Later on Friday, Trump and his wife will travel to Windsor Castle to meet Queen Elizabeth.

In the evening, May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump at the stately home that will be attended by about 100 business leaders from industries including finance, pharmaceuticals, defence and technology.

Then the two leaders will meet again the next day for bilateral talks.

U.S. Ambassador to the U.K. Robert "Woody" Johnson said the president and the prime minister are "on the same page" when it comes to Russia's "malign activities". "We have ad hoc committees from every department - whether it's treasury, finance, trade - are looking at how to put that together really rapidly and efficiently".

President Donald Trump will spend practically no time in London during his first official visit to the United Kingdom, raising questions whether it's in order to avoid protesters.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has given permission for the balloon - a "six-metre-high, orange, inflatable baby with a malevolent face and tiny hands", according to organisers - to fly over London while Trump meets Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street on July 13.

The regime vowed to obtain a submarine capable of launching a long-range ballistic missile before the Trump-Kim summit. Kim committed generally to the goal of a " complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

The President will arrive into Britain on Thursday next week, and will not attend any events in central London.

"They will be discussing that issue - the relationship with Russian Federation - at the meeting at Chequers", Mr. Johnson said, referring to the prime minister's ceremonial country estate in Ellesborough, about 45 miles northwest of London.

Thousands are expected to protest in London on Thursday and Friday against the president's working visit.

Mrs May's spokeswoman said the balloon was a matter for the Greater London Authority but said: "As with any protest, we are a free and open democracy and we believe in the right to peaceful protest".

Opposition lawmakers, backed by an online petition signed by almost 1.9 million people, called on May to cancel the state visit offered when she met Trump in Washington after his inauguration in January past year.

The president and first lady will fly on Friday evening to Scotland.

Mr. Johnson said the president would "use various modes of transportation" but that traveling to the planned sites "is going to require being in the air for part of it". Also part of this global trip is the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, a weekend in Scotland and a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The monumental 18th-century country house, built for the first Duke of Marlborough as a reward for his military victories, was the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill, a personal hero of the president.

Regardless, protesters seem to have grand plans for the US President's visit.

"Trade will be on the agenda", May's spokeswoman told a briefing.

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