Trump meets with Farage during London trip

The launch marked what is expected to be a day of protests across the country.

Their talks were accompanied by noisy protests from thousands of anti-Trump activists.

Police will close the road directly outside Downing Street to protect the president and his family.

But nearby, the "Carnival of Resistance" was in full swing.

The president returned to Winfield House after attending a breakfast roundtable with British Prime Minister Theresa May and business leaders. "I said: 'Where are the protests?"

He added: "I didn't see the protesters until just a little while ago. So it was fake news".

"As for ordinary people's reaction to the Trump visit to Britain, the vast majority don't care one way or another", Garrie said, commenting on the matter.

At the morning business summit, Trump said he's optimistic about reaching a bilateral trade agreement with the United Kingdom.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, who has ambitions of being Prime Minister within months, led the protests and delivered a speech in Parliament Square.

What is certainly not on his agenda is a meeting with London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who wrote in The Observer newspaper that welcoming Trump for a state visit is "un-British."He cited Trump's sharing of tweets from a "British far-right racist group", the president's rejection of scientific evidence of climate change, and Trump "trying to interfere shamelessly" in the race to replace May". Corbyn said he was "proud that our city has a Muslim mayor".

Also at the dinner were Trump's four adult children - Donald Trump Jr.; Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner; Eric Trump and his wife, Lara; and Tiffany Trump. "Not on my watch", one of the leadership hopefuls, Health Secretary Matt Hancock, said on Twitter. "We will not stand for that".

A six-metre high blimp depicting Trump as a baby made its return outside Parliament in London. Britain has yet to make a decision on Huawei and officials said a review is under way. It just seemed to happen - and then happen again, and again.

"I still believe -I personally believe- that it is in the best interest of the U.K.to leave the European Union with a deal".

The great British tradition of creating witty - and sometimes rude - placards was on full display.

Noah pointed out the uselessness of gifting a book to this particular president.

Trump will also be given a tour of the underground bunker where Winston Churchill led the country during World War II. Elsewhere, a man sold toilet rolls featuring Trump's face for three pounds a piece.

But the highlight of the day was the white-tie-and-tiaras state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

There were occasional scuffles as some of the protesters confronted small pockets of Trump supporters. The palace is reportedly undergoing renovations. "I don't think it matters whether there are thousands or hundred of thousands".

"It was a very, very small group of people", he said. "In many cases, state visits of foreign dignitaries are all smiles and grins in public with a lot of intense disagreement behind closed doors".

Some wondered whether the protests would have any effect.

"I really don't like critics as much as I like and respect people who get things done", he said. Think how well they would do if they did. "In the States, you're either for him or against him". "They want to have independence in a sense". "It's an opportunity to show our support for the forces who are against him".
