Donald Trump UK visit day 1: Queen & Prince Harry host private lunch

'Stone cold loser': Trump lets fly at London Mayor as he touches down in UK

"My greatest hope is this: the president and all the leaders stay focused on the extraordinary heroism of that of D-Day and focusing on what brought allies to that position", said Heather Conley, senior vice president of the Centre for Strategic and International Studies. For most presidents, it would be a time to revel in the grandeur, building relations with heads of state and collecting photo-ops for campaign ads and presidential libraries.

Queen Elizabeth II gifted President Trump an abridged first edition of Winston Churchill's book on World War II during the commander-in-chief's visit to England.

On landing, Trump sent out a tweet calling London Mayor Sadiq Khan a "stone cold loser" after the mayor criticised the British government's decision to offer a state visit to the U.S. president.

Responding to Trump's latest criticism of the London mayor, Khan's spokesman said: "This is much more serious than childish insults which should be beneath the President of the United States". Trump will deliver his own remarks, and other British royalty, including Prince Charles and his wife Camilla, will attend as well.

President Donald Trump has some fans in the United Kingdom as a group of supporters cheered him on outside of Buckingham Palace.

There is a fresh round of impeachment fervor back home and uncertainty on this side of the Atlantic.

The second day of Trump's trip will focus on politics, including a breakfast with business leaders, talks with May in 10 Downing Street, a news conference and a dinner at the US ambassador's residence.

In his toast, Trump reaffirmed the close ties between London and Washington - noting the countries' joint effort in defeating Nazi Germany during World War II.

The US President added that Mr Khan should instead be focussed on crime in London, and reminded him of the "very dumb and incompetent" Mayor of New York, Bill de Blasio, who has "also done a bad job".

Federer, Nadal reach French Open quarters
The unseeded Czech, ranked 38th, overcame a tame effort from Latvian 12th seed Sevastova, winning 6-2, 6-0 in only 59 minutes. Ruud, 20, is coached by his father Christian, who was in the draw here 20 years ago when Federer made his Grand Slam debut.

He held his salute as he walked through 20 members of the guard that greeted him and was quickly escorted to Marine One, the presidential helicopter. I think it'll be very important. "I like him. I have always liked him".

"On behalf of all Americans, I offer a toast to the eternal friendship of our people, the vitality of our nations, and to the long-cherished and truly remarkable reign of Her Majesty, the Queen", he said.

It was not clear if the Trump endorsement would hurt or help Johnson's chances of becoming Britain's next leader. The projection stated that Trump has an approval rating of 21% in the United Kingdom and Obama has an approval rating of 72%. They will also talk about Britain's withdrawal from the European Union, which Trump is known to support.

Trump also angered pro-EU camp as he said Brexit party leader Nigel Farage should be holding the Brexit negotiations with the EU.

The Trumps then visited Westminster Abbey, where they laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Warrior.

"Bottom line is this: do we want the lasting images from this historic occasion to be of a pathetic orange baby balloon flying over our Parliament, or of a US President standing shoulder to shoulder with the Queen to pay tribute to the D-Day heroes?" He declared there was "great love all around" but the Fake News would try to find protests.

In an interview with The Sun, Trump weighed in on the American-born Duchess of Sussex.

Trump attempted to clarify that he would not let Khan dampen his trip and said he looks forward to his visit. He is publicly backing former Foreign Minister Boris Johnson as leader of the Conservative Party to succeed Prime Minister Theresa May, who is resigning June 7th, just two days after Trump leaves Britain, after failing to negotiate a Brexit deal that parliament could ratify.
