near where he's going to be, it would be lovely to have played at one of the protests".

Donald Trump will then visit the Queen with first lady Melania Trump at Windsor Castle before heading off to Theresa May's countryside home Chequers.
