Donald Trump visit: How Americans living in the UK feel

Donald Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday for his first visit as USA president, flying into a whirlwind of protests against him and political turmoil over Brexit.

May hopes Trump, who arrived at Stansted airport from Brussels, will help accelerate a future free trade deal, though his public comments on Brexit have cast a shadow over the visit.

"It gives off the hint that this is an attempt to drive a wedge between the United States and UK, at a time the UK is leaving the European Union, it's forcing the UK back to closer ties with the European Union because they'll be pushed away from the USA", he said.

Trump is also expected to travel to Scotland, where he owns two golf courses.

While the many thousands are expected to line the streets and protest against Trump, politicians have become involved too.

Mr Trump arrives Thursday afternoon following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and largely avoids the capital's centre and the protesters.

On Brexit negotiations: Not convinced by the UK's handling of the talks, Trump said he would take a "tougher" approach with Brussels.

One such protest will entail a 19-foot-high orange balloon shaped like Trump as a baby, which London Mayor Sadiq Khan - who's feuded with the president - approved under "the right to peaceful protest".

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan challenged Mr Khan over the decision, suggesting the mayor had approved of the blimp due to personal animosity towards the US President, the Daily Mail reports.

As anti-Trump activists demonstrate during the U.S. president's visit, supporters will gather in the British capital to welcome him to Britain.

The demonstrators plan to loft a large blimp-like balloon over the skies beside Westminster Palace, depicting a bronzed "Trump Baby" in diapers, clutching a mobile phone.

Mr and Mrs Trump will also join the Queen for tea at the Castle.

"It's typical, but honestly Donald Trump's legacy will outlive any big orange balloon and the matters that will be discussed at Chequers and now in Brussels are much more important and will have a much longer effect than any day rally", she said.

They will then spend the night at the American ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, Winfield House.

Trump then even went as far as hitting out at Theresa May after she criticised him for the retweets.

One of the demonstrations will begin on the evening of July 12, at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, the birthplace of Winston Churchill. "I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him", said Mr Trump.

On Friday, Trump will join May at a United Kingdom military demonstration at a defense site, after which they will go to May's country home Chequers for bilateral talks, according to the Evening Standard.

Over a lunch of Dover sole, lamb and lemon meringue pie, the leaders will discuss Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.

During the dinner the Countess of Wessex's Orchestra will perform "a series of classic British and American hits" and the Royal regiment of Scotland will "pipe the President out at the end".
