Police from almost every force have been called up for the U.S. president's arrival, as demonstrators prepare to protest against his first trip to the UK.

Strengthening trade and defence links will be the focal point of US President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom, the Prime Minister has said.

After he was invited previous year, more than 1.86 million people signed a petition saying Trump should not be given a state visit because it could embarrass the queen and thousands of police will also be on duty with large protests expected.

He's one of the most divisive presidents in U.S. history.

He again postponed his visit in January this year after remarking that the relocation of the USA embassy in London was a "bad deal" made by President Obama, and that he was not interested in cutting the ribbon at the opening.

The embassy said these demonstrations were expected to attract large crowds and cause road closures. The proposal was debated in parliament where Trump was heavily criticized.

London mayor Sadiq Khan has given the okay for a giant orange blimp to fly over the streets of the capital.

"Be aware of your surroundings (and) exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent", it added.

Novak Djokovic under fire for backing Croatia
Djokovic overcame a series of rows with the chair umpire to record a 6-3 3-6 6-2 6-2 victory over Japan's former US Open finalist. Things got worse between the two later when Djokovic felt Ramos failed to sanction Nishikori for a similar act in the fourth set.

On Friday evening, Trump and the First Lady whisk up to Scotland for a weekend of golf and relaxation - and more protests outside his resort. "That's certainly up to the people, not up to me", said Trump. "You need to be a part of saying no to some of these people". "Bad deal. Wanted me to cut ribbon-NO!" "We seem to be going into a cycle of rather regressive thinking".

On Friday, May and Trump will go to to watch a joint counter-terrorism exercise by British and USA special forces at a military base. She pointed out there are many issues that legislators have urged her to raise with her American counterpart.

He was severely criticised last November, including by Prime Minister Theresa May, after sharing three inflammatory anti-Muslim videos posted by far-right group Britain First.

Theresa May and Donald Trump will host a joint press conference.

"It's an insult", Farage, a former leader of the UK Independence Party, said. "They trust us with stuff on intelligence", he said.

The economic and trade relationship with the U.S.is also vital: The U.S.is the U.K.'s single largest trading partner.

"Donald Trump could do perfectly fine doing rallies in the United States".

Tonight, they will join prominent business figures that include one of Britain's richest men, Sir Jim Ratcliffe at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.
