Donald Trump casts doubts over Theresa May's Brexit stance

The fence cuts through Regent’s Park

Trump has done more damage to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in months than Russian Federation has in decades Trump takes credit for increased defense spending by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but says "it isn't almost enough" Trump questions how Russian Federation probe can "proceed" given Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's private comments MORE on Thursday downplayed expected protests during his visit to the United Kingdom, saying he believes its citizens "like me a lot".

Labour Party legislator Paul Flynn, who has criticized Mr. Trump in Parliament, says the US leader has outraged Britons - and people around the world - with his harsh treatment of immigrants.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Mr Ruddy said: 'Trump will think the baby balloon is about him so it's probably a positive thing. "They like me a lot in the United Kingdom".

"So that was the full planning that went into it - 10 pints of stout and, you know, late-night conversation."

Mr Gifford, who has always supported the development, wants the Trump Organisation to bring forward what they had initially promised. In a statement, the group said it was a "victory that Donald Trump does not appear to have any official engagements in London".

"He's come out of the woodwork now and I've seen it the last few days; there's huge positivity for what we've done here".

He said the stunt aims to "hold up a mirror" to Mr Trump's "toddler-like politics".

The reason: demonstrations are planned against President Donald Trump, in London, as well as Windsor, Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge, Cardiff, Glasgow and the west coast of Scotland, where Trump has a golf course.

Gardner, who works with refugees as part of her doctoral research at the London School of Economics, said Trump's speeches about refugees and immigrants are "a very unsafe line of rhetoric to be normalized". Thousands of protesters were expected to gather outside the luxurious residence later Thursday.

On Wednesday, the Guardian newspaper reported "the United Kingdom police mobilisation for Trump's visit would be the largest since the 2011 English riots", when London was shocked by five days of violence and unrest, with wild scenes of looting and arson, met by mass deployment of 10,000 police.

"And if he's having a cup of tea I'll have a pint of stout".

Prime Minister May has abundant reasons to seek a close relationship with Trump - not least, the United States will be an even more vital trade partner once Britain leaves the European Union next year - but it is an uneasy embrace, given her opposition to many of his key policies.

Later, Mr and Mrs Trump will attend a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Place - the birthplace of Winston Churchill - in Oxfordshire, hosted by Theresa May.

We're more than used to our best sports-stars and celebrities being picked up as "British" in the English media when they're on the rise, and "Irish" when they're underperforming or in trouble.
