Trade and tea with queen for Trump in a Britain in 'turmoil'

TRUMP-QUEEN

Trump told The Sun newspaper on Thursday - in an interview that was published as he was feted by May at an opulent welcome dinner at a country palace - that he felt unwelcome in London because of protests, including a giant balloon that was being flown over Parliament on Friday depicting him as an angry diaper-wearing baby.

Labour Party foreign affairs spokeswoman Emily Thornberry told ITV's Good Morning Britain on Friday that it was "extraordinarily rude of Donald Trump to behave like this".

Trump has been getting around by helicopter to avoid the protests in central London. "I just want the people to be happy".

White House correspondents for Axios and the Toronto Star said The Sun had "over-egged" Mr Trump's comments apparently ruling out a US-UK trade deal. "The U.S. has always stood by our side as a beacon for tolerance, openness and respect", he said in a statement on Thursday.

The US president' four-day visit is expected to cost the taxpayers with a police and security bill of up over US$10 million, the Telegraph has reported.

"It's also about giving a boost to those in America resisting his policies", he said. Look at what is going on in London.

In Scotland, almost 8,000 people had signed a petition to be allowed to fly the giant Trump baby ballon over the Turnberry course where the US president is expected to play golf Saturday.

It was supposed to be a message of solidarity to the electorate but could just as easily be a message down the years to the prime minister herself today as she wakes to another miserable day in power but not in control. The issue was debated in Parliament, where the House speaker made clear that Trump would not be given the honor of speaking in Parliament.

A large balloon depicting the U.S. president as a giant infant will be allowed to fly over London during the president's four-day visit to the United Kingdom after the capital's Mayor Sadiq Khan gave his permission.

Hello magazine published a conversation with the fan named Fiona Moore about her interaction with Markle. Meghan Markle has proven herself to be a style icon in the making during her whirlwind tour of Dublin.

While Trump's trip was not the full state visit he was originally promised, he was heralded by military bands on his arrival in the country and at Blenheim, and he is scheduled on Friday to have tea with Queen Elizabeth.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London".

Trump fans have slammed the blimp, calling it offensive and blasting authorities for allowing it to fly.

Trump also blamed recent terrorist attacks there on Khan, who is Muslim. "I think they agree with me on immigration", Trump said. I haven't been there in a long time.

Khan told BBC Radio Friday, "The idea that you can blame (a rise in crime) on immigration from Africa is I think preposterous and we should call him out when he does so".

Prime Minister Theresa May said her plan to keep close economic ties with the European Union once Britain leaves the bloc next March was "principled and pragmatic".

The British government on Thursday published its long-awaited Brexit blueprint aimed at restarting stalled talks with the European Union, only for it to be panned by eurosceptics, the City of London and the United States president.

Trump and his wife, Melania, met British Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip for a formal dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday.
