Trump visiting United Kingdom

Donald Trump’s controversial visit to the United Kingdom has begun, at the same time a poll has been released saying that 50% of British people polled don’t want him to visit, but with Trump claiming “I think they like me a lot in the UK’.

BBC – Donald Trump: US president heads to dinner with Theresa May

The event at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire, is expected to focus on post-Brexit trade, and comes days after Mr Trump said the UK was in “turmoil”.

Protesters have gathered outside the US ambassador’s residence in London, where the Trumps are staying tonight, and near Blenheim Palace.

Extra security is in place to police the protests, but Mr Trump has said that Britons “like me a lot” and that he feels “fine” about any such protests.

Speaking at the Nato summit in Brussels before he arrived, Mr Trump said the UK was a “hot spot right now”.

Trump has had a say on Brexit – Donald Trump: Brexit is turning out ‘a little bit differently’

The US president said “Brexit is Brexit” but it was turning out “a little bit differently” with the UK “partially involved” with the EU.

“Maybe they’re taking a little bit of a different route,” he went on.

Mr Trump backed a Leave vote ahead of the 2016 EU referendum, when he was a US presidential candidate, and he was asked for his views at the Nato summit press conference.

“It’s not for me to say,” the US president said.

“I’d like to see them be able to work it out so it can go quickly, whatever they work out.”

      3 million immigrants turfed out & massive drone strike deaths under Obama, but he speaks nicely so big tick when he visited England.
      Mugabe – welcome.
      Erdogan – no problem.
      Bush = huge protests. Trump = huge protests.
      Leftists and their warped priorities back in action.

        Bush = huge protests. A liar who sucked Britain via Blair into two morasses of two & ill-advised wars that have had far-reaching negative impacts on the UK. Hardly surprising. The left knew it was bullshit.

            Would have been better made dropping Bush out of it.
            Bush caused Obama who caused Trump.

            Actually, I’ll correct that.
            Bush caused Obama who caused Hillary Clinton who caused Trump.

    classic Trump..NZH

    ‘He touched down in Britain for his first official visit and has already brushed off mass protests by saying: “I think they like me a lot in the UK” and caused Theresa May a major new headache over Brexit.’

    • He doesn’t ‘get it’, does he ?

      It’s none of his business who the Mayor of London is, it’s not for him to tell the UK how to vote on Brexit. Now he’s trying to bully the UK PM.

      He must be costing an eyewatering amount of money, for which the UK taxpayers could find better use .

      It was interesting seeing what people think of him in and around Aberdeen. He believes that they love him, but nobody who was interviewed did. Nor did the ones they spoke to in the street.

        ”He doesn’t ‘get it’, does he ?”

        Yes, he does get it. It’s called strategy and he’s aiming for a better deal with Britain regardless of the outcome of Brexit talks.

      ‘They make you feel unwelcome’: Trump reveals giant baby blimp protest has put him off London which ‘he used to love as a city’… and the 20ft balloon now plans to follow him across the UK
      President Donald Trump has revealed he feels unwelcome in London
      Trump touched down in London on Thursday for his first official visit to the UK
      He revealed a 20ft ‘Baby Trump’ blimp made in his likeness is to blame
      Speaking on the balloon he said: ‘I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London’
      The balloon is set to fly this weekend during his stay in London and afterwards will be transported overnight to Scotland to fly at his Turnberry golf estate.
      ….
      Haven’t checked out whether the Khan Baby Blimp is airborne yet …

    • Have you seen the blimp (one can’t really call something that size a balloon) ?

      It’s very funny.

      • I think so. Yours crossed mine, I was about to say the same thing.

        He has FINALLY caught on to the fact that people don’t want him or like him and he is NOT welcome. Poor baby, wringing his teeny weeny hands.

        He slags off the Mayor of London, then expects to be welcome there. What a prat.

    Farcical that the UK Lefty Luvvies are exercised about Trump and oblivious to their own Brexit debacle. Whatever.

      Don’t be daft. Trump blows in, insults May as soon as he gets his fat ass on the tarmac, & tells Britain Boris should be PM. Imagine the reaction in the US if May waltzed in to Mar-a-Largo, demanded cucumber sandwiches with her Champers, gave an interview & insulted Trump for sucking up to Putin & KJU, & said Jeff Sessions should be President.
