Trump touches down in United Kingdom on first official visit as president

UK-Trump-Baby

"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.

The president's visit comes after his participation in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium. 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".

He went on to say: "There might be protests, but I believe that the people in the UK, Scotland, Ireland, I think those people, they like me a lot".

"I think that's why Brexit happened", he said, noting that Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations".

But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from London's Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to Trump's presence.

The 6m high balloon shows Mr Trump as a giant baby in a nappy with his trademark blonde hair.

A coalition known as Together Against Trump has been the chief organizer of the opposition effort.

Trump will travel by helicopter once there, making it unlikely he'll see protests firsthand.

Divers free more cave boys on Day 2 of rescue mission
The boys, who were guided through the cave's twisting passages on Sunday, were said to be happy and undergoing medical checks. John Tangkitcharoenthawon, a local village chairman, was bursting with happiness over the successful rescue.

He arrives about a year and a half after Prime Minister Theresa May invited him for a state visit, an invitation that was met intense opposition in the United Kingdom - nearly 2 million people signed a petition to rescind the invite. She's planning to attend anti-Trump protests.

"The pictures of children being held in what appear to be cages are deeply disturbing", May stated to the House of Commons.

Trump - on his first visit to the country after taking office - will attend a black-tie dinner hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May and have tea with Queen Elizabeth at the Windsor Castle before flying off to one of his golf clubs in Scotland. After arriving in Great Britain Thursday evening, Trump and the first lady will dine with May and her husband at Blenheim Palace. On Friday, the two leaders will participate in a bilateral meeting and joint press conference.

"I would be happy to see Hillary Clinton if she was president visit the UK".

"When we leave the European Union we will begin to chart a new course for Britain in the world and our global alliances will be stronger than ever", May said ahead of Trump's visit.

Permission for the float was issued by London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has exchanged back-and-forth criticism with Trump.

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