Trump visit: Lock him in the tower, chants army of protesters

President Donald Trump said the US would "probably not" strike a trade deal with Britain if Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit plan went ahead as planned. "The idea that we would park our rights and privileges and freedoms because it may cause offence to a USA president, I think people in London and the United Kingdom would find objectionable as indeed would Americans", he said.

Before heading for Scotland, the president and Queen Elizabeth II became acquainted over tea at Windsor Castle.

Tens of thousands of protesters lined the streets of London, Manchester, Glasgow and Bristol to protest the visit of the American president but it is thought there will be more as he jets north.

Activists kicked off the demonstrations on Friday by floating a six-metre-high (20-ft) blimp outside parliament depicting the USA president as a snarling orange baby. With the U.K.'s departure from the European Union set to take place in eight months, the nation's forwarding community is giving the plan mixed reviews. The president and the first lady will depart on Sunday. It was during that trip to Washington that she invited him to the UK.

Their meeting lasted almost an hour and was the final engagement in Mr Trump's two-day working visit to the UK.

Trump, a long-time supporter of Brexit, told The Sun he had advised May on her strategy to leave the European Union but was ignored.

"I would much rather have her as my friend than my enemy, that I can tell you", he told reporters during a news conference with Ms. "We've got some guys that really, really love golf, and they're really invested in our programs", Dodson quoted Eric Trump as saying, according to Fortune. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me ..."

The US Open Final: Who Will Make it?
The 34-year-old Swiss won the first two sets 6-4 and 7-5, forcing an injured and struggling Djokovic to retire in the third. If she’s at her best, then she’ll make it to the final and if she performs on the day the title will be hers.

Earlier, Mr Trump said he and Mrs May had spoken for an hour-and-a-half at the black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, which he attended with his wife Melania.

Trump said the interview published by the Sun omitted his praise of May, and that his staff had taped the interview: "It's called fake news and we solve a lot of problems with the good old recording instrument".

"It is terrible to hear the inflammatory language that he uses and I am embarrassed that (Prime Minister) Theresa May has done so much to welcome him".

Meanwhile, Mrs Trump played bowls with the PM's husband, Philip May, at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in London. She met Chelsea Pensioners and local children.

But over on social media, it's also triggered a new meme, which involves a certain current British prime minister - who has been pictured looking positively smitten with her new guest.

Speaking to the Sun, Trump revealed that he'd been warned about the Trump baby blimp that would be flying above Parliament Square, saying: "I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London".

Prime Minister May said they had discussed plans for an "ambitious" trade agreement.
