Donald Trump refers to Ireland as a part of the UK

The shadow policing minister, Labour MP Louise Haigh, said, "It has emerged that officers being accommodated in Essex are sleeping on cots in squash courts, 100 female officers with four toilets between them, likely to be sleeping on mats tonight, 300 male officers with five toilets between them".

USA president Donald Trump has said a future bilateral trade deal with the United Kingdom is unlikely should Britain leave the European Union under terms only proposed on Thursday by prime minister Theresa May. "I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", he said.

Trump's wife is also concerned about how the British people will be viewing her and her husband during the trip.

He told The Sun Mrs May's plan would affect trade "unfortunately in a negative way".

He said: "We have enough difficulty with the European Union".

He added: "If the EU do not offer the United States a better deal on trade, the United States will do something about European cars being imported at a very low tariff".

After the dinner, the Trumps will travel to the USA ambassador's official residence, Winfield House in London's Regent's Park, where they will spend the night.

In an impromptu press conference this morning, Trump said he had "told people he would be very unhappy if they did not up their commitments very substantially".

While Mr Johnson may now be a backbencher, Mr Trump said he hoped he would still see the former foreign minister - another blow to the fragile position of Mrs May. "I just want the people to be happy".

Thailand's junta chief told reporters on Tuesday that the group had been given a "minor tranquiliser" to help calm their nerves. That ultimately proved not to be an option when oxygen levels within the tunnels dropped to risky levels.

"Trump baby", as the balloon is known, will be flown high over Parliament Square in London, but Mr. Trump is spending the day miles away from the center of the British capital - and the protesters - in meetings with Prime Minster Theresa May and then later with Queen Elizabeth II.

"I think he's got what it takes, and I think he's got the right attitude to be a great prime minister". But I told her how to do it. "I am very strong on immigration".

Mr Trump has confirmed at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation press conference earlier today that he will be spending the weekend playing golf at his Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire, which he bought in 2014.

In Windsor, Berkshire, President Trump will receive the honour of an audience with the Queen and other members of the Royal Family.

Some carried placards saying Special Relationship?

Trump has been quick to criticize British society, telling a National Rifle Association convention in May that the British didn't have guns but had so much knife crime that one hospital was like a military war zone with its floors awash with blood, a false statement quickly rebutted by British physicians and politicians. Two senior ministers resigned in protest this week at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves the bloc next March.

They reportedly dined on Scottish salmon followed by beef, then strawberries and clotted cream ice cream - traditional British fare created to impress. The music will have an American flavor, with the "Liberty Fanfare" and the "National Emblem" chosen alongside "Amazing Grace".

The president is expected to avoid areas where major demonstrations are planned in protest at his visit.

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence.
