London awaits Trump's visit, braces for protests

Hoodoo Zephyr penned lyrics to the Scottish tune mocking Donald Trump's personal life and politics. They will be doing that in concert with the Civil Aviation Authority, the US Air Force and the RAF.

Trump will then travel to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen before heading to Scotland for a private part of the four-day visit, ahead of travelling to Helsinki for a summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The president was delayed for nearly an hour when the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels he had been attending overran because he demanded member states increase their contributions faster than originally planned.

Yet according to David Wemer of the Atlantic Council, a new U.S. -U.K. trade deal isn't a high priority for the Trump administration.

"They will. I have no doubt about it", he said.

"I think that's why Brexit happened", he said, noting that Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations".

Liberal Democrat former deputy prime minister Sir Nick Clegg said the U.S. leader had "every right" to come to the United Kingdom but added that he would be attending an anti-Trump demonstration. Trump was largely steering clear of London, where protests are planned and where organizers had permission to fly a blimp over Parliament portraying the president as an orange crying baby.

Ignoring all diplomatic niceties, the convention-shredding U.S. president set up the four-day visit with a rebuke of his beleaguered host as she battles to stop her government falling apart over Brexit.

Former Ukip leader and Trump fan Nigel Farage described it as the "biggest ever insult to a sitting president".

Days after the Nobel Committee awarded Liu Xiaobo the Peace prize; Chinese authorities put Liu Xia also under house arrest. I hope that our parents and my brother-in-law [Liu Xiaobo] could rest in peace now and keep blessing her [from heaven].

"The pictures of children being held in what appear to be cages are deeply disturbing", May stated to the House of Commons.

The trip includes meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May, who has described the U.S. as Britain's strongest ally, and is determined to secure a trade deal after the country acts on Brexit and leaves the European Union in March 2019. On Friday, the two leaders will participate in a bilateral meeting and joint press conference.

Top it off with the introduction of trade policies that have targeted some European industries - even though European nations are longtime friends accustomed to easy trade with the USA - and it is not surprising that Trump's itinerary will keep him out of central London on Friday, when large protests are planned. Many thousands of Britons are expected to protest against Mr Trump in London and other cities.

"It's important for us to send a powerful signal to those who are resisting and campaigning in America that we are standing in solidarity with them", Rehman said.

Johnson has told reporters that Americans respected peaceful protest.

In June of previous year, Trump mocked Khan for his handling of the London Bridge terror attack and called him "pathetic". More than 50,000 signed up to protest on Friday alone, per Reuters.

For Gorgeous, Trump has singled out marginalised groups in his presidency.

"Trump's entire political argument revolves and relies around a division between people, and a blame culture".
