Donald Trump protests held in Wales during United Kingdom visit

Donald Trump protests held in Wales during United Kingdom visit

After landing at Stansted Airport, the US President is set to fly to the US Ambassador's residence by helicopter, where he will stay the night.

In a statement, the group said it was a "victory that Donald Trump does not appear to have any official engagements in London".

The sad news for Trump Baby is that Trump himself apparently won't be spending much time in London itself and is unlikely to see his inflated, infantile likeness in person.

"I think it's great".

"So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".

Mr Trump has recently been under fire for his own immigration policy, which resulted in the separation of immigrant families.

He was met at Stansted Airport by dignitaries including International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and the United States ambassador Woody Johnson.

Chancellor Philip Hammond was more optimistic, saying the U.S. president had been "nodding furiously" while Mrs May was speaking during Thursday night's dinner with Blenheim Palace and had yet to talk to her about the plans, which were published on Thursday in a White Paper.

The UK will have to wait and see what Mrs May has to see to President Trump later on in the visit.

There are also plans for protestors to gather close to the U.S. ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, where Trump and his wife, Melania, will stay overnight on Thursday.

But influential Conservative backbencher Jacob Rees-Mogg, who opposes Mrs May's plan for post-Brexit trade with the European Union, said many Conservative MPs shared his view.

"We have enough difficulty with the European Union", he added. From there his meetings with Mrs May will be at her country home, Chequers, which offers a "more informal setting", according to a Downing Street spokesman.

But she also warned Mr Trump not to ignore the "malign behaviour" of Russian Federation.

Only one person, the digital entrepreneur and philanthropist Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, has publicly refused the invitation.

President Trump on Thursday wrapped the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, leaving behind a trail of confusion, and landed in London where he faces chaos and anger. This part of the visit is being considered private.

The demonstrations come ahead of a mass protest scheduled to begin at 2:00pm on Friday in central London, and dozens of other actions against Trump-amounting to what the Stop Trump Coalition and Stand Up to Trump have dubbed a "carnival of resistance".

The Police Commissioner for Lincolnshire later tweeted that "sadly" there were reports officers who put photographs of the "sorry conditions" on social media were being "sought out".

The U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom on Wednesday downplayed the hype over a giant balloon depicting a baby President Trump due to float down the streets of London in protest of his visit this week - saying it doesn't reflect the views of the majority of British people.

Mr Trump will spend the weekend in Scotland where he has two golf courses and plans to play at least once.
