Trump slams London mayor just before landing for United Kingdom visit

Hosted by the Queen, the President and First Lady of the United States were welcomed into the opulent Buckingham Palace ballroom. It said any official state visit should be axed "because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty, the Queen".

US President Donald Trump and his wife Melania with Britain's Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall at Clarence House, in London.

Trump will also make his first presidential visit to Ireland on Wednesday.

Accompanied by first lady Melania Trump, the president will arrive in the United Kingdom aboard Air Force One on Monday morning having already created a considerable degree of political turbulence with comments on the Tory leadership race, Brexit and the Duchess of Sussex.

The Museum of London says it wants the Donald Trump baby balloon as an exhibit.

USA president lashes out at London Mayor after he criticised the United Kingdom government for inviting Trump for a state visit.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan also won't be there, after labelling Trump's rhetoric akin to that of "the fascists of the 20th century". Both leaders gave short speeches before dinner began.

A spokesperson for Khan later told reporters: "He has more important things to do than respond to Donald Trump's ill-informed tweet that deliberately takes out of context his remarks urging Londoners not to be alarmed when they saw more police―including armed officers―on the streets".

Following the welcome, the national anthems of the United States and the UK were played, before the president and Prince Charles inspected a Guard of Honour formed by Nijmegen Company, Grenadier Guards.

He praised May's Brexit-supporting rival, former foreign minister Boris Johnson, saying he would be a "great" potential prime minister and also called for arch-Brexiteer Nigel Farage, a scourge of May's ruling Conservative Party, to conduct talks with the EU.

"He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me", Trump said on Twitter shortly before Air Force One landed at Stansted Airport near London.

He then went on to insult Khan's height, while spelling his name wrong. Anti-Trump activists have promised to organise protests across the country throughout his visit, with tens of thousands of demonstrators expected to gather in London alone.

But by Mr Trump's standards, his first few hours in London were relatively gaffe-free.

Trump hailed Queen Elizabeth II's seven decades of leadership in a personal tribute to the monarch who's hosting him in London this week ahead of events in England and France commemorating the 75th anniversary D-Day.

He has already waded far into Britain's turbulent domestic politics, where more than a dozen candidates are vying to replace May, who announced last month she was quitting after failing to get her European Union divorce deal through parliament.

With a 41-gun royal salute ringing out across the royal palace's lawn, Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles shook hands with the U.S. leader and First Lady Melania Trump before British soldiers played the national anthems of the two countries.

But the USA president arrived at a precarious moment, as he faces a fresh round of impeachment fervour back home and uncertainty on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean.

Talks between Mr Trump and outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May will begin on Tuesday, with the pair expected to discuss climate change and Chinese technology firm Huawei.

When and where is the London Trump protest happening? A giant balloon depicting the US leader as a diapered baby floated over Central London and onto newspaper front pages around the world.
