Meanwhile, Theresa May's government is nervously anticipating disruption from the guest himself.

Following the departure of senior figures, including foreign minister Boris Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis, the political atmosphere is febrile.

Trump watchers have kept a close eye on the first couple's public displays of affection, especially after the first lady was caught on camera clearly swatting away her husband's hand during a trip to Tel Aviv, Israel in May of past year.

And in a statement, Mrs May spoke about the UK-US "special relationship". We are living in very volatile times and so I hope nothing gets out of hand and I hope people can act civilly. "If a balloon flying over London makes people laugh, I think that's absolutely worth it", she says.

During this visit, Mr Trump will go to Oxfordshire for a lavish black-tie dinner.

The Stop Trump Coalition accused the president of being "too scared to face protestors".

A giant six-metre-high blimp of Trump depicted as an orange baby in nappies is also expected to fly over the capital.

Mr Trump will instead be ensconced at Windsor Castle, west of London on Friday when a blimp tethered next to the Houses of Parliament.

U.S. ambassador Woody Johnson insisted the balloon was not a fair representation of British views.

"I just want the people to be happy".

The US president landed on Air Force One at Stansted Airport at the start of a four-day trip that is expected to leave taxpayers with a police and security bill of up to £10 million as swathes of protesters take to the streets.

Although he will visit the United States ambassador's residence, he is largely avoiding central London, where the largest protests are expected Friday.

Thousands of people are expected to protest against the president's visit across the UK. The issue is 'Do they have freedom to protest, freedom to assemble and should they be allowed to do so?

Mr Morgan, the forthright journalist and broadcaster, hit back and questioned why the London mayor had not been so vocal over the visit of controversial Turkish President Recep Erdogan.

US President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom will be an opportunity to boost trade links and strengthen cooperation on security, Theresa May has said.

"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 two nations, we are safer, more prosperous and more creative when we work together and I am looking forward to this week's important discussions".
