Trump feels ‘unwelcome’ in London, cites blimp

Inflatable Donald Trump

Inflatable Donald Trump

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who signed off on the so-called "Trump Baby" blimp, defended the decision Thursday, arguing the protests were not anti-American.

The demonstrations were in stark contrast to Trump's assertion to the press that the British "agree with me on immigration" and mirrored those in Brussels ahead of Trump's arrival there on Tuesday to meet with other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders. Prior to knowing the president would be arriving in Scotland, Sturgeon criticised [paywall] the United Kingdom government for inviting Trump and offering "the red carpet" treatment.

US President Donald Trump is expected to adopt a softer tone than the one he set earlier this week at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit when he takes tea with Britain's Queen Elizabeth II.

Trump even appeared to hold Khan personally responsible for immigration in Europe, in comments that were particularly inflammatory.

Both Leonard and Harvie believe the Scottish government should rule out the use of the public airport for Trump's visit. "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism", Trump continued.

Speaking to The Sun, Trump said: 'Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place.

Trump was greeted at the palace by May, whose government has been rocked by resignations from ongoing tumult over Brexit.

As they stood in front of Blenheim, Trump appeared delighted by the rows of British Army guards wearing formal black bearskin hats and the military band that marched around the Grand Court. Trump attended the summit, where he provoked a crisis session to force allies to raise their defense spending.

Then, in a head-snapping pivot at the end, he declared the alliance a "fine-tuned machine" that had acceded to his demands to speed up increases in military spending to relieve pressure on the USA budget.

Trump claimed member nations had agreed to boost their defense budgets significantly and reaffirmed - after days of griping that the US was being taken advantage of by its allies - that the USA remains faithful to the accord.

Neither Trump nor North Atlantic Treaty Organisation offered specifics on what Trump said he had achieved.

"But instead the Tories are rewarding President Trump with a red carpet welcome". "It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024".
