The U.S. embassy has also responded in kind, issuing a warning to American citizens to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution" during Trump's visit.

Amid reports that the government is working to bring a major police presence to the demonstrations, Amnesty International warned British authorities against attempting to stamp out freedom of expression in an effort to "appease their visitors". "But I believe the people in the UK, Scotland, Ireland - as you know I have property in Ireland, I have property all over - I think that those people, they like me a lot and they agree with me on immigration".

Thousands are expected to protest across the capital, heavily led by Owen Jones" "Stop Trump' rally, which will go ahead on Friday July 13.

Permission has already been granted for the 20ft balloon caricature to be flown over central London on Friday as Donald Trump visits the UK.

Trump had been reacting to recent fractions within the Cabinet over Brexit.

"A trade deal that's about weaker regulations on food and things we don't want, chlorinated chicken and beef, he wants to weaken our environmental standards as much as he's ripping up those same standards in the United States".

It has been dubbed Storm Trump and the country is braced for a U.S. presidential visit that has split opinion like never before.

Back in 2015, Trump also tweeted an article from the National Review claiming that more Muslims living in the United Kingdom join ISIS than the British Army.

The state visit was never actually scheduled - there has been fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning among other things that Mr. Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the US ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park, rather than at Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.

She said: "There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the United States and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead".

After the visit, Trump will decamp to Finland for a one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16.

The organisers behind the blimp however, said they were just "poking fun" and "hope Trump sees it".

Trump watchers have kept a close eye on the first couple's public displays of affection, especially after the first lady was caught on camera clearly swatting away her husband's hand during a trip to Tel Aviv, Israel in May of past year.

On Friday, May and Trump will visit a defense site then travel to the prime minister's Chequers country residence for talks followed by a press conference.

May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump there, attended by senior ministers and about 100 business leaders, including from Blackstone group, Blackrock, Diageo, McLaren and Arup.

Later in the day, the President will head to Windsor Castle, where he will have a tea with the Queen.

The two leaders are also expected to discuss Russia, Brexit and Middle East.

The blimp will then be used at a protest planned in Scotland, his mother's homeland, when Trump goes there for the weekend.
