Trump got the most eccentric response from Britishers: May

 

The president savaged Mr May’s Brexit proposals and warned they would likely kill off any chance of a future trade deal with the US in a bombshell interview.

He also backed former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson for PM, and launched a fresh attack on Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

As he was due to meet the Queen today, thousands of people descended on central London for a women’s march and a ‘Stop Trump’ protest calling for people to “build bridges not walls.”

During his state visit to London, May told BBC what Trump has a trick for her to deal with EU and it was astonishing. Trump told May not to walk away from negotiations but sue them. What does that mean?

He also told May that he may not contest for 2022 presidential election in USA.

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.

                          Immigration         –         Trade         –          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.”

Donald Trump ‘considered invading Venezuela’, reports say

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.”

Mr Trump arrives in the UK on board Air Force One next Thursday afternoon, straight from the Nato summit in Brussels where he is expected to confront European allies over levels of defence

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.

Cheapest traveler guide for Scotland

If you are planning to take a round of meadows in Scotland I will be going to have a quick review of my own experience in brief. No matter you are alone or a group of folks one always tends to save money instead of spending hugely on accommodation.  When I say saving money that does not primarily means sacrificing quality. Not at all. I used to think how can I get a round of Scotland in the minimum amount. I always wanted to cover maximum places without spending a night in 3,4 or 5 stars places. That literally saves huge I swear. If we talk about traveling we all have an idea hierarchy goes like by air, train and by road (either bus or car). There is no question about assuming of by air or by car as it does not make any sense if you are concerned about saving. So let’s talk about train and bus. If you want to save time then one can opt train by paying 20% to 40% more than a bus. But if you are good to go with the bus than its the best option to go for. To be honest you won’t get fully pack bus every time. Well, booking on Mega bus surprises you some time by offering you longest journey in £1 plus 50p booking fee that’s incredible but not happens much frequent. It did happen to me when I booked from Manchester to poly mouth I did buy the ticket but never went. That’s funny, though. Anyways besides mega bus, you can opt National express as well. conditions of both buses are almost same but yes mega buses have 2 stories but if you are not bothered about that it’s all right. I personally liked Mega bus because it has power socket lol. Well, let’s talk about living. If you want to save money then go for hostels. The offer starts from £15 to £40 per bed. So the cheapest of all. Hostel like the smart city has branches all over. Rooms quality is good, It offers 4 beds in 1 room attached washroom. Standard is adorable. It offers you sitting area and all necessary facilities which one usually require. So, in short, you 4 days and 3 nights journey which includes ( living + transport+ food) commenced in as low as £150 to £ 200 depending on your food. That’s how you can cover numerous places in low budget no matter you are alone or with folks its per person.
