Donald Trump & Wife Arrive For Historic UK Visit

Donald Trump has touched down in the UK for his historic first visit amid huge nationwide protests and a massive 10,000-strong police protection ring.

The US President was met at Stansted Airport by International Trade Secretary Liam Fox before travelling by helicopter to Winfield House - the US Ambassador's grand residence in London.

He and First Lady Melania Trump held hands as they walked down steps provided by private firm Harrods Aviation and through a military guard.

Air Force One landed more than an hour late after the President delayed the start of his four-day visit with a rambling impromptu press conference where he boasted Brits "like me a lot".

The visit, which was downgraded from a state visit to a "working" trip, will see the couple visit Winfield House before departing for Blenheim Palace today.

The president and his wife Melania will be guests of honour at a dinner for around 100 guests hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May in the spectacular setting of Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

The event will begin with a military ceremony in the Great Court of the Palace, where the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards will play the Liberty Fanfare, Amazing Grace, and the National Emblem.
