London pub renames itself The Trump Arms ahead of presidential visit

12 July, 2018, 22:44 | Author: Candice Daniels

Winfield House is the only place where Trump will spend time in central London, where demonstrators are expected to gather in their tens of thousands for a march on Friday afternoon, hours after a giant "Trump baby" balloon is flown near the UK Parliament in an eye-catching stunt.

But there are still plenty of detractors, as loudly demonstrated by a passenger in auto driving past the U.S. flag-adorned pub who shouted "F*** Trump", to which Mr Smyth chuckled.

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'.

It is widely believed that such a schedule has been designed for Donald Trump because of the overwhelming protests that are expected to descend on London during his visit.

The dinner is Trump's official welcome to the United Kingdom during their first visit since Trump's election.

The decision was met with disappointment from Scottish Green leader Patrick Harvie, who said: "We're used to seeing the President throw his toys out of the pram in the face of peaceful protests, but a tantrum about a balloon is quite unnecessary".

Labour Party legislator Paul Flynn, who has criticized Trump in Parliament, says Trump has outraged Britons - and people around the world - with his harsh treatment of immigrants.

He also said he might speak to Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over May's plans for a business-friendly Brexit which was only agreed by her cabinet last Friday after two years of wrangling.

Mr Trump and his wife Melania arrived at Stansted airport, where he was met by the UK's global trade secretary Liam Fox.

Mr Trump and First Lady Melania Trump flew into London's Stansted airport on Air Force One, before they travelled by helicopter to the US Ambassador's official residence in central London.

After taking a firm stance both days of the conference, which included calling Germany a "captive" of Russian energy, Trump did say US commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation remains strong and he thanked other members for "additional money they are putting up".

Ignoring all diplomatic niceties, the convention-shredding United States president set up the four-day visit with a rebuke of May as she battles to stop her government falling apart over Brexit.

He then echoed the British Prime Minister's own words, that "Brexit should mean Brexit". "I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly, whatever they work out".

Trump will spend the weekend at the former, which he described as a "magical place", before heading to Helsinki, Finland, for a much-anticipated summit on July 16 with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The trip coincides with a tumultuous week for May after two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves next March.

The Jameson in Hammersmith has rebranded itself The Trump Arms for the US President's visit.

Donald Trump is due to arrive in London on Thursday and will meet the Prime Minister and the Queen.
