A six-metre high blimp depicting US President Donald Trump is set to be launched over London’s Parliament Square as protests against the presidential visit continue.
Last month, a leaked recording of Johnson revealed that the former foreign secretary was “increasingly admiring of Donald Trump”.
The US leader also claimed that the PM ignored his advice on Brexit negotiations: “I would have done it much differently”.
Earlier in the day, the President arrived at Sandhurst, joined by May, where they observed a counterterrorism exercise.
The Queen’s guards were marching while the American national anthem was playing.
The U.S. president and First Lady Melania Trump are in the United Kingdom for two days this week between the NATO Summit in Brussels yesterday and Trump’s upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the weekend.
Trump walked ahead of the 92-year-old while inspecting troops and did not bow when he met her – a couple of minor protocol breaches – but the meeting went smoothly.
Organiser Daniel Jones, a charity communications officer aged 26, said they were trying to make people laugh as well as making a serious point.
The British monarch welcomed Trump and Melania at Windsor Castle, Berkshire, for afternoon tea.
Trump has long held a fascination with British history, traditions and royalty.
His previous comments about members of the royal family have not been so generous. “If signing up to the Trump worldview is the price of a deal, it’s not worth paying”, said one MP in May’s party.
“I only have one regret in the women department — that I never had the opportunity to court Lady Diana Spencer”.
“I told her how to do it”. She lit up the room with her charm, her presence.
The president added: “I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad”.
The Queen has met 11 serving US presidents during her reign. During the interview with The Sun, Trump also took a hard line on the nation’s ongoing Brexit negotiations, telling the tabloid that he advised U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May against the “soft” blueprint she recently presented to alleviate economic fallout as the country separates from the European Union. You don’t see, like, anything embarrassing.
The POTUS recently told The Sun of meeting the royal: “She is a tremendous woman”.
