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".

The demonstration is organised by 'Scotland United Against Trump.' It is to be noted that the US President is also expected to visit Scotland, where he owns a number of golf resorts, the day after his visit to London, read a statement by the Foreign Press Association.

He said: 'I am going to a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations'.

"I think they like me a lot in the UK", Trump said in Brussels. "With a lot of resignations", Trump told a news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Despite the welcome from May, many Britons remain deeply opposed to Trump's visit. "I was happy when Obama did it".

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".

Ambassador Johnson's sentiment has been echoed by a number of residents in the north of England, who say that whether they agree with the president or not, he is worthy of respect as America's leader.

"Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there".

As well as in London, protests are expected to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff after Trump arrives here on Thursday.

On Thursday, Trump will travel to Blenheim Palace, the 18th-century mansion where Britain's World War Two leader Winston Churchill was born and spent most of his childhood.

May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump there that will be attended by senior ministers and about 100 business leaders, including from Blackstone group, Blackrock, Diageo, McLaren and Arup.

Later in the day, the President will head to Windsor Castle, where he will have a tea with the Queen.

On Friday, he will visit off-camera a British military base and will have a working lunch at Chequers with the Prime Minister, where a number of issue including trade and Brexit will be discussed.

The two leaders are also expected to discuss Russia, Brexit and Middle East.

Trump is set to visit the United Kingdom later this week after he attends a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and before a highly anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
