US President Donald Trump arrives in United Kingdom for four-day visit

12 July 2018

When asked about Trump's remarks, May said in Brussels: "What we are doing is delivering on the vote of the British people. that's what our proposal does".

And if the President makes an impromptu appearance at the Trump Arms?

He said the stunt aims to "hold up a mirror" to Mr Trump's "toddler-like politics". The proposal was debated in parliament where Trump was heavily criticized. "You need to be a part of saying no to some of these people. It's not for me to decide what's in good taste or bad taste".

May has had to defend Trump's visit in the face of fiery criticism from opposition lawmakers. Her counterpart Philip May will join her on this engagement.

Ian Blackford, the Scottish National Party's leader in the Westminster parliament, said he regretted that May's government would roll out the red carpet for Trump.

She says they have "turned a blind eye" to the situation.

In June, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis wrote to his British counterpart Gavin Williamson warning that if the United Kingdom wants "to remain the US partner of choice", it should spend more on defense and noted that France is increasing military spending. "They trust us with stuff on intelligence", he said. The issue is 'Do they have freedom to protest, freedom to assemble and should they be allowed to do so? During Trump's address at Central Intelligence Agency headquarters, on his first full day as commander in chief, Trump noted that Churchill "doesn't come from our country but had a lot to do with it". The future of its ties is uncertain, muddied by confusion over Brexit. I'm certainly going to Turnberry and I'll see him there.

Mr Trump is expected to avoid central London, where the bulk of protests will take place, instead visiting Blenheim Palace, Chequers, and Windsor Castle during his trip on Thursday and Friday.

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". "I think that's why Brexit happened".

After London, he will travel to Scotland and then onto Helsinki to meet with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

May reached out to him just days after Mr. Trump was inaugurated, extending the invitation for a coveted state visit that would be hosted by Queen Elizabeth II, but that gesture has proved far more controversial than expected as Mr. Trump has shown little interest in maintaining "diplomacy as usual" with European allies.
