US President Donald Trump is on his first official visit to the UK this week. On the first day of his visit, Trump and first lady Melania Trump were invited as guests for a royal dinner at the Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire by PM Theresa May.
Apart from a gala welcome, the US president was greeted by some protests as well. Thousands of protesters took to streets to demonstrate against Trump’s administration policies. Though he brushed off the protests, saying “I think they like me a lot in the UK. I think they like me a lot in the UK I think they agree with me on immigration. I’m very strong on immigration.”
Blasting the British PM on Brexit, Trump said a free trade deal with Britain might be impossible if London went ahead with May’s proposals for post-Brexit ties with the European Union, in damaging remarks that could widen domestic criticism of her plans.
The US president is also to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle on Friday afternoon.
