Melania channels her inner Disney princess in London

After taking a firm stance both days of the conference, which included calling Germany a "captive" of Russian energy, Trump did say USA commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation remains strong and he thanked other members for "additional money they are putting up". The president said on Tuesday, "I think they like me a lot in the United Kingdom".

He said her former foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, would make an "excellent" prime minister, speaking just days after Johnson resigned his position in protest over May's Brexit plans.

During his news conference on Thursday, the U.S. president also appeared to refer to Ireland as part of the United Kingdom.

Trump said during an interview with The Sun published Thursday while the president was in the United Kingdom that Khan has "done a very bad job on terrorism" by allowing many migrants to live in the London.

Trump even went so far as to question whether May's plan constituted a true exit from the European Union: "The deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

In other news from this morning's press conference, Trump stunted expectations when he refused to comment on the UK's current Brexit turmoil.

May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump there, attended by senior ministers and about 100 business leaders, including from Blackstone group, Blackrock, Diageo, McLaren and Arup. "I think meeting with people is great". "I think he's got what it takes".

He also described Turnberry as "magical" and "one of my favourite places", adding: "My mother was born in Scotland and I have great friendships over there". It also requires all members to charge the same tariffs on imports from countries outside the bloc. The president claimed Europe is "losing its culture" because of immigration from the Middle East and Africa.

Protests coinciding with Mr Trump's visit are set to take place in Glasgow this evening and in Edinburgh on Saturday. He obviously likes me, and says very good things about me.

The president and first lady will travel to Windsor on Friday afternoon to meet the Queen, before flying to Scotland for what is being treated as a private visit.

Donald Trump, 72, is about to visit the United Kingdom for the first time since being elected president in November 2016, and the British people aren't prepared to give him a warm welcome.

People wait to see the arrival of US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Winfield House in London on July 12, 2018.

For her part, Merkel stayed cool despite Trump's provocations.

He told press they would have to wait and see if he recognised Russia's annexation of the territory from Ukraine, but he also signed up, one day earlier, to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation declaration on non-recognition of Russia's "illegal" move. He then went on to proclaim that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members had agreed to increasing their defense spending. But there was little evidence other leaders had bowed to his wishes on that front.

This move comes after Trump's border policy was revealed to have been separating parents from their children.

Protests are expected against Trump, whose policies - including a travel ban on a number of predominantly Muslim countries, the detention of child migrants on the US-Mexico border and the imposition of tariffs on European Union steel and aluminium exports - have all been criticised by the UK.
