London Will See Two Trumps: The President and a Balloon Parody

Trump is scheduled to arrive on Thursday to have dinner with May at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire - the birthplace of Winston Churchill - before retiring for the night at the US Ambassador's House in Regent's Park, London.

After spending the night at Winfield House in London, hosted by his ambassador Mr Johnson, the president will join the prime minister to watch a United Kingdom military exercise, before the pair travel to Chequers - the PM's country residence in Buckinghamshire - for bilateral talks.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.K. Robert "Woody" Johnson said the president and the prime minister are "on the same page" when it comes to Russia's "malign activities".

"Our armed forces have fought together for over a century and no two countries work closer together in defence co-operation and that element of the visit is a reflection of that".

A barrage of nationwide protests will greet US President Donald Trump's four-day trip to Britain from Thursday, with organisers hoping to stage one of the country's biggest demonstrations in decades following a series of diplomatic spats.

But there are concerns that anti-Trump protests in London could overshadow the trip.

In a teleconference with the media ahead of Trump's visit to Britain next week, Johnson said Trump "would love to do a bilateral trade deal and he is really ready to step up on that the minute we get the go-ahead to do it".

She added: "As with any protest, we are a free and open democracy and we believe in the right to peaceful protest".

Thousands are also expected to line the streets of London during the two-day visit.

Later, Trump will travel to Scotland to prepare for his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin slated for July 16 in Finland.

But Sir Westmacott said that the visit will also send a message to the President and America that the British "have lots to offer" in terms of military capabilities.

May invited Trump for a formal state visit after she met him in Washington shortly after his inauguration.

A spokeswoman for British Prime Minister Theresa May denied to The Guardian that the prime minister's use of the Chequers retreat to meet with Trump was designed specifically to help the president avoid major protests.

Instead the president will be whisked off for a tour of some of England's most impressive historic buildings before departing for Scotland for a relaxing weekend, part of which is expected to be spent on the golf course.

The pub, called The Jameson, will host an event of Trump-themed celebrations on July 14 with American-themed food and drink to welcome the president to the country.

He said the highlight will be the chance for the president and first lady to meet the queen.

They added that Trump Baby "can become a permanent feature of this terrible Presidency, a constant, unmissable reminder of the contempt with which this embarrassment of a man is held by everyone outside of his deranged, bigoted base".
