In January, the US president canceled a planned visit to London to open the new US Embassy, calling it a bad deal in a poor location. Trump has expressed admiration for Churchill even as the president's critics contend that the parallels between the two leaders are limited, and even contradictory.

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the United States and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", May said ahead of the visit.

Many people say he's putting the interests of the American people first, while others are angry at his policies and treatment of minority groups.

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".

Organisers have also applied to fly it over his Turnberry golf course in South Ayrshire on Saturday, where they hope it will be seen by the president.

He said: 'They like me a lot in the UK.

The on-off visit of Donald Trump to the United Kingdom is finally happening - but that doesn't mean the controversy has stopped. He's not coming here for himself.

He was greeted by Liam Fox, global trade secretary, before travelling by helicopter to the USA ambassador's residence, Winfield House, in London's Regent's Park.

Trump will also bring a number of presidential helicopters on overseas trips, either VH-3D Sea Kings or VH-60N White Hawks - which are known as Marine One when the president is on board. "I just want the people to be happy". Mass protests are expected across Britain, leading police to mobilize to a degree not seen since 2011.

"There is definitely a sense that Britain needs America more because of Brexit", said Bronwen Maddox, head of the Institute for Government, a think tank.

Unlike visits from previous presidents, he won't be spending much time in London after his arrival. Nicola Sturgeon made it clear that she would be prepared to meet Mr Trump but no...

The prime minister will host a gala dinner and a meeting with Trump, giving them time to talk.
