'Trump baby' blimp hovers over London's parliament amid protests of his visit

Yesterday's contentious official visit began with an explosive intervention by Mr Trump in which he criticised the Prime Minister's negotiating skills and warned that Mrs May's new "soft" Brexit blueprint would kill any future trade deal with the US. I never said anything bad about her.

"I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important". "I believe that the people in the UK, Scotland, Ireland, as you know I have property in Ireland, I have property all over, I think that those people they like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration", he said.

Journalist Tom Newton Dunn, Trump's interviewer, said the president seemed "sensitive" about the inflatable "Trump baby" being flown over London and its accompanying protests, set for Friday.

In his interview with The Sun, President Trump said: "I predicted Brexit".

In retrospect, British Prime Minister Theresa May might wonder whether this was really the best week for a visit from Donald Trump.

But the President was also clear to express that his favourable impression of Johnson did not mean the time for the end of May's leadership had come.

Sadiq Khan has said he will not rise to Donald Trump's "beastly" comments, as he urged Theresa May to stand up to the US President. I think she's a terrific woman, and I think she's doing a terrific job. "If they do that, then their trade deal with the United States will probably not be made".

As Mr Trump and Ms May spoke, thousands of protesters marched through central London, one of more than 100 demonstrations against the President planned during his stay.

"I'm afraid it is absolutely in Donald Trump's playbook".

As the Trumps dined with the Mays, protests in the British capital took place outside Winfield House, the residence of US Ambassador Woody Johnson.

Tom Newton Dunn, who interviewed President Trump for The Sun, reacted to the press conference on Twitter.

Hundreds gathered under a large balloon depicting Trump as an angry baby while others shouted and held signs aspiring to show the president he wasn't welcome.

There are street protests of Trump's first visit to Britain since taking office almost 18 months ago.

"I cherish the special relationship with the United States and the many Americans who contribute to our city", posted Khan, London's first Muslim mayor. "I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London".

Trump also said that he "would have done it much differently" in reference to the Brexit plan.

During the hour-long press conference, Trump went out of his way to praise May, and admitted he had apologised to her for The Sun's front page today. "He obviously likes me and says very good things about me", he added.
