Donald Trump’s son arrives in Scotland

Donald Trump’s son arrives in Scotland

LONDON ― President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump touch down in London on Thursday for a working visit, and while his meeting schedule will keep him nearly exclusively outside of the capital, she will be spending some time in town.

Lance Price, who served as former Prime Minister Tony Blair's media adviser, told the Independent that no matter what the American convoy contends, the fact that Donald Trump is avoiding London points to a moral victory for the protesters. I think they agree with me on immigration. "You see what " s going on throughout the world with immigration.

"I think it's amusing". Vince Cable, the leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said, "Most of us don't think he is particularly good judge on Brexit or anything else".

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.

Earlier this week Mr Trump said it was "up to the people" whether Prime Minister Theresa May stayed on after two cabinet ministers resigned within hours over her Brexit policy.

Trump did not call Putin a friend or foe but referred to him as a "competitor".

USA allies played down Trump's suggestion he was responsible for increased defense spending.

Asad Rehman, 51, one of the organizers of a massive protest planned for central London, said that among the motivations behind the protest was to show solidarity with Americans across the Atlantic who also oppose Trump.

As well as in London, protests are expected to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff after Trump arrives here on Thursday.

Mrs May said the United Kingdom visit would be an opportunity to boost trade links and strengthen co-operation on security. These will focus on relations with Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.

In a joint statement, Leonard and Harvie said: "For Donald Trump to travel to Scotland with public assistance and ease when his travel ban has caused outrage and despair around the world would simply not be acceptable". It also requires all members to charge the same tariffs on imports from countries outside the bloc.

Only one person, the digital entrepreneur and philanthropist Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, has publicly refused the invitation.

The two "Beasts" are among and huge motorcade of vehicles flown into Britain on two United States Air Force Boeing C-17 transport planes ahead of Trump's visit.

After spending the night at the United States ambassador's official residence in Regent's Park, London, Mr Trump will join the PM at a military base tomorrow to observe a joint counter-terrorism exercise involving UK and U.S. special forces.

On Friday, Trump will meet May and her newly appointed Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt at the prime minister's countryside retreat, Chequers.

Later, Trump will take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, a home to the royals for 1,000 years, part of a tour created to keep him away from protesters. This part of the visit is being considered private.

Most of the protests will take place that day in central London, the USA officials said, with some occurring the days before and after.

Mr Trump's son Eric has arrived in Scotland for a golfing visit to Trump International Golf Links at Menie, Aberdeenshire, and Trump Turnberry, near Girvan, South Ayrshire.

A number of protests have been organized across the country to coincide with the president's visit.

With Trump at all times will be a White House doctor and one of five rotating military aides who carry the nuclear "football" - equipped with communication tools and a book with prepared war plans.
