Donald Trump refers to Ireland as a part of the UK

TRUMP-QUEEN

Many Britons who awoke to the visiting U.S. President Donald Trump's fusillade against the country, its prime minister's European Union exit strategy, its immigration policy and personal attacks on London's mayor Sadiq Khan - effectively blaming him directly for terror attacks in the capital city - may feel they are in a similar situation as they roll out the red carpet to a world leader seemingly intent on denigrating their nation.

He is taking helicopters to his various destinations. The U.S. president is expected to attend a formal dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire with the business leaders, along with the senior members of the cabinet.

Trump's comments dominated the news agenda in Britain on the first full day of his visit, and drew criticism from many politicians.

Protesters accompanied the "Trump baby" balloon, with signs railing against Trump's policies on topics including immigration, race relations, women and climate change.

On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the USA ambassador's residence in London, where Trump was staying, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected Friday. But he has still been met with plenty of pomp and ceremony, and will have high tea with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle later Friday.

Parents opposed to scrapped sex-ed curriculum take matters into own hands
Thompson says she'll announce soon a schedule of parent consultations across the province, on how to implement the revised curriculum.

May and Trump are scheduled to hold talks and a joint news conference on Friday.

Trump, however, is the most unconventional of modern USA presidents and there is some anxiety in Britain about whether he will adhere to protocol.

In a statement ahead of Trump's arrival, she said the visit would focus on trade and strengthening defense and security ties, saying there was no stronger alliance than Britain's "special relationship with the U.S".

Today's protests come just one day after an interview with President Trump was published in the British tabloid publication The Sun in which he referenced the larger-than-life balloon.

Ian Blackford, the Scottish National Party's leader in the Westminster parliament, said he regretted that May's government would roll out the red carpet for Trump.

More help needed in Watford City for storm damage cleanup
He has been staying along with dozens of others at the Watford City Civic Center where the Red Cross has established a shelter. Sanford said the extent of the damage is "devastating and mindboggling, with RVs utterly flattened and destroyed".

"I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me", he said.

Trump said: 'If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal.

The US leader had claimed he doubted a US-UK trade deal would happen because of Theresa May's Brexit plans. On Thursday, Mr. Trump shrugged off the planned protests, telling reporters "they like me a lot in the U.K". He said Boris Johnson, May's now ex-foreign secretary, "would be a great prime minister". "As he said in his interview with The Sun she "is a very good person" and he 'never said anything bad about her.' He thought she was great on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation today and is a really terrific person". That will end after the United Kingdom leaves the bloc in March.

The US president used an interview in the Sun to reignite his feud with Khan, who criticised the US president as "ill-informed" over a tweet following the London Bridge attack in June 2017.

Khan told BBC Radio Friday, "The idea that you can blame (a rise in crime) on immigration from Africa is I think preposterous and we should call him out when he does so".
