US President Donald Trump has landed in the UK, ahead of meetings with the British Prime Minister and the Queen, to thousands of protesters.
They’ve lined the streets and sent an inflatable look-a-like baby into the sky to welcome the US President.
His arrival comes just weeks after he blasted the UK for their weak stance on Brexit.
Costs for policing the mass protests against Donald Trump will reach £5 million, with 100,000 anti-Trump demonstrators expected tomorrow. @NickFerrariLBC asks: Are protesters wasting police resources? pic.twitter.com/qnpyMQKkcm

It’s been a contentious few weeks for the US President who attacked allies at a NATO summit to raise their defence spending.
The British Prime Minister Theresa May has welcomed the visit saying she’s looking forward to creating trade partnerships between the two nations.
“To have the United States at our side was, to me, the greatest joy,” May quoted Churchill as saying.
“Now, for the benefit of all our people, let us work together to build a more prosperous future.”
The move to create a partnership between the two countries comes as they both shut down traditional forms of trade.
The UK is careering towards Brexit and the US has implemented strong tariffs under trade.
However, President Trump has told a UK paper that if May’s Government is soft on Brexit he’ll rescind the trade offer.
