Donald Trump visit to United Kingdom 'in turmoil' inspires baby blimp protest

Share

President Donald Trump is all in for Winston Churchill during his first visit to the United Kingdom as president, paying his respects to an icon of American conservatives who coined the phrase the "special relationship".

The declaration was unusual given the topic being discussed was whether the President would support a Hard Brexit for the UK.

On Friday, as Melania Trump will accompany Philip May, UK PM Theresa May's husband, in visiting schoolchildren and veterans, Donald Trump will once again head outside the city to attend a military demonstration with his UK counterpart.

The clip, which can be seen below, is predictably rambling.

In a press conference this morning, Trump said he is "fine" with the mass protests planned in the country and that Britons like him "a lot". "I don't know (if) that is what they voted for", he added.

'The Scottish Government has been planning for this for some time with key partners, including Police Scotland, and we will continue to work with them as required on the final preparations.

After a weekend break in Scotland, they are expected to move on to Finland for Trump's much-hyped summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16.

The largest demonstration is expected in central London on Friday where a giant "Trump baby" balloon will fly close to Parliament after being given the go-ahead by London mayor Sadiq Khan.

While Trump on Friday is having lunch with Prime Minister Theresa May at her Chequers country estate or sipping tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, tens of thousands of demonstrators - maybe more - are planning to gather in London's Trafalgar Square to protest the president and his policies.

The groups sent Palin to Alabama past year to support Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore. Grassley noted that Democrats were saying this before the announcement was even made.

Matthew Butcher, an anti-Trump campaigner and one of the "babysitters" of the balloon, said: "I think that the thing that the Trump balloon does is that it brings an element of fun to the protests, but it also gets under Donald Trump's very thin skin".

"Melania has seen photos of the Trump baby blimp, and she doesn't find it amusing in the slightest, she thinks it's mortifying", a source close to the first lady tells HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY.

But besides that, the U.S. president is set to avoid much of the mass protests as most of his official engagements have been planned outside London.

Ahead of Trump's arrival, the USA embassy advised U.S. citizens in London to "keep a low profile" during Trump's visit.

"However, let's not throw Trump Baby out with the bathwater - he'd be a welcome sight at any of the many protests happening across Scotland over the course of the visit".

According to his itinerary at this point, his only formal event in London - where his unpopularity is high - is a closed press meet and greet at the US embassy on Thursday.

The President of the United States of America visits the UK this week, and if he was any other leader it would be a simple exercise in global politics.
