Donald Trump Arrives In UK As Large Crowds Of Protesters Prepare To Descend On “Stop Trump” March
The British forces are preparing for massive protest as Donald Trump arrives in Britain on the afternoon of Thursday to meet with Theresa May and the Queen.

Donald Trump’s controversial visit set to be met with mass protests. He will largely avoid London during a four-day visit as mass protests are expected against his “zero-tolerance” policy.

The visit was delayed multiple times as the US president continued to offend the UK over the past 18 months. According to a YouGov poll released Wednesday, 77% of Brits have an unfavorable opinion of Trump, and only half think the visit should go ahead.

However, the Prime Minister said: “There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the US and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead,” May said, adding that she was “looking forward to this week’s important discussions”.

Rights groups and activists have urged Brits to rise up in anti-Trump protests planned with tens of thousands of people expected to descend on the capital.

Zoe Gardner, a spokesperson of the Stop Trump Coalition which is organizing protests across the UK said: “It is in the interests of the U.K. to stand up and take a firm moral stance,” and “We are at a very key point in history right now, and we need to take a stand.”

Last week, permission for a huge blimp in the shape of “baby Donald Trump” was issued by London Mayor Sadiq Khan to flow near the UK Parliament in an eye-catching stunt.

Almost all British forces, including firearms officers, armed counter-terrorism units, public order officers and dog handlers are being deployed to help keep order at protests, including the “Stop Trump” march planned for 13 July.

Trump’s visit will include meeting May, Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle where they will watch a military walk past, and business leaders before he heads to Scotland for a weekend of golf.

When he has been asked how he feels about the protests expected to greet him in the UK, Trump replied: “I think it’s fine I think they like me a lot in the UK I think they agree with me on immigration,” he added, “I think that’s why Brexit happened.”

Ahead of the visit, the workers installed temporary security fencing outside Winfield House. The metal mesh barricades and blocks were erected around the perimeter of the US Ambassador’s swanky central London residence, Winfield House, where Trump will spend Thursday night.
