Donald Trump: US president meets Theresa May at Blenheim Palace
July 12, 2018 4:03 pm
US President Donald Trump has been welcomed to Blenheim Palace by Theresa May, on the first day of his UK visit.
The black-tie dinner, with 150 invited guests, is expected to focus on post-Brexit trade, and comes days after Mr Trump said the UK was in “turmoil”.
He and First Lady Melania Trump arrived in the UK on Thursday afternoon.
Protesters have gathered outside the US ambassador’s residence in London, where the Trumps are staying tonight, and near Blenheim Palace.
Extra security is in place to police the protests, but Mr Trump has said that Britons “like me a lot” and that he feels “fine” about any such protests.
