Both those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders, and Trump unilaterally trashed them.

However, the Scottish Government approved the plans with the UK Supreme Court eventually rejecting Mr Trump's legal challenge in 2015.

"However, let's not throw Trump Baby out with the bathwater - he'd be a welcome sight at any of the many protests happening across Scotland over the course of the visit".

May will seek to put the tensions behind her when she hosts Trump later Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of World War II prime minister Winston Churchill.

During a press conference in Brussels after the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Mr. Trump appeared to criticize Ms. Some of their signs read: "Dump Trump", "Lock Him Up", and "There Will Be Hell Toupee". Khan has been outspoken against Trump's Muslim policy in the United States. I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point.

"Everyone agreed to raise spending as they agreed in 2014, and everyone agreed to respect the [previous] commitments they made", French president Emmanuel Macron said.

Just before departing for Europe earlier this week, Trump ruffled feathers again by saying that the United Kingdom was in "turmoil", referring to the resignation of two prominent Cabinet ministers protesting Prime Minister May's Brexit policy.

He added: "I used to love London as a city -I haven't been there in a long time".

On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the US ambassador's residence where Trump was staying on the outskirts of London, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected on Friday.


In Scotland, almost 8,000 people had signed a petition to be allowed to fly the giant Trump baby ballon over the Turnberry course where the USA president is expected to play golf Saturday.

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.

In walks President Trump, to call out one of the claims that Number 10 has been making of late - in essence, smashing the vase to bits.

One woman who saw the President arrive said he had given a "short speech" which she described as "lovely".

A giant 20-foot balloon depicting an orange and angry baby Trump in a nappy will rise above Parliament Square Gardens tomorrow after London Mayor Sadiq Khan led Greater London Authority gave permission for it to fly.

Trump added that May's "soft" blueprint for the U.K.'s future dealings with the European Union would probably "kill" any future trade deals with the United States.

It has also complained that 300 officers working during the visit will have to sleep on camp beds in a gymnasium that has no hot water and restricted access to hot food.

A group of protesters has also gathered outside a fenced-off area in Regent's Park, close to the entrance of Winfield House, where Mr Trump is staying and is due to shortly leave for the dinner.

And in an apparent plea to the president to remember his allies when he meets Vladimir Putin on Monday, Mrs May noted that Britain and America work closely on security "whether through targeting Daesh terrorists or standing up to Russian aggression".
