Historic photos show every time American presidents met British Kings and Queens

Fence around US ambassador’s official residence

The six-metre high blimp, dubbed "Trump Baby", has been granted permission to fly above Parliament Square for two hours on Friday morning.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Mr Ruddy said: 'Trump will think the baby balloon is about him so it's probably a positive thing.

Donald Trump's son Eric has arrived in Scotland ahead of his father's visit to the UK.

On reaching the residence the pair walked across the lawn hand-in-hand.

But the president will avoid London nearly entirely during his trip, which has been characterised as an attempt to avoid humiliation over the planned protests surrounding his visit.

The antipathy between Mr. Trump and segments of the British public started during the 2016 presidential campaign, when Mr. Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. Trump's predecessor, Barack Obama, was afforded a state visit to the United Kingdom in 2011 and also came on a further three occasions.

On Thursday, Trump will travel to Blenheim Palace, the 18th-century stately home where Britain's World War Two leader Winston Churchill was born and spent most of his childhood.

Trump may not be able to ignore the presence of protesters entirely.

Ahead of Trump's arrival, the USA embassy advised U.S. citizens in London to "keep a low profile" during Trump's visit.

The U.S. Embassy has even warned American citizens to keep a low profile during the visit because of the planned protests - the sort of warning usually issued in more volatile locations.

Trade war erupts as China fights back against USA tariffs
Tokyo closed 1.1% higher and European markets were up more than 1% in morning trading before turning negative on Friday afternoon. Trade disputes are nothing new for the two economic superpowers, and they are not confined to targeting each other.

A high fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent. She will then head to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth II in the afternoon. That includes this week's resignations of members of the Cabinet and Parliament over May's proposals to keep some agreements intact after leaving the European Union next year.

The blimp's appearance in central London was approved by the Greater London Authority, and Mayor Sadiq Khan has defended the decision, saying it is not for him to be a censor or to decide what is in good or bad taste.

Mr Trump and his wife Melania arrived at Stansted airport, where he was met by the UK's global trade secretary Liam Fox.

"Trump baby will fly".

"I think they like me in the UK".

"I think that's why Brexit happened", he told a news conference before flying to Stansted Airport north of London.

He added: "We'll see if they're still there in 10 years". It's bringing to light his infantile way of doing politics and the dangers behind his politics.

On Saturday, Trump supporters will rally near the USA embassy in Nine Elms, south London, for an event titled "Welcoming Trump to Britain Rally - Make Britain Great Again", at which a number of right-wing figures are scheduled to speak.

Mr Trump is believed to be spending the weekend playing golf at his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire, which he bought in 2014, although there has been no official confirmation of his plans.
