On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the USA ambassador's residence where Trump was staying, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected on Friday.

"But the other people who will be saying this is really good news for us are the "remainers" in the European Union, because when the United Kingdom delegation goes to Brussels next week to sell the idea that it's going to be really hard for the EU to resist the temptation to say to them 'look, you think dealing with us is hard, how do you feel about dealing with him?'"

Mr Trump and his wife Melania flew from London by Marine One helicopter and swept into the palace courtyard in the armoured presidential limousine nicknamed The Beast.

Trump also set a hard line on the country's ongoing "Brexit" negotiations, telling the tabloid that he advised Prime Minister May against the "soft" blueprint she recently presented to alleviate economic fallout as the country separates from the European Union.

"I would say Brexit is Brexit", he added.

There were also demonstrations close to Winfield House, the United States ambassador's residence near Regents Park where the president and first lady Melania Trump will spend the night.

"No, if they do that, I would say that that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States".

According to The Sun, Trump said May has ignored the advice he gave her on Brexit, and he believes that she has gone "the opposite way", leading to "very unfortunate results".

British Prime Minister Theresa May will publish details Thursday of her long-awaited Brexit plan to restart talks with the European Union, after facing down a revolt by eurosceptic ministers that could still unseat her.

Trump claimed member nations had agreed to boost their defense budgets significantly and reaffirmed - after days of griping that the USA was being taken advantage of by its allies - that the U.S. remains faithful to the accord.

In another setback, however, Trump also praised the plan's chief critic, Brexiteer Boris Johnson, saying he was "a very talented guy".

Tory chaos: divisions over Brexit continue in wake of resignations
Writing in the Daily Telegraph she said Mrs May's plan was "catastrophically bad" and a "disaster for the Conservative Party". Fallon warned Conservative rebels that a challenge to May's leadership is "the last thing we need".

But for many British diplomats, Brexit marks the collapse of a 70-year strategy of trying to balance European integration with a US alliance based on blood, trade and intelligence sharing.

"I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London", Trump said, referring to a 20-foot "Trump Baby" blimp that protesters are expected to fly over Parliament Square Friday.

Trump had no qualms about blasting May's plan for how the UK should leave the European Union, and he even took it a step further by appearing to threaten US-UK trade deals based on her Brexit approach.

His comments came at the end of a tumultuous few days for May, during which two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves the bloc next March.

"But instead the Tories are rewarding President Trump with a red carpet welcome".

The interview posted online as Prime Minister May welcomed President Trump and the first lady at Blenheim Palace for a lavish gala dinner.

While the many thousands are expected to line the streets and protest against Trump, politicians have become involved too. "With a lot of resignations", Trump told a news conference at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Trump then heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

And then there's the royal moment that the world will be watching on Friday: the moment that Trump meets the Queen.

The Trumps were also met by protesters, who had earlier gathered outside Winfield House in central London, the home of the USA ambassador where the American guests are staying overnight, as well as outside Blenheim Palace. Trump's late mother hailed from Scotland, and he owns two luxury golf courses there.
