How are you marking Donald Trump's United Kingdom visit?

US President Donald Trump has arrived in the UK for the start of a four-day visit, during which he will meet with UK Prime Minister Theresa May as well as with Queen Elizabeth II during a weekend in Scotland.

President Donald Trump arrived in London Thursday afternoon, where he will attend a state dinner and meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May - after making his mark on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium. London Mayor Sadiq Khan - who has had a particularly contentious relationship with President Trump - approved protesters' use of a "Trump baby" blimp during the president's visit to Great Britain.

On Friday, demonstrators are expected to gather near Chequers, the Prime Minister's country residence, where May and Trump will hold a working lunch.

John Rees of the Stop the War group addressed the protesters, saying of Trump: "He's a wrecking ball for race relations, he's a wrecking ball for prosperity, he's a wrecking ball for women's rights, he's a wrecking ball for any peace and justice in this world and we have to stop him".

In a statement ahead of Trump's arrival, she said the visit would focus on trade and strengthening defence and security ties, saying there was no stronger alliance than Britain's "special relationship with the United States".

She added: "They will be talking to teams on the ground and they will be liaising with police services up and down the country".

Donald Trump says Ireland likes him a lot and agrees with his views on immigration in a clip released from the President's post-Nato summit in Brussels by CNN. On Thursday, Mr. Trump shrugged off the planned protests, telling reporters "they like me a lot in the U.K".

But besides that, the USA president is set to avoid much of the mass protests as most of his official engagements have been planned outside London.

A number of protests have been planned for the president's stay in the country, with the largest march due to be held in London on Friday.

Will Geddes, an global security specialist who has been involved in past state visit planning, estimates Mr Trump has brought around 150 secret service agents with him.

There are also plans for protestors to gather close to the U.S. ambassador's residence in Regent's Park, where Trump and his wife, Melania, will stay overnight on Thursday.

He's one of the most divisive presidents in United States history.

He believes Mr Trump's visit shows his respect for the United Kingdom, as his political career would get more of a boost from staying at home and campaigning in America.

Trade and security links, Brexit and the Middle East are among the issues to be discussed by Trump and May.

"Give us your tired and your oppressed and we'll divide you from your children", he said of Trump's policies.

Mrs May will host Mr Trump and his wife Melania at a lavish dinner at Blenheim Palace this evening.

People wait to see the arrival of US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Winfield House in London on July 12, 2018.

Melania's day won't be spent entirely apart from her husband, as she and Donald are set to meet the queen at Windsor Castle, where they will take tea with the royal after watching a military parade.

They had hoped to fly it over the South Ayrshire golf resort on Saturday to coincide with the president's visit there.
