London pub renames itself The Trump Arms ahead of presidential visit

He'll return to London to spend the night at Nine Elms, the residence of Woody Johnson, U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom.

US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrive at Stansted Airport, Britain, July 12 2018.

A giant inflatable "Trump baby" will not be allowed to fly over the USA president's Turnberry golf course when he visits over the weekend, Police Scotland have said.

Trump and his wife, First Lady Melania, will land at London's Stanstead airport after attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Thousands of protesters are expected to join demonstrations during his visit, including plans to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an angry orange baby. A spokesperson at the U.S. Embassy in London said there was nothing political about the timing of the alert, that such warnings were routine.

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.

Winfield House has one of the largest private gardens in greater London, but it won't be possible to see the "Trump baby" balloon from its grounds.

On Friday, as Melania Trump will accompany Philip May, UK PM Theresa May's husband, in visiting schoolchildren and veterans, Donald Trump will once again head outside the city to attend a military demonstration with his UK counterpart.

On Friday, May and Trump will hold talks on Brexit, relations with Russian Federation and trade ties at the prime minister's Chequers country residence followed by a press conference.

She added: 'So there's a very serious message behind this but what we're hoping is that on Friday this can be a symbol that people, no matter what they're campaigning on, can get behind, and can feel that this is representing them and all their campaign issues'.
