Donald Trump in Britain: President lands as protests begin

Presenter

Mr Trump described the UK as “a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations.” But despite all the mass protests planned for his visit he declared “people like me there.” We analyse his visit, trade, the special relationship and witness the pomp and ceremony.

Welcome to Blenheim Palace where President Trump will touch down for a black tie dinner hosted by Theresa May. Earlier Mr Trump described the UK as “a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations.”

But despite all the mass protests planned for his visit – the first of which are currently taking place outside Winfield House, where the President spent the afternoon – he declared “people like me there.”

We analyse his visit, trade, the special relationship and witness the pomp and ceremony.

Mr Trump flew to Britain after a somewhat chaotic 28 hours at the NATO summit in Brussels, where he characteristically claimed victory over his demand for the allies to increase their defence spending.
