Trump arrived at the reception to much pomp and ceremony, with the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards playing in his honour.

"Give us your tired and your oppressed and we'll divide you from your children", he said mockingly of Mr. Trump's policies.

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".

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

"Trump's entire political argument revolves and relies around a division between people, and a blame culture".

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

Mr. Trump, however, suggested before leaving a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Thursday to head for London, that Britons in general agree with his policies, in particular his tough stance on immigration.

"The people voted to break it up, so I imagine that's what they'll do".

"I partially won an election because of immigration", he said, also pointing to Italy's recent vote, in which Giuseppe Conte took government after campaigning on a populist anti-immigration platform. "I think that's why they voted for Brexit".

The couple then flew by helicopter to the U.S. ambassador's residence, Winfield House, where the Beatles' song We Can Work It Out was playing in the garden on their arrival.

A giant balloon depicting Donald Trump as an angry baby wearing a nappy will not be allowed to fly over his Scottish golf resort while he is staying there, police have said. "I don't think they were expecting even to see the queen".

Tonight he will attend a gala dinner with USA and United Kingdom business leaders at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire - the ancestral seat of Sir Winston Churchill.

"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.

Gardner, who works with refugees as part of her doctoral research at the London School of Economics, said Trump's speeches about refugees and immigrants are "a very risky line of rhetoric to be normalized".

"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the United States and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", May said ahead of the visit.

For former Remainers, it's nuts to think that trade deals with non-EU countries can ever make up for what might be lost.
