‘Trump Baby’ balloon takes flight as tens of thousands protest in London

‘Trump Baby’ balloon takes flight as tens of thousands protest in London

While Trump's trip was not the full state visit he was originally promised, he was heralded by military bands on his arrival in the country and at Blenheim, and he is scheduled on Friday to have tea with Queen Elizabeth. Protests against his visit and policies were planned at the Ayrshire resort and in Edinburgh today.

An activist group was given permission to fly the blimp over London during Trump's visit, which will reportedly be met with up to 200,000 protestors in the streets.

Throughout the 50-minute press conference Mr Trump repeatedly referred to advice he had given the Prime Minister on how to conduct the Brexit negotiations, saying: "I gave her a suggestion and I think maybe she found it too brutal". Just make sure we can trade together.

I think they agree with me on immigration.

During an interview with The Sun newspaper on Thursday Trump criticized May over her handling of Brexit. I am just saying I think he would be a great Prime Minister.

The US president apologised to Mrs May on Friday over an incendiary interview criticising her premiership, and hailed UK-US relations as the "highest level of special". He also criticised the scale of immigration into Europe, and said he was saddened by protests in London, adding that they made him feel unwelcome. May about how she should negotiate with the European Union but he didn't say what he'd advised.

"You can't walk away but you can do other things".




While it seemed Trump had backtracked on his criticism of the Brexit plan, as the press conference went on he flagged up areas of concerns with the US's current trade with the EU.

A trade deal with the United States is supposed to be the big prize of Brexit, with its potential for largely compensating for the economic loss that would ensue by exiting the European Single Market.

"I have a lot of respect for Boris. My job is actually getting out there and doing it".

But even before Trump arrived in the United Kingdom he attacked May's Brexit plan, saying the country was in "somewhat turmoil" and that meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin next week - her geopolitical enemy - would be easier than meeting her.

LONDON ― An enormous blimp depicting President Donald Trump as a baby throwing a temper tantrum set sail over the city Friday morning. "As he said in his interview with The Sun she "is a very good person" and he "never said anything bad about her", she said.

"I think he has not been hospitable to a government that is very important". His remarks on Brexit came the same day May's government published long-awaited proposals for Britain's relations with the European Union after it leaves the bloc next year.
