LONDON ― President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump touch down in London on Thursday for a working visit, and while his meeting schedule will keep him nearly exclusively outside of the capital, she will be spending some time in town.

Supporters of Donald Trump say a protest baby blimp set to fly over London is disrespectful to the President - but one thinks he will actually find it "funny".

On Friday, Trump will meet up again with May for a visit to an undisclosed military site before traveling to Chequers, her country estate, for talks on a range of issues. He also joked that Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations" and he has mused about meeting Mr. Johnson.

Asked about Trump's comments, May said: "We're delivering on the vote of the British people to take back control of our money, our laws and our borders".

However, the force said there were a number of "possible alternative" locations in Scotland where the blimp could be based, raising the prospect of it flying above one of several planned protests.

34-year-old Eric flew into Aberdeen Airport on a Trump plane earlier today, with his father flying into the United Kingdom around lunchtime ahead of a meeting with the Prime Minister and the Queen.

"But from the public, the welcome will be far from warm", he added saying there would be protests across the country against Trump's "abysmal record on human rights, his repugnant attitude towards women and his disgusting treatment of minorities".

Trump has clashed in the past with May - even though she is a conservative who shares his view that defense spending should be raised - and with her predecessor, David Cameron, who challenged Trump's anti-Muslim campaign stance as "divisive, stupid and wrong".

Maisie Williams accused of giving away Game of Thrones spoilers
Maisie went on to explain how she has never found Game of Thrones misogynistic, despite many criticising it for just that. Every Westeros-bound actor must be stepping on eggshells when it comes to Game of Thrones season 8 .

Among the crowd of protesters outside American man Martin Williams, who works at Oxford University, called Mr Trump a dictator.

A YouGov poll released on Wednesday found that 77 percent of respondents had an unfavorable opinion of Trump and just 50 percent thought his visit should have gone ahead.

Protesters gathered outside the United States ambassador's residence in London, where the Trumps are staying tonight, and near Blenheim Palace.

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.

President Donald Trump and his wife, Melania, are being greeted with pomp and circumstance, along with protesters, as he arrives at spectacular Blenheim Palace for a gala dinner.

The declaration was unusual given the topic being discussed was whether the President would support a Hard Brexit for the UK.

On Friday, May and Trump will hold talks on Brexit, relations with Russian Federation, and trade ties at the prime minister's Chequers country residence, followed by a press conference. 'The people voted to break it up so I would imagine that's what they would do, but maybe they're taking a different route - I don't know if that is what they voted for'.

On Friday, Trump will meet with the prime minister and the Queen and then spend the weekend at one of his private golf courses in Scotland.
