Itinerary of U.S. President Trump's visit to Britain

President Trump is scheduled to meet Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

"The presidential visit is an important moment to recognise our close and special relationship and to have good and frank discussions on the key issues".

Instead Donald Trump will be treated to a black-tie dinner at Blenheim Palace, lunch with Theresa May at Chequers, and a meeting with the Queen at Windsor Castle.

The talks at Chequers, which officials said would include relations with Russian Federation and bilateral trade, will be followed by a press conference in the same place.

As busloads of anti-Trump protesters head to London on Friday morning, the US President and May will visit a defense site "to witness a demonstration of the UK's cutting-edge military capabilities and integrated UK-US military training", according to a spokeswoman for May.

When a date for the United Kingdom trip - billed as a "working visit" rather than a state occasion - was finally confirmed last month, it ended a months-long back-and-forth over when Trump would at last pay a call on America's closest ally.

Among the forms of protest: A balloon depicting Mr. Trump as a baby wearing a diaper is expected to be flown over London while he is visiting.

Trump will arrive in Britain on July 12 for a "working visit", a more sober affair than the original plan for a state visit with its customary pomp and pageantry after it drew threats of mass protests.

In a teleconference with the media ahead of Trump's visit to Britain next week, Johnson said Trump "would love to do a bilateral trade deal and he is really ready to step up on that the minute we get the go-ahead to do it".




The Prime Minister's spokesperson said: "We are a free and open democracy and we believe in the right to protest".

"President Trump has locked up 2,000 little children in cages and is refusing to release them unless he is allowed to build a wall", opposition Labour lawmaker Gavin Shuker said to May in parliament last month.

Mr. Trump is expected to confront Mr. Putin on a range of conflict areas, including the annexation of Crimea, wars in Ukraine and Syria, and hacking the 2016 USA presidential election.

Others are holding marches through the city and in Scotland - where President Trump owns golf courses.

Next Friday evening, Mr. Trump will depart for Scotland, where Mr. Johnson said he would spend the weekend preparing for the meeting with Mr. Putin. Trump also decided against a ceremonial visit in January to open the new billion-dollar USA embassy.

Mr Johnson said trade would be high on the agenda for bilateral talks between Mr Trump and Mrs May at Chequers next Friday.

The pub, called The Jameson, will host an event of Trump-themed celebrations on July 14 with American-themed food and drink to welcome the president to the country.

Asked whether Mr. Trump would be playing golf in Scotland, Mr. Johnson said the president's schedule was still being planned.
