A sign attached to the fence reads: "No access - do not enter".

His arrival in Scotland will spark a major security operation, but police have insisted they want to strike a balance between "protection and public safety and the public's right to peacefully protest". Any contravention, it warns, "could result in force being used against you, your arrest and/or prosecution".

Dozens of demonstrations are planned throughout the country with the largest expected to take place in central London on Friday.

Trump also criticised May in a press conference in Brussels following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit there just before flying to London, casting doubt on whether she will deliver on British voters' intentions when they backed leaving the European Union in a 2016 referendum.

"Yes, there might be protests", he said.

US PRESIDENT Donald Trump has landed on Air Force One at Stansted Airport for his first official United Kingdom visit since his election - just hours after declaring himself a "very stable genius" whom Britons "like a lot". Trump and Putin, who have never met for an official summit, will hold three sessions before the USA president returns to Washington, D.C., early Tuesday. The first lady wore a bodycon beige dress, cinched with an orange skinny belt, accessorized with beige stilettos.

Protesters against the visit of US President Donald Trump gather with placards at a barrier set up to block access to the US ambassador's residence Winfield House in Regents Park in London.

"Presidents have been trying unsuccessfully for years to get Germany and other rich NATO Nations to pay more toward their protection from Russian Federation", one tweet said.

The US President described the former foreign secretary as "a very talented guy".

The poll is "noticeably higher than in previous YouGov polls that asked about a state rather than a working visit", YouGov wrote in an analysis.

The performance included a bagpiper playing Amazing Grace.

Protesters have been encouraged to bring pots, drums and vuvuzelas.

Trump had earlier shrugged off the organised demonstrations, which on Friday will include a giant baby-shaped balloon bearing Trump's features and have required police to be mobilised from across the country.

At the time, London Mayor Sadiq Khan released a statement saying, "Many Londoners have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here while he is pursuing such a divisive agenda". As of Thursday morning, more than 1,900 people had contributed to a crowdfunding campaign for the balloon, raising more than £30,000 (nearly $40,000). "I think they agree with me on immigration", he said, also reminding reporters that his mother was from Scotland, which he plans to visit after his official meetings in England.

As Trump is expected to discuss a possible post-Brexit trade deal and other worldwide issues with May, organizers of Friday's demonstrations say there is no shortage of issues that will inspire mass numbers of people to attend.

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

Trump has always been a Brexit supporter and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after Brexit, something heralded by eurosceptics as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

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

But, he added: "Whether he sees it, whether he reacts to it, we don't really care".

Command suites and coordinating groups based in Lambeth, south London, will involve a wide range of people including from all the emergency services, the military, Foreign Office and Home Office, plus officials who run transport services in London and beyond.

Potentially tens of thousands are expected to march to a rally in Trafalgar Square on Friday afternoon, organized by the "Stop Trump Coalition".

Despite not being an official state visit, the Government is desperate to ensure the USA leader feels he is being treated with the appropriate level of pomp and ceremony.

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