The decision to approve the flying of a giant blimp depicting Donald Trump as an angry, orange baby near Parliament has been defended by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

'Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent, ' it said.

Police are planning to face 100,000 protesters in London during President Trump's four-day visit to Britain.

The couple will attend a gala dinner at Blenheim Palace out in the countryside on Thursday evening.

There are also plans for protestors to gather close to the U.S. ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, where Trump and his wife, Melania, will stay overnight on Thursday.

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence which will focus on Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and Middle East.

Tens of thousands are expected to protest against the president in London on Thursday and Friday and in Glasgow on Saturday.

Workmen construct fences, before the US presidential visit at the end of the week, around the USA ambassador's residence in Regent's Park in London, Britain, July 10, 2018.

Mr Smyth, who is originally from Ireland, said Trump fans had been given a bad rap, and there had been lots of support for the pub's temporary renaming.

In June, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis wrote to his British counterpart Gavin Williamson warning that if the United Kingdom wants "to remain the USA partner of choice", it should spend more on defense and noted that France is increasing military spending.

It is not simply the protesters, who are expected to dog Trump throughout his visit, including his weekend in Scotland, but his fraught relationship with political leaders accustomed to harmonious exchanges with US leaders, a tradition of unity that goes back at least to the vital World War II partnership of Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill.

The Jameson in Hammersmith has rebranded itself The Trump Arms for the US President's visit.

Up to 50,000 people are expected to descend on the capital, with around 10,000 cops on the ground.

Mr Trump raised eyebrows when he went out of his way to praise Boris Johnson after he resigned as foreign secretary, while insisting it was up to the British people whether Mrs May remained in office or not.

Prime Minister May has abundant reasons to seek a close relationship with Trump - not least, the United States will be an even more vital trade partner once Britain leaves the European Union next year - but it is an uneasy embrace, given her opposition to many of his key policies.

As well as meeting the Queen at Windsor, also on Mr Trump's schedule is a journey to Scotland where he owns two golf courses and will spend the weekend.
