How are you marking Donald Trump's United Kingdom visit?

The declaration was odd given the topic being discussed was whether the President would support a Hard Brexit for the UK. I think they agree with me on immigration.

The clip, which can be seen below, is predictably rambling.

Hours before his arrival here, Trump said he is "fine" about any protests during his visit to the UK.

President Donald Trump touched down in Britain on Thursday, where he will get the red carpet treatment on a brief visit: Military bands at a gala dinner, lunch with the prime minister at her country residence, then tea with the queen at Windsor Castle before flying off to one of his golf clubs in Scotland.

A brief visit to the newly-relocated US Embassy at Nine Elms in south-west London is also believed to be on the cards.

Well, at least Melania Trump is spending her time in London - and maybe Donald Trump could take some learning from that.

It was announced last week that Trump will spend just one night in the capital.

Mr Trump's planned visit has been met with plenty of anger, with 50,000 protesters expected to take to the streets of central London on Friday.

On Friday, Trump will bypass the mass protests in London as he heads to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst with May for a military display, before talks at her country residence, Chequers.

"The President is not avoiding anything", he said.

Mr Smyth, who is originally from Ireland, said Trump fans had been given a bad rap, and there had been lots of support for the pub's temporary renaming.

LONDON ― President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump touch down in London on Thursday for a working visit, and while his meeting schedule will keep him nearly exclusively outside of the capital, she will be spending some time in town.

Scotland Yard said it has specialist plans in place to ensure the event will be secure and said in a statement: "We are preparing for a multi-faceted policing and security operation, involving the protection and movement of the president".

May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump at the stately home that will be attended by senior ministers and about 100 business leaders, including the likes of Blackstone group, Blackrock, Diageo, McLaren and Arup.

His wife, who will spend Friday with the prime minister's husband, Philip May, is likely to experience some of it when she visits a school in the city.

The trek, coming more than a year and a half into his presidency, does not have the trappings of a state visit.

Trump was making his first trip to Great Britain as president after a tense summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels that began Wednesday and on the heels of ruptures in May's government because of the crisis over Britain's exit from the European Union.

Police forces from across the country have been asked to send officers to assist the Metropolitan Police.

The 2004 Green Day hit, "American Idiot" is now skyrocketing to the top of the United Kingdom charts ahead of the visit - a boost fueled in large part by the efforts of British protesters and social media.
