U.S. President Donald Trump said a free trade deal with Britain might be impossible if it went ahead with Prime Minister Theresa May's proposals for post-Brexit ties with the European Union, in a damaging intervention set to further criticism of her plans. Her Majesty will greet the pair at the dais in the Quadrangle of the Castle and a Guard of Honour, formed of the Coldstream Guards, will gather to give a royal salute and play the US National Anthem in honour of the pair.

Shrugging off the plans for mass protests, which on Friday will include a giant baby-shaped blimp bearing Trump's features, he said in Brussels: "They like me a lot in the UK. I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", he said.

I am just saying I think he would be a great Prime Minister.

"I think I probably can", he said.

President Donald Trump arrived in London Thursday afternoon, where he will attend a state dinner and meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May - after making his mark on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium.

"But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for".

"I was very saddened to see he was leaving government and I hope he goes back in at some point", Trump said.

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

A YouGov/ITV Tonight poll released on Thursday found there is "broad support" for Trump among Britons. Trump will be using London as a base during his visit, Johnson added.

The poll conducted this week said 63% found Trump racist, and 74% said he was sexist.
