Trump Did NOT Cancel Trip To London In July 2018

"Among the planned demonstrations is a large "Trump baby" blimp, which was approved by London city officials to fly over Parliament".

Protesters had a successful crowdfunding campaign to create a giant balloon of Donald Trump as an angry baby, which will be flown over London on Friday 13th July.

Mr Trump has a White House doctor at his side at all times and one of five rotating military aides who carry the nuclear "football" - equipped with communication tools and a book with prepared war plans.

May appears to have seen off an immediate challenge to her leadership from malcontents within her Conservative Party but Trump's comments ahead of the trip - that Britain was "in somewhat turmoil" and that it was up to the people if she stayed in power - fanned the sense of political crisis.

Protests are expected against Trump, whose policies - including a travel ban on a number of predominantly Muslim countries, detention of child migrants on the US-Mexico border and imposition of tariffs on European Union steel and aluminium exports - have all been criticised by the UK.

American nationals have been told to be careful on the streets of London during planned demonstrations against Donald Trump later this week.

Ahead of Mr Trump's visit, the PM said: "Our trade and investment relationship is unrivalled, we are the largest investors in each other's economies and every day a million British people go to work for US companies in the UK and a million Americans go to work for UK companies in the US". The "Stop Trump" march will travel through central London on Friday afternoon, before ending with a rally in Trafalgar Square.

The US president has angered many in Britain in the last two years with a series of actions and pronouncements.

The Trump 25: Life on Trump's list is complex, jolting

The NHC has given the remnants of Beryl a 40% chance of development in the next five days. "We are in a vulnerable state", he said.

Trump says he's confident Kim will denuclearize
KCNA said Pyongyang had offered to discuss declaring a formal end to the war to mark next month's anniversary of the armistice. And he said some progress had been made towards agreeing "the modalities" of North Korea's destruction of a missile facility.

The embassy advised Americans in the country to be aware of their surroundings, "keep a low profile", exercise caution if large gatherings are present, and monitor local media reports for updates.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4's Today programme, Mr Ruddy said: 'Trump will think the baby balloon is about him so it's probably a positive thing.

Asked on BBC radio about Trump's comments ahead of his trip to Britain, he said: "There's always a turmoil in every country but no, I think the United Kingdom is proceeding as it always does".

U.S. ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, has said a deal will be "a major priority" for Trump, calling Brexit "a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to change direction".

His meeting with Theresa May will take place in her Chequers country residence on Friday, followed by tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

The British Prime Minister Theresa May will host a dinner for the President at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire before he spends the night at the US Ambassadors residence in Regents Park.

Protesters are set to descend on the Regent's Park residence, with plans to blare out recordings of children crying for their parents at U.S. detention centres.
