"Friday will witness one of the biggest and most vibrant demonstrations in recent British history", the organizers and lawmakers declared in an open letter Wednesday.

The extra security measures may strike Londoners as incongruous, set amid the leafy surrounds of Regent's Park, a spot popular with joggers, picnickers and families.

"I think he is a great representative for your country", Trump told The Sun.

The timing of the comments could not be worse for May, who is fighting a rebellion among her own MPs over Brexit which has seen Brexit secretary David Davis and foreign secretary Boris Johnson quit her government.

"We are expecting hundreds of thousands of people in London wanting their voices heard because they reject the normalization of a Trump agenda-one that is based around hate and divisiveness", said the Stop Trump Coalition.

Speaking to The Sun, Trump had this to say about London's hospitality during his most recent visit to the United Kingdom: "I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London". "Look around. You go through certain areas that didn't exist ten or 15 years ago".

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he added. "But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for".

"It is a vision that respects the result of the referendum (vote to leave), and delivers a principled and practical Brexit", Brexit Secretary Dominic Raab said in the foreword. He is scheduled to have tea with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle where her grandson Prince Harry married USA actress Meghan Markle in May.

Soon after Trump arrived at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire for a gala black tie dinner on Thursday night, The Sun newspaper published an interview with the U.S. President that is likely to embarrass his host.

After spending the night at the United States ambassador's official residence in Regent's Park, London, the USA president will join the Theresa May at a military base on Friday to view a joint counter-terrorism exercise involving UK and U.S. special forces.

He was met at Stansted Airport by dignitaries including International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and the U.S. ambassador Woody Johnson. "They are just a lobbyist for Amazon", he said. "Is it any wonder that forces struggle to fill their requirements?" the Guardian reported.

The president will spend the vast majority of his time outside of London and other major cities, where mass demonstrations have been planned to protest his visit.

Far more protesters are expected Friday. Scottish police, however, said that the balloon could not fly over the Turnberry golf club Trump owns on the west coast of the country. "We have been delighted to accept their invitation".

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence.

"Donald Trump is not welcome here". "It's also about giving a boost to those in America resisting his policies", said Daniel Jones, 26, who wore a red boiler suit and baseball cap emblazoned with "TRUMP BABYSITTER".

"From his disgraceful equating of anti-fascist campaigners with Nazis in Charlottesville, his withdrawal from the Paris Climate Agreement, to his Islamophobic travel ban and his misogyny Donald Trump has demonstrated that he should be denied any kind of welcome".

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 Trump from entering Britain.
