President Trump Takes Tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle

President Donald Trump said he felt "unwelcome" in London after its mayor, Sadiq Khan, permitted a 20-foot-tall angry "Trump Baby" blimp depicting him to be flown during his visit to the UK.

He told The Sun newspaper before his arrival that he was looking forward to the visit, complimenting the queen and marveling at the lack of controversy associated with her over the years.

He claimed he was not trying to pit Johnson against his host, but added: "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

Before the Sun interview was published, Ms May invoked Winston Churchill as she addressed Mr Trump and business leaders at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, the grand 18th-century country house which was the British World War II leader's birthplace.

May notes the "our longest-standing and deepest security and defense partner" and credits Trump for pushing North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners to increase their defense spending.

'You have a mayor who has done a awful job in London.

He said: 'Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Nevertheless, traditional business models are no longer sustainable and high-quality publications, like ours, are being forced to look for new ways to keep going. "I think they agree with me on immigration". "He has done a awful job". Activist Leo Murray told the Associated Press that city officials "originally told us that they didn't recognize Trump Baby as legitimate protest".

Afterwards, Mr Trump and the First Lady will make their way to Stansted Airport, where they will take Air Force One to Glasgow for the next part of their tour. We need to ensure there is a balance between protection and public safety and the public's right to peacefully protest, ' Assistant Chief Constable Mark Williams said.

Trump's comments mirror criticism from the likes of former UKIP leader Nigel Farage who has warned that European rules prevent the United Kingdom from running its own trade policy.

Following a visit to the Royal Military Academy at Sandhurst on Friday morning, Trump flew to Chequers in Buckinghamshire by helicopter to avoid the protesters who are demonstrating his visit.

"I'm afraid it is absolutely in Donald Trump's playbook".
