  • Thousands of protestors are set to line the streets during Trump’s visit More

Ignoring all diplomatic niceties, the convention-shredding USA president set up the four-day visit with a rebuke of his beleaguered host as she battles to stop her government falling apart over Brexit.

"People are protesting the visit of President Trump, demonstrating their opposition to his bigotry and racism - comparing migrants to poisonous snakes, Mexicans to murderers and rapists - and state-sanctioned child abuse, and that is their right to do so", Carden said, addressing Nick Hurd, Britain's minister of state for policing and fire services. "Who would think? But the United Kingdom certainly - they certainly have a lot of things going on".

He added: "I've been reading a lot about Brexit over the last couple of days, and it seems to be turning a little bit differently, where they're getting at least partially involved back with the European Union", Mr Trump said. He also joked that Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations" and he has mused about meeting Mr. Johnson.

A US V22 Osprey military aircraft returns to Winfield House, the London residence of United States ambassador Woody Johnson, shortly after Marine One left with Trump and the First Lady Melania Trump to take them to Blenheim Palace.

"The people voted to break it up [Britain's ties with the EU]", Trump said.

"It's an easy target, those people who are visibly different", they said.

Stormy Daniels arrested in 'political motivated act'
Earlier this week, Daniels performed in Washington minutes before President Donald Trump announced his Supreme Court nomination. In 2016, Daniels sued Trump claiming that he never signed the nondisclosure or "hush" agreement, in hopes of making it invalid.

At the time the Prime Minister's spokesman said: "If you watch the video, they're walking along and there is an unseen ramp".

They will then meet the Queen for the first time, at Windsor Castle, before heading to Scotland where the United States president will spend the weekend at his Turnberry golf course in Ayrshire. A YouGov poll on Wednesday showed 77 percent had an unfavorable opinion of the president and just 50 percent thought his visit should go ahead.

"We urge that the Scottish Government rules out any use of Prestwick by the president or his entourage, and so send the most powerful message possible that Donald Trump is not welcome in Scotland".

The poll conducted this week said 63 percent found Trump racist, and 74 percent said he was sexist. Many thousands of Britons are expected to protest against Mr Trump in London and other cities.

Despite not being an official state visit, the Government is desperate to ensure the U.S. leader feels he is being treated with the appropriate level of pomp and ceremony.

But Brexit champion Nigel Farage predicted there would be a "real clash" on Brexit.

"And I believe it", the president said previous year of the welcome he was shown by China's President Xi.

Mr Trump flew to Britain after a somewhat chaotic 28 hours at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where he characteristically claimed victory over his demand for the allies to increase their defence spending.

But despite all the mass protests planned for his visit - the first of which are now taking place outside Winfield House, where the President spent the afternoon - he declared "people like me there".

Russian Federation has strongly denied the charge. It was during that trip to Washington that she invited him to the UK.

The President and his First Lady were met on the tarmac by US Ambassador Woody Johnson and UK Trade Secretary Liam Fox before he was whisked off to Johnson's house near Regent's Park.

Later, Trump and his wife attended a black-tie dinner hosted by May at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Winston Churchill, before returning to Winfield for the night.

At least 100 dead in Japan floods
The rains crippled transportation networks, with bus and train services partly or completely shut down in 15 prefectures. Evacuation orders were in place for almost 2 million people and landslide warnings were issued in many prefectures.

Dozens of demonstrations are planned throughout the country with the largest expected to take place in central London on Friday.
