More protests planned as Donald Trump arrives in Scotland

More protests planned as Donald Trump arrives in Scotland

Trump's visit to Britain followed two days of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium, where the USA president shook up the conference with rhetoric about other members failing to meet fiscal defense requirements, the possibility that he could end the United States' 70-year membership in the alliance and Germany being "captive" to Russian energy.

Robert Keen, general director of the British International Freight Association (BIFA) representing United Kingdom -based forwarders, said the proposals in which the United Kingdom would apply European Union tariffs to European Union goods passing through the United Kingdom, "look complex and untested".

Trump then heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

The verbal attack on Mr Khan came after he refused to block a plan to fly a giant inflatable "Trump baby" near Parliament to coincide with mass protests surrounding the president's visit.

Trump, a golf enthusiast who owns numerous courses around the world, has reportedly played more than 100 rounds since he took office in January 2017, costing taxpayers an estimated $69 million.

Arriving straight from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit that was predictably contentious, the United States president has been greeted with massive protests on his first trip to London since taking office.

And he warned that Britain's trade relationship with the US could be in jeopardy if May follows through with her "soft" Brexit blueprint.

The Daily Telegraph stays with Brexit but tries to turn the attention back on the prime minister, with "Revealed: advice from Trump that May ignored".

Final Four: Which two will reach the Wimbledon title match?
The game dragged on for a total of six hours and 36 minutes, with the final set alone taking two hours and 54 minutes. It was the second-longest match in Wimbledon history and longest one-day match in Wimbledon history.

Eric Trump called the report "fake news", but Dodson said he presented the president's son's remarks accurately. Trump has since attended the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and plans to meet one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16. "He never enters into adult discussion", said Paul Fonseca, 23. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree; she didn't listen to me".

And as May struggles to hold her own government together, with the never-ending arguments about Brexit negotiations threatening to tear her Conservative party apart.

Earlier, Mr Trump said he and Mrs May had spoken for an hour-and-a-half at the black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, which he attended with his wife Melania.

Ben Stewart, from the campaign group, said: "Theresa May should not have dignified Trump with a visit to the UK".

Melania Trump visited veterans on Friday at London's Royal Hospital Chelsea where she also met local school children, accompanied by May's husband Philip.

In his Sun interview, Trump accused May of violating British voters' wishes with the plan and, for good measure, praised Johnson as an alternative prime minister.

"And unfortunately there was a story that was done, which was generally fine, but it didn't put in what I said about the prime minister, and I said tremendous things".

Prime Minister May said they had discussed plans for an "ambitious" trade agreement.
