How Trump has been treated in London?

 

Its always been hard to be in the trade partners country when you just labelled tariff on their goods. Not only trade but also his immigration and foreign policy is not liked by most of the Britishers out there hence Thousands of people are expected to attend demonstrations in London and other places to protest against his controversial approach to immigration, trade and foreign policy.

These are the major concerns of protesters faced by Trump in London and due to which he has to stay caution while roaming around in restaurants the way he used to walk around in his previous trips

The final part of Mr Trump’s trip in Scotland will likely exacerbate anger, as it is believed he will spend a lot time playing golf, with British taxpayers covering the £5m cost of security.

Showcasing the UK’s military and its capabilities will form a key element of the trip for the UK, with the US defense secretary having recently questioned Britain’s ongoing commitment to maintaining world-class forces.

The visit will take in a lavish black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, near Oxford, a working lunch with Ms May at Chequers, and a meeting with the Queen at Windsor Castle, but only a brief overnight stay in London.

Asked whether the president’s schedule was designed to keep him away from possible protests, a Downing Street spokeswoman said: “We’re looking forward to making sure the president has a chance to see and experience the UK beyond London and the South-East.”

She added that it is normal for prime ministers to make use of Chequers when foreign leaders are visiting, with former presidents Richard Nixon, George Bush Senior and Junior having all visited the 16th-century manor house in Buckinghamshire.

But the majority of the trip being outside London, means it seems unlikely the president will come close enough to Westminster to see the “Trump baby” blimp protesters plan to fly over the houses of parliament, after receiving permission for the stunt from London mayor Sadiq Khan.

The Downing Street spokeswoman added: “As with any protest, we are a free and open democracy and we believe in the right to peaceful protest.

“But I would also say that I think the majority of British people understand the importance of the UK-US alliance.

“The presidential visit is an important moment to recognise our close and special relationship and to have good and frank discussions on the key issues.”

The president and his wife Melania will then be guests of honour at a dinner for around 100 guests at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, a personal hero of the president.

The trip to the 18th-century country house, built for the first Duke of Marlborough as a reward for his military victories, will begin with a military ceremony in the Great Court of the Palace, where the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards will play the Liberty Fanfare, Amazing Grace, and the National Emblem.

Later in the trip Ms May and Mr Trump will also visit an unnamed defence site to view a demonstration of UK military capabilities, with a strong stress on integrated UK-US training.

The focus on defence comes after Mr Trump appeared to be impressed with the French military parade he saw on Bastille Day while being hosted by Emmanuel Macron earlier this year.

Since then the two leaders have apparently formed a close relationship and earlier this week a leaked letter from the US defense secretary Jim Mattis suggested France could be the “partner of choice” for the US in international affairs in the future.

The Downing Street spokeswoman said: “In every aspect of our relationship, we are seeking to deepen our special relationship and defence is one of those, and security.

“Our armed forces have fought together for over a century and no two countries work closer together in defence co-operation and that element of the visit is a reflection of that.”

The dinner at Blenheim will be attended by the Prime Minister, with guests including leaders of UK business sectors including financial services, travel, creative industries, food and drink, engineering, tech, infrastructure, pharmaceuticals and defence.

Downing Street said it is intended to “celebrate the strong business links between our two countries” at a time when the UK is hoping to strike a free trade deal with the US following Brexit.
