LIVE pictures of President Trump's UK visit

His visit is expected to be met with a number of protests in various cities including London - where the 19-foot Trump balloon is expected to fly over Parliament on Friday.

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.

Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, the British government is hoping for a quick trade deal with the USA after it leaves the European Union.

Ms Elliott, who is originally from Virginia, said she is hopeful there could be a state visit by Mr Trump next year.

The Trumps will have left town the night before for Scotland, where the President owns two golf properties, Trump Turnberry and Trump Aberdeen.

According to a notice posted on the embassy's website on Tuesday, "Numerous demonstrations are being planned for July 12 to 14, 2018, surrounding" Trump's visit.

The four-day trip, which will include talks with Prime Minister Theresa May, tea with Queen Elizabeth II and a private weekend in Scotland, is set to be greeted by a leftist-organized mass protest in London on Friday.

Most of the protests will take place that day in central London, the USA officials said, with some occurring the days before and after.

His "America First" policies, including the decision to pull the US out of the Paris climate accord and the nuclear deal with Iran, also have brought him into conflict with Britain's leaders over substantive geopolitical issues.

At all times, the President will be accompanied by a White House doctor and one of five rotating military aides who carry the nuclear "football" - equipped with communication tools and a book with prepared war plans.

Its advice to US citizens was to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

"I think that's absolutely disgusting", Eugene Bibby, who runs a domestic appliance fix shop in Tommyfield Market in Oldham, told Fox News about the balloon.

May has had to defend Trump's visit in the face of fiery criticism from opposition lawmakers.

US President Donald Trump has shrugged off protests planned across the United Kingdom ahead of his arrival there Thursday, claiming he is very popular in Britain because of his hardline stance on immigration.

Mr Trump will meet the US Ambassador at Winfield House after arriving and then head to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
