On Friday morning (July 13), Trump and May will visit a defence site to witness a demonstration of the UK's military capabilities and integrated UK-US military training.

Meanwhile, as reported by the Inquisitr, efforts are underway in the U.K.to have Green Day's 2004 song "American Idiot" to the #1 position on the charts, in protest of Trump's visit.

An initial trip was planned in February, but Trump publicly scrapped it before it was formally announced, citing a "bad" deal the US received when selling the building that hosted their old embassy. White House officials, however, pointed out that he was a voracious watcher of television and would be...

Asked whether Chequers had been chosen to avoid planned protests in London, the spokeswoman said this was not the case and the venue was better for "more informal meetings".

The Trump administration has committees "from every department" dedicated to figuring out how to put together a U.S. -UK trade deal "really rapidly and efficiently" following Britain's exit from the European Union, Ambassador Robert "Woody" Johnson said in a conference call.

The Royal Regiment of Scotland - homeland of the president's mother - will pipe him out at the end of the dinner.

Protesters are planning to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby during his visit after Khan approved a request for its use.

Donald Trump is going to land in England on Thursday 12 July, marking his first official appearance in the United Kingdom as a presidential head.

Later on Friday, Trump and his wife will travel to Windsor Castle to meet Queen Elizabeth.

He and the First Lady will travel to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, the spectacular 18th-century birthplace of Mr Trump's hero Winston Churchill, for a formal dinner with business leaders hosted by Mrs May. While an honor, it is not the state dinner at Buckingham Palace that Trump could have expected when May triumphantly announced a state visit soon after he was inaugurated.

"Trump's political values represent everything that we are not", he told AFP. "He said he would love to do a bilateral trade deal".

"I don't think we should roll out the red carpet for somebody that holds such abhorrent views".
