Trump says May is doing Brexit wrong, threatening United States trade deal

President Donald Trump to visit Windsor on UK tour Trade and tea with queen for Trump in a Britain in 'turmoil'

Protesters against Trump's visit gather near an entrance to the U.S. ambassador's residence in Regent's Park in London on Thursday.

In an interview, Trump lashed out at Khan, who has allowed a Trump protest balloon to float above Westminster during the president's visit. They are expecting up to 8,000 people to take part throughout the day.

The president told The Sun: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal".

Mrs Trump sat in front of a poster which said "Be the best you can be". Police worked overtime, their days off canceled.

"It's also about giving a boost to those in America resisting his policies", he said.

In an explosive start to his trip, Mr Trump warned a lucrative trade deal was unlikely to go ahead if the United Kingdom maintained a strong relationship with the EU.

Organizers have been given permission to float a giant balloon depicting Mr. Trump as a baby and they've already declared victory by noting that the President is largely avoiding London during his visit.

A larger protest by the Stop Trump organization will leave from Portland Place in the afternoon and end at Trafalgar Square in the evening, in what is billed as a "carnival of resistance" in coordination with dozens of events planned across the UK.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended a gala dinner in their honor Thursday hosted by the prime minister at the 17th century Blenheim Palace, 100 kilometers northwest of London. The issue was debated in Parliament, where the House speaker made clear that Trump would not be given the honor of speaking in Parliament.

Trump gears up for meeting with "competitor" Putin after rocky North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit
Trump has said next week's meeting with Putin "may be the easiest" part of his European tour. And one of the freedoms we have is freedom of speech and the freedom to express your views.

It has just been announced that Melania's husband - US President Donald Trump - will be treated to a Guard of Honour when he meets the Queen at Windsor Castle on Friday.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan said the demonstrations are not anti-American but rather reflect opposition to "the politics of fear and despair".

"The idea that we would curtail freedom to protest, freedom of speech, because someone's feelings are hurt is laughable", Khan said Friday in an interview with CNN's Christiane Amanpour.

In the Sun interview, which was conducted during Wednesday's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Trump renewed attacks on Mayor of London Sadiq Khan, with whom he has a long-running feud. A spokesperson for Downing Street told i the First Lady will be spending time with veterans and school children at a location in London on Friday morning, although they could not comment on where this visit would take place.

"I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly", he said.

"I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

Trump's schedule will largely keep him out of central London, however.
