President Donald Trump landed in London after leaving a 2-day summit in Brussels where he claimed victory on defense spending.

But it is unlikely the Trumps even saw them.

He told press they would have to wait and see if he recognised Russia's annexation of the territory from Ukraine, but he also signed up, one day earlier, to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation declaration on non-recognition of Russia's "illegal" move.

Trump split off from his wife to instead walk at a clip with Prime Minister May.

The Trumps are joining Prime Minister May and other British business leaders at the black-tie dinner at the palace to kick off their visit to Britain.

Mr Trump's intervention comes at the end of a tumultuous few days for Ms May.

"It's a disastrous and divisive time, and Trump is very much part of that", he said. "I'm very strong on immigration". But on Thursday they said they welcomed the plan and would study it closely.

Trump also refrained from openly endorsing U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May's leadership but praised the former foreign secretary Boris Johnson, who resigned Monday in protest at the Brexit deal May presented to the cabinet over the weekend for being "weak".

As Trump is expected to discuss a possible post-Brexit trade deal and other worldwide issues with May, organizers of Friday's demonstrations say there is no shortage of issues that will inspire mass numbers of people to attend. "We have come to an agreement which absolutely delivers what people voted for", she said in a statement.

"I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly".




On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the US ambassador's residence where Trump was staying on the outskirts of London, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected on Friday.

Winfield House is the only place where Trump will spend time in central London, where demonstrators are expected to gather in their tens of thousands for a march on Friday afternoon, hours after a giant "Trump baby" balloon is flown near the UK Parliament in an eye-catching stunt.

Ian Blackford, the Scottish National Party's leader in the Westminster parliament, said he regretted that May's government would roll out the red carpet for Trump.

Lead guitarist Geoff Sprinks said: "We will not be anywhere near where he's going to be, it would be lovely to have played at one of the protests".

Mr Trump flew into Stansted before being taken by military helicopter escort to the Ambassador's residence Winfield House in Regents Park where he stay the night before going to the dinner.

Trump confidant Chris Ruddy believes the President, who is due to fly into the United Kingdom today, will not react how people think he will to the balloon.

Trump is due to leave Britain on Sunday for talks in Helsinki the following day with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose government stands accused by May's of unleashing a lethal nerve agent in the city of Salisbury.

Khan said a year ago that Trump's trip to the United Kingdom should be cancelled after the president retweeted videos from a leader of an ultranationalist British party that claims to show Muslims engaging in violent acts.

The trio will be having tea at Windsor Castle, a meeting that Buckingham Palace described in a press release as a "working visit".
