Mr Trump with meet with UK Prime Minister Theresa May and the Queen.

Mr Trump has described the United Kingdom as a place in "turmoil".

More than 50,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday against his visit, although a counter-gathering to welcome him is also planned. "But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for", said Trump.

"U.K. and USA special forces will be involved in a demonstration which will involve a counter-terrorism scenario and an outdoor capabilities demonstration showing equipment that the [British] special forces use when they conduct joint operations with their US counterparts", the Downing Street spokeswoman added.

He touched down in Britain for his first official visit and has already brushed off mass protests by saying: "I think they like me a lot in the UK" and caused Theresa May a major new headache over Brexit. But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Mr. Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to the USA leader's presence.

Addressing Mr Trump in front of an audience of business leaders at Winston Churchill's birthplace, Mrs May insisted that Brexit provides an opportunity for an "unprecedented" agreement to boost jobs and growth.

She listed Mr Trump's immigration policies, bans on some people entering the United States, his foreign policies, and lack of support for taking action on climate change as having affects across the globe.

The royals do not comment on politics, so there is unlikely to be any definitive public verdict on Trump's visit with Elizabeth Friday.

At a news conference, Trump said the United States could withdraw from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and go it alone, if necessary, although he said that likely won't be needed. She also plans to shift the focus during the rest of Mr. Trump's visit, hoping to steer him toward talk about trade and the growing threat of Russian Federation.

After the president and First Lady Melania Trump arrived at Stansted Airport, Trump said he was "fine" about any protests during his visit. "If a balloon flying over London makes people laugh, I think that's absolutely worth it", she says.

British law requires any petition supported by more than 100,000 people to be considered for parliamentary debate, even though there was no serious attempt to prohibit Mr. Trump from coming to Britain.

Johnson resigned as UK Foreign Secretary over May's handling of Brexit, a move that saw Britain vote to leave the European Union in June, 2016, following a referendum. "Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future", she said in excerpts released in advance.

The President is also due to travel to Scotland, where he owns two golf courses and Scotland's interim police chief has said more than 5,000 officers would be needed for to cover the trip, including specialist riot and armed units.

Mr Trump had joked earlier this week that his meeting with Vladimir Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki on Monday "may be the easiest" part of his European trip.
