Trump dodges London protests for tea with Queen Elizabeth

Trump is also arriving following a chaotic North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

People wait to see the arrival of US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Winfield House in London on July 12, 2018.

Donald Trump says Ireland likes him a lot and agrees with his views on immigration in a clip released from the President's post-Nato summit in Brussels by CNN.

Mr. Trump may have ruffled feathers again when he said just before departing for Europe that the United Kingdom was in "turmoil", suggesting it was "up to the people" to decide if Prime Minister Theresa May remains in power after a few days that saw her authority challenged by the resignation of two prominent Cabinet ministers protesting her Brexit policy.

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.

Although he will visit the USA ambassador's residence, he is largely avoiding central London, where the largest protests are expected Friday.

A high fence has been erected around the US 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.

While Mr Johnson may now be a backbencher, Mr Trump said he hoped he would still see the former foreign minister - another blow to the fragile position of Mrs May.

Huge protests are planned in the UK's capital city during Trump's visit when he arrives with first lady Melania Trump on Thursday.

Tens of thousands of people are expected to protest against Trump's visit in central London on Friday, citing his alleged Islamophobia, controversial policies and "incendiary rhetoric" towards people with disabilities and the LGBTQ community. He added: "I think that's why Brexit happened".

"I think it's fine", he said.

Donald Trump, 72, is about to visit the United Kingdom for the first time since being elected president in November 2016, and the British people aren't prepared to give him a warm welcome. "Obviously demonstrations are one of the most visible ones, but there's also the potential opportuning and exploitation of the visit by those with more nefarious intentions".

In a statement, the group said it was a "victory that Donald Trump does not appear to have any official engagements in London".

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. Trump will then meet the Queen at Windsor Castle.

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

Trump and his entourage will then travel to his golf course in Scotland, where he'll stay until heading to Helsinki for his Monday summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
