Donald Trump and Melania touch down in London

While tens of thousands of Brits are set to protest Donald Trump's visit on Thursday, one pub in west London will be welcoming him with open arms.

Britain "is in somewhat turmoil", Trump said before departing Washington, remarking that dealing with Putin might surprisingly be the easiest part of the European trip.

He claims that Brexit voters may not get "what they voted for".

Mr Trump said earlier this week that the United Kingdom was in "turmoil", following the resignation of cabinet ministers David Davis and Boris Johnson.

"With a lot of resignations", Trump told a news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Asked about Trump's comments at a hastily-arranged meeting with journalists, May said she was delivering wishes of the British people.

Supporters of Brexit say such a trade deal with the world's biggest economy would be one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

May is trying to unify her deeply divided Conservative Party behind her Brexit plans with some of her own lawmakers openly speaking of a leadership challenge.

President Donald Trump has said British Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed Brexit plan will "probably kill" off any chance of a UK-US trade deal.

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership". Trump is technically on a lower-level working visit this week. Around 50 percent think the visit should go ahead, compared with 37 percent who think the visit should be canceled. Britons, he said, "like me a lot", the BBC reported.

Another man, who did not wish to give his name, said: "It was very complimentary to England and to the allies that we have, very positive".

Anti-Trump protesters with critical signs were lining the roadway leading to the palace near Oxford.

The largest demonstration is expected in central London on Friday where a giant "Trump baby" balloon will fly close to Parliament after being given the go-ahead by London mayor Sadiq Khan.

The embassy also warned Americans, however, to "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

Mr Sprinks, who goes by the stage name Sprinkles, added: "Our vocalist, Freak, had a bit of a thing about Trump".

British pageantry was on grand display Thursday as President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived on the historic grounds of Blenheim Palace for an exclusive black tie gala hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May.

The leaders will then hold talks at the PM's residence of Chequers.

The declaration was odd given the topic being discussed was whether the President would support a Hard Brexit for the UK. The Queen and the President will inspect the Guard of Honour and watch the military march past before having tea together at the castle.
