Ignoring all diplomatic niceties, the convention-shredding United States president set up the four-day visit with a rebuke of his beleaguered host as she battles to stop her government falling apart over Brexit.

He said: "It's fine".

The organisers behind the blimp however, said they were just "poking fun" and "hope Trump sees it".

"The people voted to break it up, so I imagine that's what they'll do".

But, he added: "Whether he sees it, whether he reacts to it, we don't really care".

"Our trade and investment relationship is unrivaled - we are the largest investors in each other's economies and every day a million British people go to work for US companies in the United Kingdom and a million Americans go to work for United Kingdom companies in the US", May said.

In fact, security concerns mean the US President has two of the stretched, armour-plated vehicles in Britain so would-be attackers don't know which one he is in.

"The trip, which will include tea with the Queen and a private weekend in Scotland, is set to be greeted by a mass demonstration in London on Friday".

"It appears that President Trump got the message from the many Londoners who love and admire America and Americans but find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance", mayor Khan said in January.

Protests have been held in Wales over the visit of US President Donald Trump.

"Now more than ever we have a responsibility to stand up for our values and ensure our voice is heard around the world", he wrote in London's Evening Standard newspaper.

Trump has always been a supporter of Brexit and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after it leaves the European Union, something heralded by Brexit supporters as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

'There has been some spectacular reactions, especially from Nigel Farage.

"I partially won an election because of immigration", he said, also pointing to Italy's recent vote, in which Giuseppe Conte took government after campaigning on a populist anti-immigration platform.

Speaking in Brussels as he wrapped up a contentious North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump shrugged off concerns over demonstrations, saying he had "great friendships" in Britain, where his mother was born.

Russian Federation has strongly denied the charge.

Trump's trip is part of a working visit and not a state visit, an invitation to which was extended to him personally by May just days after his inauguration.

It will fly in Parliament Square between 9.30am and 11.30am tomorrow morning, before following Trump up to Scotland as the President continues his tour.

"UK and United States 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 U.S. counterparts", a statement from Downing Street read.

Donald Trump is due to arrive in London on Thursday and will meet the Prime Minister and the Queen.

Nick Hurd, Britain's Policing Minister, told parliament police expected more than 100 protests across the country, including two large demonstrations in London on Friday, and there were robust and proportionate plans in place.
