Trump stokes Britain's Brexit turmoil at start of visit

US President Donald Trump at the Nato meeting

He is scheduled to meet British Prime Minister Theresa May, who wants a post-Brexit trade deal, days after he said the United Kingdom was in "turmoil".

The government said Britain would act "as if in a combined customs territory" with the European Union, using technology at its border to determine whether goods from third countries were bound for Britain or the European Union, and charging the appropriate tariffs in those cases. "We need to show across the world that we are not going to stand for our women's rights, which have been so hard-won and so hard fought for, to be demolished by a monster like Trump".

Protesters were expected to rally during his visit.

"[Until] I remember her desperate rush to invite him, her repeated reluctance to criticise his Muslim ban or caging of children, her chasing him for a bad trade deal".

He added, "If they do that, their trade deal with the USA will probably not be made because we have enough difficulty with the European Union".

The president spent the night at the USA ambassador's residence located in a London park behind a "ring of steel" fencing, stalked by noisy demonstrators. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

Ruddy's glowing descriptions of the dinner and the relationship between Trump and May contrasted sharply with an interview Thursday in the British tabloid The Sun in which Trump criticized May and complimented her opponents.

Protests are planned across the country where the president says the people like him a lot. "They voted for us to take back control of our money, our law and our borders and that's exactly what we will do". And that's fine. She should negotiate the best way she knows how. The CNN reporter was told: "CNN is fake news, I don't take questions from fake news".

But as President Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday, he will find plenty of people who think it is more important to oppose him than it is to nurture U.S. -U.K. ties. "I am just saying I think he would be a great Prime Minister".

Melania Trump brings major glamour for black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace
President Donald Trump landed in London after leaving a 2-day summit in Brussels where he claimed victory on defense spending. We believe that this publicly-owned facility should not be used for Donald Trump's visit.

"Whatever you do is OK with us, just make sure we can trade together, that's all that matters". But Britain said European Union nationals should be able to travel visa-free to Britain for tourism or "temporary business", and there should be measures allowing young people and students to work and study in Britain.

The US president's brash style and hard line "America First" policies have caused consternation across Britain's political spectrum and society.

The exterior of The Trump Arms public house, formally named The Jameson, which has embraced the arrival of US President Donald Trump for a visit by changing its name and decorating its interior with Trump memorabilia, is seen in West London on July 12, 2018.

Late a year ago, Ms May herself criticised Mr Trump for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said the president would not be welcome to address the chamber.

"You have a mayor who has done a awful job in London", Trump said, adding later that Khan had "done a very bad job on terrorism".

He did, however, praise the Queen Elizabeth II, whom he is scheduled to meet on Friday.

He then travels north to Scotland where he will spend the weekend privately, joined by son Eric Trump.

More than 60,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

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