Trump visit brings biggest police operation since United Kingdom riots

London pub renames itself The Trump Arms ahead of presidential visit

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who signed off on the so-called "baby Trump" blimp, defended the decision Thursday, arguing the protests were not anti-American but emblematic of free speech.

In the busy south London neighborhood of Brixton, Victor Greetham, who runs a jazz bar, said he hasn't been to a demonstration since he protested against the Iraq War in 2003, but he planned to attend one of the protests against Trump's visit.

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence which will focus on Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and Middle East.

On Wednesday, the Guardian newspaper reported "the United Kingdom police mobilisation for Trump's visit would be the largest since the 2011 English riots", when London was shocked by five days of violence and unrest, with wild scenes of looting and arson, met by mass deployment of 10,000 police.

Police said the blimp would not be allowed at the course as an air exclusion zone was in place during the president's visit.

A Trump Baby Blimp is set to take to the skies over London during the U.S. president's visit.

"The president of the United States of America will regretfully have the red carpet rolled out for him by this Conservative government", Ian Blackford, the Scottish National Party's leader in the Westminster parliament, told lawmakers on Wednesday.

Instead, only Mr Mundell will be on the tarmac to welcome the president and his wife, Melania, to Scotland before they are driven the 23 miles to his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire.

Mr Mundell said he is looking forward to welcoming the president.

Mr Trump arrived just under an hour later than planned after he insisted Britons "like me a lot" and "agree with me on immigration" in an impromptu press conference before leaving Brussels. "You see what " s going on throughout the world with immigration.

On Friday he'll meet Theresa May at the prime minister's country house, Chequers - and he'll meet the Queen at Windsor Castle while protests take place in London.

Along with trade and security links, 10 Downing Street said the other key areas to be discussed between Prime Minister May and President Trump included Brexit and the Middle East.

He added: "I've been reading a lot about Brexit over the last couple of days, and it seems to be turning a little bit differently, where they're getting at least partially involved back with the European Union", Mr Trump said.

Nicola Sturgeon made it clear that she would be prepared to meet Mr Trump but no...
