May hopes Trump visit will boost US-UK links

  • JAN. 27 2017 British Prime Minister Theresa May and U.S. President Donald Trump walk along The Colonnade of the West Wing at The White House

They plan to loft a large blimp-like balloon over Westminster Palace, depicting a bronzed "Trump Baby" in a pair of nappies, clutching a cellphone.

That is one of the few central London locations Mr Trump will visit during his time here.

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

But there are still plenty of detractors, as loudly demonstrated by a passenger in vehicle driving past the United States flag-adorned pub who shouted "F*** Trump", to which Mr Smyth chuckled.

The events include an anti-Trump welly toss, a Trump's head coconut shy and satirical mini golf.

On Friday he will be given a demonstration of the UK's military capabilities and integrated UK-US military training before travelling to Chequers for "substantive bilateral talks", to include foreign policy issues including Russian Federation, trade, Brexit, and the Middle East.

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

The U.S. president's brash style and hardline "America First" policies have caused consternation across Britain's political spectrum and society.

The US president will touch down at Stansted Airport on Thursday evening.

The commander-in-chief is due to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle and Theresa May at her country home in Chequers, before travelling north to Scotland.

U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson said Wednesday that citizens are often advised to avoid public demonstrations and that he is not upset by the decision to allow the "Trump baby" balloon to be displayed near Parliament.

It's just been announced: "Donald Trump is coming to Britain on a state visit later this year", reads a Facebook event description for a protest planned July 13-14 that has about 60,000 saying they will attend.

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.

While in Great Britain, Mr Trump will be running to a tight schedule which involves a high class dinner at Blenheim Palace, surveying United Kingdom military forces and visiting Chequers, the Prime Minister's official retreat in Aylesbury. "And I've spent the last eight months going all around the country, meeting people and getting their point of view of all kinds of people whether it's politicians or people working in factories.I don't feel that at all".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has come under fire for his approval of a blimp featuring US President Donald Trump dressed as a baby.
