Donald Trump faces 'carnival of protest' on trip to Britain

JAN. 27 2017 British Prime Minister Theresa May and U.S. President Donald Trump walk along The Colonnade of the West Wing at The White House

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has granted permission for a giant inflatable figure depicting Trump as a baby to fly over Westminster for two hours on the second day of the president's visit.

Opponents have threatened mass protests against the visit, but Mr Trump is expected to avoid areas such as central London where demonstrators could gather. Some plan to stage an "all-night noise protest" outside the barricades surrounding Winfield House later Thursday, with those attending urged to "bring pots, drums and vuvuzelas".

Ms Menon, who is part of a group who crowdfunded the balloon, said: 'We know that behind the humour of this the Trump baby represents a whole multitude of campaigns and issues.

Trump has long voiced his support for Brexit, saying it was part of a global uprising that ultimately thrust him to power, and he was at his Scottish golf resort the day after Britons voted to leave the European Union, saying the outcome was a "great thing".

Days later, thousands marched on Parliament to protest the decision to offer a Trump full state visit to Britain, and 1.8 million people signed a petition saying the invitation should be canceled because he might embarrass the Queen.

His "America First" policies, including the decision to pull the USA out of the Paris climate accord and the nuclear deal with Iran, also have brought him into conflict with Britain's leaders over substantive geopolitical issues.

The US president is set to touch down for his visit on Thursday after sparking a new firestorm on the global stage. "It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do, and doesn't express the opinion of the British people that I've met", he told the BBC's Today programme.

Trump will spend the weekend at the former, which he described as a "magical place", before heading to Helsinki, Finland, for a much-anticipated summit on July 16 with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

On Friday he will visit PM Theresa May at Chequers, set to be followed by a meeting with Her Majesty The Queen at Windsor Castle.

"I get along with her very well, I have very good relations".

Nearly all of Trump's activities will be outside the city: He'll meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, not Buckingham Palace.

The reason: demonstrations are planned against President Donald Trump, in London, as well as Windsor, Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge, Cardiff, Glasgow and the west coast of Scotland, where Trump has a golf course.

A YouGov poll on Wednesday showed 77 percent of Britons had an unfavorable opinion of Trump and just 50 percent thought his visit should go ahead.

"We want the world to know that there are people here in the United Kingdom that are very happy the president is visiting", she said.
