Trump to meet Queen as United Kingdom rolls out red carpet

Despite Chorus Of Discontent Trump To Meet Queen Elizabeth Week London Will See Two Trumps: The President and a Balloon Parody

"I was talking to regulars who are looking forward to the visit and I said "Let's set up the Trump Arms while he is here".

May will host Trump and the First Lady for a black tie dinner at Blenheim Palace on Thursday evening.

After that comes a working lunch at Chequers - the prime minister's official country residence now being used for a crucial round of Brexit discussions - for "substantive bilateral talks" covering a "range of foreign policy issues".

U.S. Ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson painted trade as a potential bright spot in the strong "special relationship" between Britain and the United States, which he said Trump meant to strengthen.

Asked whether Trump's schedule was created to keep him away from protests, a Downing Street spokesman said: 'Prime ministers frequently make use of Chequers for meetings with foreign leaders. It is one of the things that bind us together.

Donald Trump is steering clear of the mass protests in central London that will mark his first visit to Britain as president next week, instead holding meetings with dignitaries outside the capital at grand country residences and a castle.

Activists have promised to stage protests against Trump throughout his visit, with an event planned for London on Friday expected to be the biggest.

Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium that could turn contentious over the USA leader's insistence that allies pay more for their defence and amid trade disputes between Washington and Europe.

May will visit a defense site before traveling to Chequers, the prime minister's country house outside of London.


"For a United States president who retweets far-right Britain First propaganda, insults Londoners at times of tragedy, and refuses to condemn white supremacist marches at home, this insult is well deserved" said Labour MP David Lammy. As head of state, Her Majesty met with every U.S. President since 1952.

The itinerary would likely keep Trump who has been said to be sensitive to protests largely away from planned wide demonstrations in London.

"We're looking forward to making sure the President has a chance to see and experience the United Kingdom beyond London and the South-east", added the spokeswoman.

"Trade will be on the agenda", May's spokeswoman told a briefing.

The powwow between the two leaders, whose countries are the closest of allies, will come three days before Mr. Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

On Friday evening, the Trumps will travel to Scotland, where the President owns two golf properties, Trump Turnberry and Trump Aberdeen.

Smyth expressed doubts that the president would stop by for a pint but said he would "have a pint of stout ready for him in case".

The monumental 18th-century country house, built for the first Duke of Marlborough as a reward for his military victories, was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, a personal hero of the president.

Regarding the "Trump baby" balloon, the spokeswoman said it was up to the GLA to explain why they had approved it.
