The embassy also warned Americans, however, to "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

The decision to approve the flying of a giant blimp depicting Donald Trump as an angry, orange baby near Parliament has been defended by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

Morgan said it was "utterly ironic and weird" that there could be bigger protests around Mr Trump's visit than during trips to the United Kingdom by the leaders of countries with questionable human rights records including Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

On Friday evening, Trump and the First Lady whisk up to Scotland for a weekend of golf and relaxation - and more protests outside his resort.

Norfolk members of Together Against Trump are planning to join protests in London and have organised a coach to get people to the capital.

Mr Trump is due to land this afternoon before attending a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace in his honour, where protesters will gather at the gates.

"He's been very, very nice to me, very supportive", he said.

The next stop on the president's tour of England is a helicopter journey to Winfield House, which is the American ambassador's residence located in Regents Park.

Then on Monday, he will be off to Helsinki to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump angered May and many Britons by tweeting inflammatory and unverified videos made by Britain First, an anti-Muslim group whose leaders have been convicted of hate crimes, and by characterizing parts of London and other cities as no-go areas because of a purported Muslim-related crime wave.
