Orange Trump blimp to launch in London

Orange Trump blimp to launch in London

US President Donald Trump kept his handshake short and stooped to hear what Queen Elizabeth had to say as the 92-year-old monarch welcomed him to Windsor Castle outside London on Friday.

LONDON - British Prime Minister Theresa May is looking forward to sitting down with Donald Trump to talk him through her Brexit negotiating stance after the U.S. president criticized her plans in an interview, her spokesman said on Friday.

He told The Sun newspaper before his arrival that he was looking forward to the visit, complimenting the queen and marveling at the lack of controversy associated with her over the years.

The meeting comes just one day after Trump arrived in London for his four-day visit. I haven't been there in a long time.

Khan gave protesters permission to fly the 20-foot-tall balloon, depicting Trump as an angry baby in a diaper.

As the Queen and Mr Trump walked across the lawn of the quadrangle to view the soldiers, the monarch appeared to gesture and point several times for the president to move closer to the front line of red-tuniced soldiers.

He wrote on Twitter that although Londoners admire the USA, they "find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance".

The president added: "I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad". "The fact that [the blimp] may cause offense to somebody isn't a good reason to deter the hard-fought rights of freedom of speech and freedom of expression", Khan said.

Mr Trump said he had told Ms May how to do a Brexit deal, but the Prime Minister did not heed his advice.

Trump said it made him feel "unwelcome".

"If you're a guest of hers, she will put you at her ease", Alastair Bruce, a royal expert and ABC News consultant said.

The Queen all smiles as she shakes hands with Donald Trump and wife Melania - even though it looked like the US President broke royal etiquette.

Before the Sun interview was published, Ms May invoked Winston Churchill as she addressed Mr Trump and business leaders at a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, the grand 18th-century country house which was the British World War II leader's birthplace. Trump and May showed no signs of strain in their relationship, however, before cameras during a joint press conference Friday.
