Dozens of protests have been organised across the country as organisers seek to mount a "carnival of resistance".

Demonstrators will assemble outside the BBC building in Portland Place at 2pm on Friday and march to Trafalgar Square for a rally.

Melania Trump pulled out all the stops for her first night in the UK.

Following the departure of senior figures, including foreign minister Boris Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis, the political atmosphere is febrile.

Some critics of Mr Trump are calling for Mrs May to make a similar speech to that of Hugh Grant's PM in the press conference with Billy Bob Thornton's president, as an act of defiance.

Malone had been Thomas' coach during the 2013-14 season in Sacramento, two teams removed from the guard's arrival in Boston. But if Thomas shoots sub-40% from the field again and struggles to stay healthy, it may put his future up in the air.

That won't help him escape protesters who have scheduled demonstrations outside the golf course, as well as George Square in Glasgow and near the USA consulate in Edinburgh.

Mr Trump said he thought Britons "like me a lot".

Mr Trump arrives Thursday afternoon following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and largely avoids the capital's centre and the protesters.

The president, who briefly held May's hand as they walked up the stairs to the palace in a repeat of her visit to White House a year ago, attended the dinner hosted by the British prime minister for over 100 guests, including business leaders from across different sectors. From there his meetings with Mrs May will be at her country home, Chequers, which offers a "more informal setting", according to a Downing Street spokesman.

People wait to see the arrival of US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Winfield House in London on July 12, 2018.

The Twitter account, is encouraging fans to download and stream the song ahead of 12 July to ensure it is number one on the day. The move was speculated to have been decided in order to avoid planned protests in the area.

Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby.

Trump, who arrived on Thursday, said he would avoid London as much as possible to avoid the protests.

USA ambassador Woody Johnson insisted the balloon was not a fair representation of British views.

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

Good Morning Britain host Piers Morgan challenged Mr Khan over the decision, suggesting the mayor had approved of the blimp due to personal animosity towards the US President, the Daily Mail reports. When Trump canceled his plans a few weeks before the big day, some - like London Mayor Sadiq Khan - speculated that the expected opposition scared off Trump and was happy about it. "We are cracking down right now on the European Union because they have not treated the United States fairly on trading". "The mayor of London should be ashamed of himself".

The online dictionary's Twitter account even went as far as to give the link for the online definition of the word "self-made". And, Dictionary.com made a decision to drop the definition of "self-made" at an expertly shady moment.

May was the first foreign leader to visit Trump at the White House in 2017 and invited him to visit her country in an attempt to solidify the decades-long "special relationship" between the United Kingdom and the U.S. The balloon, made by protesters, is set to fly this weekend during his stay in London and afterwards will be transported overnight to Scotland to fly at his Turnberry golf estate on Saturday, when he is scheduled to play there.
