Trump visit to United Kingdom begins on awkward note

President Trump and first lady Melania Trump departed Tuesday for a weeklong trip to Europe on a four-nation tour with stops in Belgium England Scotland and Finland

"But from the public, the welcome will be far from warm", he added saying there would be protests across the country against Trump's "abysmal record on human rights, his repugnant attitude towards women and his disgusting treatment of minorities".

"You know I've been reading a lot on Brexit over the last couple of days and its seems to be turning a little bit differently where they're getting at least partially involved back with the European Union", he said.

More than 50,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London, where they intend to fly an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper.

Trump's visit to the United Kingdom, the 12th US President to make such a tour, comes amid what he described as "turmoil" for the United Kingdom government, as Prime Minister May faces down a rebellion from within her own party over her Brexit strategy.

Matthew Butcher, an anti-Trump campaigner and one of the "babysitters" of the balloon, said: "I think that the thing that the Trump balloon does is that it brings an element of fun to the protests, but it also gets under Donald Trump's very thin skin". "It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do, and doesn't express the opinion of the British people that I've met", he told the BBC's Today programme. The people voted to break it up so I would imagine that's what they would do, but maybe they're taking a different route - I don't know if that is what they voted for'.

Then on Monday, he will be off to Helsinki to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"And me mate said "If you call it the Trump Arms I'll organise the party".

Trump has always been a Brexit supporter and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after Brexit, something heralded by eurosceptics as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

It was during that trip to Washington that she invited him to the UK.

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

Mr Trump will then travel to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen before heading to Scotland for the private part of his four-day visit.

After a dinner for business leaders in Blenheim Palace, birthplace of Winston Churchill, he will spent the night in the ambassador's residence in north London.

The state visit has never been scheduled - there is fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning, among other things, that Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the USA ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park rather than in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen. His late mother hailed from Scotland, and he owns two luxury golf courses there.
