Trump's United Kingdom visit and protests

United States ambassador to the UK Robert Wood Johnson told Sky News in June that meeting the queen was the highlight of Trump's trip to the UK. Complimenting the Prime Minister with whom he was sharing a stage, President Trump continued: "This incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job, a great job. She wanted to go a different route", he told the paper. However, he did just opposite to that. The Queen had invited him 18 months ago.

Trump may be referring to his past feud with London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has been outspoken about his disapproval of Trump's visit. According to his schedule, Trump will join the Queen for tea at Windsor Castle, attend a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace with Prime Minister Theresa May, and stick his fingers his ears while yelling "LALALALALA" whenever he sees protesters.

Earlier, activists floated a six-metre-high blimp outside parliament depicting the U.S. president as an orange, snarling nappy-wearing baby. On Friday, people took to the streets outside of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament as a part of a "Stop Trump" demonstration, which included a giant balloon created to impersonate the president.

The blimp flew over Britain's Parliament Square for around two hours.
