Donald Trump's Entourage: ONE THOUSAND Staff Join President On UK Visit

The fence cuts through Regent’s Park

LONDONPresident Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump touch down in London on Thursday for a working visit, and while his meeting schedule will keep him nearly exclusively outside of the capital, she will be spending some time in town.

British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II attend the formal opening of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) in the ballroom at Buckingham Palace on April 19, 2018, in London.

Mr Trump - whose mother was from the Isle of Lewis - is due to touch down in Scotland on Friday night before spending the weekend at the famous South Ayrshire course, which he bought in 2014.

May hopes Trump, who landed at Stansted airport before flying by helicopter to the US ambassador's London residence, will help to accelerate a future free trade deal, though his public comments on Brexit cast a shadow over the visit.

Trump confidant Chris Ruddy believes the President, who is due to fly into the United Kingdom today, will not react how people think he will to the balloon.

Organisers said they will transport the balloon to Scotland overnight, and will fly it elsewhere on Saturday even if their Ayrshire application is turned down. "Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all".

Nick Hurd, Britain's Policing Minister, told parliament police expected more than 100 protests across the country, including two large demonstrations in London on Friday, and there were robust and proportionate plans in place.

Hundreds of thousands are predicted to come on to the streets to demonstrate against a man they described as "dangerous and divisive".

The dog had previously been rescued from a puppy mill in Missouri when she was five years old, according to the newspaper. The 9-year-old pooch passed away in her sleep Monday night, her owner, Megan Brainard , told the Star Tribune .

Rarely has a foreign leader been so mocked on an official visit - London's mayor, a Muslim who has challenged Mr. Trump's world view - okayed the balloon, which is an apt symbol of Mr. Trump's tempestuous relationship with Britain, traditionally the United States' closest ally.

John Scardino, 58, a high school teacher from the United States who has lived in Britian for 18 years and will be at Friday's protests in London, is dubious that the embassy alert would have any effect on crowd size.

Labour Party legislator Paul Flynn, who has criticized Trump in Parliament, says Trump has outraged Britons - and people around the world - with his harsh treatment of immigrants.

Trump is expected to arrive in London Thursday after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium. Nicola Sturgeon made it clear that she would be prepared to meet Mr Trump but no...

From there, Trump and his wife Melania are expected to travel to Windsor to meet Queen Elizabeth.

For protesters in Edinburgh they have a particularly varied day to look forward to.

On Friday, May and Trump will hold talks on Brexit, relations with Russian Federation and trade ties at the prime minister's Chequers country residence followed by a press conference.
