Is this what the US President really thinks of London?

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.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan approved the blimp earlier this week, ahead of Trump's visit to the city.

The tweet sparked a response from everyone including Theresa May and then Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt, who retweeted Trump's quote with the comment: 'I may disagree with claims made on that march but not ONE of them wants to live in a system where 28 million people have no cover.

Allan Hogarth, head of policy at Amnesty International U.K., said Trump's visit is a major "opportunity for the U.K.to show that peaceful protest is an essential component of a free and fair society, not something to be shut down as a political embarrassment".

The divisive American leader, arriving after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, will be largely away from London during a tour expected to bring at least tens of thousands of people onto British streets.

After spending the night at the United States ambassador's official residence in Regent's Park, London, Mr Trump will join the PM at a military base on Friday to observe a joint counter-terrorism exercise involving UK and USA special forces.

Just earlier this week the American leader suggested the United Kingdom was in "turmoil" but this is just one of many opinions he has taken upon himself to give on life this side of the pond.

But his agenda reveals that he will largely avoid London - where tens of thousands plan to protest against him and a 20-foot balloon that depicts him as an angry orange baby will fly over the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan challenged Mr Khan over the decision, suggesting the mayor had approved of the blimp due to personal animosity towards the US President, the Daily Mail reports.

After spending the night at the USA ambassador's official residence in Regent's Park, London, the United States president will join the Theresa May at a military base on Friday to view a joint counter-terrorism exercise involving UK and U.S. special forces.

"For a USA president who retweets far-right Britain First propaganda, insults Londoners at times of tragedy, and refuses to condemn white supremacist marches at home, this insult is well deserved" said Labour MP David Lammy.

Mr and Mrs Trump will also join the Queen for tea at the Castle.

"We in this country, and I hope I do not regret saying this, are very good at this sort of thing".

Britain "is in somewhat turmoil", Trump said before departing Washington, remarking that dealing with Putin might surprisingly be the easiest part of the European trip.

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence.

The pair will discuss relations with Russia, Brexit and trade ties, Downing Street officials said, after Trump recently slapped tariffs on European Union steel and aluminum imports.
