US President Donald Trump on Friday played down his extraordinary attack on Britain's plans for Brexit, praising Prime Minister Theresa May and insisting bilateral relations "have never been stronger", even as tens of thousands protested in London against his visit.

Detective Inspector Stephen McCulloch said the protester breached a no-fly zone over Turnberry hotel, committing a criminal offense.

President Donald Trump pulled off a diplomatic backflip Friday, reversing himself on trade, Brexit and his critical assessment of British Prime Minister Theresa May while insisting the U.S. -U.K. relationship is "the highest level of special".

Police are searching for a a paraglider who breached a no-fly zone and flew a protest banner over the golf resort where Trump is staying in Edinburgh, Scotland.

While he would have expected his staff at the golf resort to cheer him on now that he was visiting his property for the first time since becoming president, he was in for a surprise when a flying Greenpeace activist flew over the skies with a banner that read: "Well below par".

Greenpeace also telephoned the police air incident advisor 10 minutes before the glider arrived, telling them what was planned.

Little information was released about exactly how Mr Trump would be spending his time in Scotland, before he tweeted on Saturday afternoon: "I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf - my primary form of exercise!"

He will hold talks with Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister Theresa May.

Wearing a baseball cap emblazoned with "USA" for a round of golf, Trump at one point waved at dozens of protesters who were chanting "No Trump!" just a few hundred yards away from a beach beside his Trump Turnberry course.

Trump's Marine One departure from the ambassador's residence was met by jeers from demonstrators banging pots and pans, and another pack of protesters lined roads near the palace. "I'll be over there just as the decision's coming in", he said.

"I didn't criticize the prime minister". That was just one of several helicopter rides on the agenda for Trump, whose staff opted to keep him largely out of central London and the swarms of demonstrators who are likely to provide some of the defining images of his first official trip to the United Kingdom.

Protesters carried signs with messages including "Dump Trump", "Love Trumps Hate" and "Tweet off Twitter twit".

Mundell said: "It's extremely important that we welcome the person who is the head of state if he United States and duly elected president". British police said they were trying to trace the pilot. Maybe we'll speak to him when I get over there.

Trump has said he plans to raise the issue.
