"I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him", said Mr Trump.

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

U.S. Ambassador Woody Johnson said Wednesday that citizens are often advised to avoid public demonstrations and that he is not upset by the decision to allow the "Trump baby" balloon to be displayed near Parliament.

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the U.S. and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", the British leader said.

At the end of the ceremony, the military band played a rendition of "Amazing Grace" with a bagpipe solo.

Trump may not be able to ignore the presence of protesters entirely.

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. "Be aware of your surroundings (and) exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent", it added.

The president is then set to take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before heading to Scotland and the rolling green landscape of his golf course.

Trump had earlier shrugged off the organised demonstrations, which on Friday will include a giant baby-shaped balloon bearing Trump's features and have required police to be mobilised from across the country.

The Trumps trip to the United Kingdom is not an official state visit, however, tomorrow the couple will visit the Sandhurst military academy and hold talks at May's country house, Chequers.

Gorgeous said that they have worked closely with the Metropolitan Police and other march organisers - along with the people behind London's planned LGBTQ+ Community Centre, which are providing stewards - to co-ordinate the day.

The US President has been a strong backer of Brexit and invited former Ukip leader Nigel Farage to help him campaign to get into the White House in 2016. Melania Trump has heard about the plans and isn't excited about her husband's presidency being see as a 'joke'.

"I think that's why Brexit happened", he said, noting that Britain was "a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations".

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

"He's fundamentally damaging the culture, the discourse, the rules, the laws", said Calah Singleton, a 28-year-old writer who turned out in London.

He again postponed his visit in January this year after remarking that the relocation of the United States embassy in London was a "bad deal" made by President Obama, and that he was not interested in cutting the ribbon at the opening.

The Trumps will have left town the night before for Scotland, where the President owns two golf properties, Trump Turnberry and Trump Aberdeen.

And in an apparent plea to the president to remember his allies when he meets Vladimir Putin on Monday, Mrs May noted that Britain and America work closely on security "whether through targeting Daesh terrorists or standing up to Russian aggression".
