U.S. President Donald Trump waves from Air Force One as he arrives in Great Falls, Montana, U.S., July 5, 2018.

An initial trip was planned in February, but Trump publicly scrapped it before it was formally announced, citing a "bad" deal the USA received when selling the building that hosted their old embassy.

The Mayor of Sheffield, Magid Magid, declared Trump banned from the city earlier this week, calling him "a wasteman".

Trump is steering clear of the mass protests in central London that will mark his first visit to Britain as president on July 12 and 13. The itinerary still oozes with ceremony - all cleverly taking place at a discreet distance from the mob.

Later, Trump will travel to Scotland to prepare for his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin slated for July 16 in Finland.

British officials are anxious about what will transpire, especially following uneven conversations between May and Trump, who has expressed frustration about likely protests.

May's office, which has promised as much as 5 million pounds ($6.6 million) to cover policing for the Scottish leg of the trip, described it as "a private element of the official visit".

They have given him a light schedule, with plenty of "executive time", and have looked for perks to present.

"Trump has gone to France, Japan, all across the Middle East. We're looking forward to making sure the president has a chance to see and experience the United Kingdom beyond London and the south-east".

On his arrival Thursday, the president will be taken to Blenheim Palace, the 300-year-old mansion where World War II leader Winston Churchill was born.

However, Damien Smyth, the landlord of the Jameson pub in Hammersmith, west London, will host a welcome party - where guests will be treated to a barbecue and Trump-themed cocktails - and display a banner bearing the venue's temporary name, the Trump Arms.

Johnson told a private audience last month that he thought Trump might do a better job of negotiating Britain's exit from the European Union than May has done. "He ll get it done fast because I know it s a major priority for him", United States ambassador Woody Johnson said in a phone briefing.

Winfield House boasts one of the largest gardens in London.

Sixty-three miles from London, Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire has been deliberately chosen to impress Trump.

Leo Murray, who came up with the idea for Trump Baby and attracted £22,000 in crowdfunding - as well as 10,000 signatures on a petition asking for permission to fly the blimp over London - told BBC News that Trump "really seems to hate it when people make fun of him".

Johnson said Trump was "aware" of the planned protest, which will also feature a six-metre (19-foot) high balloon showing the president wearing a nappy. "The president is simply trying to get as impactful a trip as he can get in a 24-hour period".

On Friday morning, Trump and May will visit an as-yet unnamed defence site connected to joint UK-US military training. "What does this man have to do to have the invitation that the prime minister has extended revoked?" The Queen, who regards Windsor as a home and recently hosted her grandson's wedding there, will likely be more relaxed than at her London residence at Buckingham Palace.

Later on Friday, Trump and his entourage depart for Scotland and golf. He praised the relationship between the two nations and said it was "as strong now as it has ever been".
