Trump dodges London protests for tea with Queen Elizabeth

Trump's visit to the United Kingdom, the 12th US President to make such a tour, comes amid what he described as "turmoil" for the United Kingdom government, as Prime Minister May faces down rebellion from within her own party over her Brexit strategy.

Trump next heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with the queen, as protesters stage a mass demonstration in London. But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Mr. 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 Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to the USA leader's presence.

A high fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent. "I think they agree with me on immigration", Trump said.

Speaking to journalists today after playing golf at the Trump International Golf Links in Balmedie, Mr Trump Jnr said the "foolish proposal was now irrelevant".

Well, at least Melania Trump is spending her time in London - and maybe Donald Trump could take some learning from that.

On Thursday, Trump will travel to Blenheim Palace, the 18th-century stately home where Britain's World War Two leader Winston Churchill was born and spent most of his childhood.

"Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent", the embassy said in a list of advised actions, asking Americans to "keep a low profile" and "be aware of your surroundings".

Protests coinciding with Mr Trump's visit are set to take place in Glasgow this evening and in Edinburgh on Saturday.

This time , the Republicans have a simple majority in the Senate (51 votes needed), but in an election year anything can happen. Raymond Kethledge of MI , who also has many high-profile supporters who see him as a positive alternative to the other three.

However, the Scottish Government approved the plans with the UK Supreme Court eventually rejecting Mr Trump's legal challenge in 2015.

Ignoring all diplomatic niceties, the convention-shredding USA president set up the four-day visit with a rebuke of May as she battles to stop her government falling apart over Brexit.

"You see what's going on throughout the world with immigration.I think that's why Brexit happened", he said.

The president is not now scheduled to visit Aberdeenshire, but Eric Trump hinted that a trip to Menie could still be added to his father's itinerary at the last minute.

Britain "is in somewhat turmoil", Trump said before departing Washington, remarking that dealing with Putin might surprisingly be the easiest part of the European trip.

Blimp organizer Leo Murray said it had been created to speak to Trump "in a language that he understands, which is personal insults".

If it does fly, protesters hope Mr Trump will see the blimp "peeping over" from Downing Street.

Russia, Brexit and the Middle East are set to top the agenda.

On Friday, Trump will meet May and her newly appointed Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt at the prime minister's countryside retreat, Chequers.
