He believes Mr Trump's visit shows his respect for the United Kingdom, as his political career would get more of a boost from staying at home and campaigning in America.

Here is what the Donald has planned in his jaunt to Britain...

The divisive American leader, arriving after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, will be largely away from London during a tour expected to bring at least tens of thousands of people onto British streets.

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

They have knives and instead there's blood all over the floors of this hospital", Trump said. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and the official tasked with overseeing the country's exit from the European Union both resigned earlier this week.

Donald Trump's July visit to the UK will be his first as president of the United States.

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

"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".

At the time, Khan said he has more important things to do than respond to Trump's tweet, which he described as ill-informed and out-of-context. A YouGov poll on Wednesday showed 77 percent of Britons had an unfavourable opinion of the president and just 50 percent thought his visit should go ahead.

On Brexit negotiations: Not convinced by the UK's handling of the talks, Trump said he would take a "tougher" approach with Brussels. NHS may have challenges but I'm proud to be from the country that invented universal coverage - where all get care no matter the size of their bank balance.

The protesters will gather here ahead of the visit by President Trump. "Are you honestly saying that the right to protest, the right to assemble, the right to free speech is limited by the ridicule it might cause to someone else?"

Opponents to the controversial U.S. leader have threatened mass protests but Mr Trump is expected to avoid areas such as central London where demonstrators are likely to gather.

But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Mr. Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to the US leader's presence.

Evie, who's 26, is also an American living in the UK.

Once in the UK, Trump and the First Lady will travel to the magnificent Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire for a black tie dinner with around 100 leading business figures and UK politicians.

Russia, Brexit and the Middle East are set to top the agenda.

The coalition has pledged multiple demonstrations along every step of his planned itinerary, which will include meeting Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle on Friday.
