A high fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent. "This includes armed patrols, dog patrols, monitored CCTV and other measures".

President Trump said the British people "voted to break it up, so I imagine that " s what they " ll do" and "Brexit is Brexit".

"Yes, there might be protests", he said.

Trump and Melania landed on Air Force One at 2pm to begin their four-day tour of the UK in London, reports Metro UK. The first lady wore a bodycon beige dress, cinched with an orange skinny belt, accessorized with beige stilettos.

"Tomorrow we have some large protests in central London and as the president of the United States makes his way through the country it is the Metropolitan Police who are responsible for his protection and security".

"The President is not avoiding anything", he said.

President Donald Trump has said British Prime Minister Theresa May's proposed Brexit plan will "probably kill" off any chance of a UK-US trade deal.

Britons' dislike for Trump became most apparent during the 2016 presidential campaign, when Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States.

Hundreds of placard-waving protesters gathered outside both Winfield House and Blenhein Palace late Thursday, but extensive cordons kept them far from Trump.

Trump arrived at the reception to much pomp and ceremony, with the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards playing in his honour. The performance included a bagpiper playing Amazing Grace.

Trump may not be able to ignore the presence of protesters entirely. She's planning to attend anti-Trump protests.

On Friday, Mrs May and Mr Trump will go to watch a joint counter-terrorism exercise by British and USA special forces at a military base.

Trump's trip is part of a working visit and not a state visit, an invitation to which was extended to him personally by May just days after his inauguration.

"I have North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, I have the United Kingdom, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have (Vladimir Putin)", Trump said as he set off on his trip to Europe which includes a meeting with the Russian President in the Finnish capital Helsinki.
