President Trump meets with Queen at Buckingham Palace

LGBTQ community slams Trump’s tweet recognizing Pride Month ‘breathtakingly disingenuous

President Donald Trump met with Queen Elizabeth II Monday during two-day visit to Britain that's meant to strengthen ties between the two nations, although the trip was immediately at risk of being overshadowed by Brexit turmoil and a political feud with London's mayor.

A few hours after US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to call London Mayor Sadiq Khan a "stone-cold loser", Elle UK released a video message of Khan responding to Trump.

The president called the mayor a "stone cold loser", adding: "Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, (Bill) de Blasio, who has also done a awful job - only half his height".

The visit to the Abbey, the historic place of burial and coronations for English and British Kings and Queens for almost 1,000 years, was hosted by British Royal Prince Andrew and the chapter officers of the Abbey itself.

They were greeted by British Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt, one of more than a dozen Conservative Party lawmakers jockeying to succeed May, who is stepping down as premier.

Speaking on Sky News on Sunday, he said: "I think it's important for us to have good relations with our closest ally, and important for our allies to be here for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings; we've got to have good relations with the USA - but I don't think we should be rolling out the red carpet".

Britain's relationship with the United States is an enduring alliance, but some British voters see Mr Trump as crude, volatile and opposed to their values on issues ranging from global warming to his treatment of women.

There are expected to be bigger protests in London than the last time Mr Trump came to the United Kingdom - a working visit in July past year, when he avoided the British capital.

"London is now a city where young kids stab each other to death on a regular basis".

Even if they are not at the state banquet, Farage and another Trump friend, former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, could well attend a reciprocal event at the USA ambassador's London residence on Tuesday.

"We have thousands of objects from all sorts of protests that have happened in London and this one is very interesting for us at this moment in time", Ament said of the Trump Baby blimp. But many Britons, including senior politicians, oppose the visit, whereas Obama was welcomed enthusiastically and the queen was known to have a warm relationship with him and Michelle Obama.

At a meeting with May, Trump will also warn Britain that security cooperation, a cornerstone of the western intelligence network, could be hurt if London allows China's Huawei a role in building parts of the 5G network, the next generation of cellular technology.

He is expected to use his meeting with United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May to ratchet up the pressure on Britain to cut ties with the Chinese tech giant Huawei over U.S. spying fears.

The Queen, Prince Charles and Camilla greeted Donald and Melania Trump at Buckingham Palace after they landed in the Marine One helicopter on one of the palace's gardens. He is likely to be shadowed by demonstrators, who during his last visit flooded the streets and flew an inflatable balloon depicting the president as a baby.

A number of leading Brexit supporters are calling for the U.K.to prepare to leave the European Union without any deal at all, which means Britain would have no trade arrangement with the bloc, likely resulting in economic disruption.
