Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May at her official country residence, Chequers, on Friday morning.

Ahead of the United States leader's visit, Khan gave permission for a 20-foot-tall "Trump Baby" blimp to be flown above Parliament Square which Trump said made him feel "unwelcome" in London.

It's been a tumultuous few days for May having had two senior ministers resign in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves the bloc next March.

After the president and First Lady Melania Trump arrived at Stansted Airport, Trump said he was "fine" about any protests during his visit.

In that interview, President Trump said he thinks Boris Johnson, the Brexit booster who resigned as May's foreign minister this week, would make a great prime minister.

He said "the deal she is striking is a much different deal than the one the people voted on".

"I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way".

He added: "I would have done it much differently".

Trump had suggested in the interview that the recently departed foreign secretary, Boris Johnson, would make a good prime minister and that the current Brexit framework would prevent a US-UK trade deal.

Prime Minister Theresa May said her plan to keep close economic ties with the European Union once Britain leaves the bloc next March was "principled and pragmatic".

Trump also reignited his feud with London mayor Sadiq Khan, who has repeatedly blamed for terrorism and personally blamed for immigration into the capital, despite the mayor having no control over immigration policy.

"This is what people need to be doing - to come together in their communities to organize and work out how to stand against right-wing populism and xenophobia that we're seeing not just in the USA but in Europe", organizer Kevin Smith told The Associated Press. "When the president speaks about immigration, you will repeatedly hear him put it in the sense of a threat, a security threat specifically, and that's also how he framed it when he was talking about it in Europe". I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister. "I think you are losing your culture".
