Last month, Labour member of Parliament Gavin Shuker ran down a list of objections to Trump: the separation of migrant families and detention of children; the USA departure from the United Nations' Human Rights Council; the US president's praise for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump, though, will likely be gone from London before the demonstrations start Friday. A police security operation is taking place.

GETTYMr Trump's first formal visit to Britain as US President. He went on to explain that he thinks the U.K.is now in "turmoil". "I'm not sure that's what they voted for", Trump said on Thursday. "If a balloon flying over London makes people laugh, I think that's absolutely worth it", she says. "He's also racist demagogue who is a danger to women, immigrants and minorities and a mortal threat to world peace and the very future of life on earth".

He added that former foreign secretary Boris Johnson would make a "great prime minister", saying "I think he's got what it takes".

"I think I probably can", he said. "I'm not sure that's what they voted for".

May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump at the stately home that will be attended by senior ministers and about 100 business leaders, including the likes of Blackstone group, Blackrock, Diageo, McLaren and Arup.

"UK and USA special forces will be involved in a demonstration which will involve a counter-terrorism scenario and an outdoor capabilities demonstration showing equipment that the [British] special forces use when they conduct joint operations with their United States counterparts", a statement from Downing Street read.

The president and first lady will then head to Windsor Castle to meet the Queen before leaving for Scotland in the evening.

He has clashed in the past with May - even though she is a fellow conservative who shares his view that defense spending should be hiked - and with her predecessor, David Cameron, who challenged Mr. Trump's anti-Muslim campaign stance as "divisive, stupid and wrong". But on Thursday they said they welcomed the plan and would study it closely. "Is it any wonder that forces struggle to fill their requirements?" the Guardian reported.

More than 60,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

Trump confidant Chris Ruddy believes the President, who is due to fly into the United Kingdom today, will not react how people think he will to the balloon.

Despite tensions in the last week, which appeared to be on display at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation when it looked like Mrs May had declined to shake the President's hand, the UK Government rolled out the red carpet for Mr Trump.

Hoodoo Zephyr penned lyrics to the Scottish tune mocking Donald Trump's personal life and politics. The horrific scenes at the Mexican border are a repudiation of decent human values. "We can not roll out the red carpet for a United States president that treats human beings this way", the statement noted.

From the moment of his election, Donald Trump was an awkward friend for Theresa May.
