London pub rebrands itself as ‘Trump Arms’ before presidential visit

Protestors in Brussels target Donald Trump

Here is what 20 people who we spoke to on the streets of London thought about the United States president's upcoming visit.

Trump lands in Britain on Thursday following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels where he chided Germany and other European nations for failing to contribute enough to defence spending.

While no plans for Mr Trump to enjoy a round of golf have been confirmed, a protest will be held outside the president's Balmedie course in Aberdeenshire on Saturday, and it is expected there could be demonstrations around his Turnberry resort too.

In what will likely plunge the already fraught US-UK "special relationship" into further doubt, the US Embassy in London has felt the need to warn its own citizens over upcoming protests against Donald Trump's visit this week.

Some 50,000 people are expected to attend a protest against Trump's visit on Friday (July 13)-just one of several demonstrations that organizers have promised will be a "carnival of resistance."

Sadiq Khan supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority to allow the 20ft inflatable, dubbed "Trump Baby" to rise above Parliament Square Gardens for two hours on Friday morning while the U.S. president is in London.

Real Madrid make signing Chelsea FC star top priority
If Real Madrid do indeed want to sign Hazard , they will certainly have to shell out staggering sums of money to do so. Subsequently, Hazard sent a number of Chelsea fans into a anxious frenzy with his statements.

Bilateral talks with United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May will happen at her country home in Chequers, and not at the prime minister's London residence, at 10 Downing Street, as is traditional.

"There are many Trump supporters around here who will be happy to see it", landlord Damien Smyth, whose wife is from NY, told the Evening Standard newspaper.

US President Donald Trump is set to land in London on Thursday for a three-day visit to the UK.

"He's here to do more important things than worry about some protesters".

May's future was thrown into question after two high-level cabinet members -including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson- resigned amid the growing chaos surrounding Brexit negotiations. "That's certainly up to the people, not up to me", said Trump.

Most of the protests will take place that day in central London, the USA officials said, with some occurring the days before and after.
