Donald Trump has come to visit the UK and people are not happy about it.

The US President will spend a long weekend around the country after attending a Nato summit in Brussels on Wednesday.

According to UK Prime Minister, Theresa May, Trump will discuss trade deals and security as well as Brexit and the Middle East.

BBC diplomatic correspondent James Robbins described the trip as ‘the most controversial visit ever made by an American president to Britain’.


He added that it was also ‘really noticeable that he will barely spend any time in London’ – perhaps to avoid the protests.

An estimated 50,000 people will be taking to the streets of London over the next 24 hours to peacefully protest against the US President’s arrival.

Speaking about the protests over his UK visit, President Donald Trump told reporters: ‘They like me a lot in the UK. I think they agree with me on immigration.

‘I think that’s why Brexit happened.’


Trump is set to arrive in the UK at Stansted airport around Thursday lunchtime.

The President and First Lady Melania will have a meet and greet at the US Embassy in London. The couple will then attend a black-tie dinner Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire hosted by Theresa May. They will be joined by leaders from business sectors, celebrating the business links between the UK and US.

On Friday morning, Trump will join Theresa May on a visit to the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. They will then travel to Chequers, May’s country residence, to discuss ‘substantive bilateral talks on a range of foreign policy issues’ over lunch. A press conference will follow. 


Later that day, the US president will meet the Queen at Windsor Castle. During the afternoon, he’ll will inspect the Guard of Honour before watching the military march past and having tea. 

In the evening, Trump will be greeted by David Mundell, the Secretary of State for Scotland, as he heads north for the rest of his weekend in the UK. 

Despite only visiting the UK for four days, Trump is believed to be spending Saturday playing golf at his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire, which he bought in 2014. 

On Sunday, Trump and the First Lady will leave the UK to fly back to America.


There are at least 84 protests taking place all over the UK against Trump’s visit.

Most will centre in London but there have been regional events arranged in all major cities across the country.

On Thursday evening, activists are being encouraged to head to a ‘welcome party’ in Regents Park from 5:30pm. They will welcome Trump with a ‘wall of noise’ created by pots, pans, megaphones and whistles. It’s also thought people might play audio clips of crying migrant children recorded at the US border over the last few weeks.

A second protest will take place at Blenheim Palace in Oxford, where police have already set up camp ahead of the crowds.

Other protests are taking place across the country including in Bristol, Birmingham, Newcastle, Brighton and Leeds.

The blimp

As well as taking to the streets to protests against the US President’s arrival, activists raised £16,000 to launch a 20ft, orange blimp that depicts Donald Trump as an angry smartphone-clutching toddler over central London skies this weekend. 

More than 10,000 people signed a petition calling for the blimp to be allowed, and last week London mayor Sadiq Khan and the Greater London Authority gave their permission for it to hit the skies.

It’s expected that the blimp will be mainly tethered at Parliament Square and will fly from 9.30am on Friday until 11.30am Saturday.
