‘I think they like me a lot in the UK’

U.S. President Donald Trump's first official visit to the U.K.is off to a contentious start with the President challenging Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit strategy and highlighting her political troubles. These will focus on relations with Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.

"The people voted to break it up, so I imagine that's what they'll do". I think they agree with me on immigration.

The President and First Lady Melania Trump landed at London Stansted Airport, northeast of the capital, where they boarded a helicopter to Winfield House.

Liberal Democrat former deputy prime minister Sir Nick Clegg said the U.S. leader had "every right" to come to the United Kingdom but added that he would be attending an anti-Trump demonstration.

But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from London's Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to Trump's presence.

A YouGov poll released on Wednesday found that 77 percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of Trump and just 50 percent thought his visit should have gone ahead.

President Trump is said to have given a "positive" and "complimentary" speech about England as he addressed US Embassy workers within hours of his arrival in the UK.

The poll conducted this week said 63% found Trump racist, and 74% said he was sexist.

The request for the orange-hued blimp to fly was approved by London Mayor Sadiq Khan - who has had a testy Twitter relationship with Trump - after more than 10,000 people signed a petition.

Brett Kavanaugh Will Right the Course of the Supreme Court
Some conservative critics faulted Kavanaugh for not taking up the merits of the dispute and declaring the ACA unconstitutional. The Detroit News , the largest paper in MI with an editorial board , wrote that " Kavanaugh's record defies challenge".

In fact, security concerns mean the US President has two of the stretched, armour-plated vehicles in Britain so would-be attackers don't know which one he is in.

The tight security surrounding the visit will attempt to avoid exposing Trump to planned protests in central London.

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the U.S. and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", May said ahead of the visit.

But Brexit champion Nigel Farage predicted there would be a "real clash" on Brexit.

A working visit means that Trump will not be hosted by the queen and will not stay at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle.

U.S. President Donald Trump checks time prior to a dinner at the Art and History Museum at the Parc du Cinquantenaire during the NATO Summit in Brussels, Belgium July 11, 2018.

But as President Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday, he will find plenty of people who think it is more important to oppose him than it is to nurture USA -U.K. ties.

Sarah Elliott, chairwoman of Republicans Overseas UK, told CNN she did not think Trump would be fazed by the stunt.

Two senior cabinet ministers, including former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, resigned this week over the plan, saying it keeps the country too aligned to the European Union and does not respect the wishes of the people who voted to leave the EU in the 2016 referendum.
