Donald Trump and Melania touch down in London

Trump balloon appears before UK visit; embassy warns Americans to keep heads down WATCH: Donald Trump and Melania touch down in London

Asad Rehman, 51, one of the organizers of a massive protest planned for central London, said that among the motivations behind the protest was to show solidarity with Americans across the Atlantic who also oppose Trump.

"At the same time, we will not compromise our fundamental values of equality, diversity and human rights, and we expect these values to be made clear during the presidential visit to the UK".

He arrives about a year and a half after Prime Minister Theresa May invited him for a state visit, an invitation that was met intense opposition in the United Kingdom - nearly 2 million people signed a petition to rescind the invite.

"Give us your tired and your oppressed and we'll divide you from your children", he said mockingly of Mr. Trump's policies.

Trump will spend the weekend at the former, which he described as a "magical place", before heading to Helsinki, Finland, for a much-anticipated summit on July 16 with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

It has also complained that 300 officers working during the visit will have to sleep on camp beds in a gymnasium that has no hot water and restricted access to hot food.

President Trump and British Prime Minister Theresa May, seen during a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels on Wednesday, will reconvene this week in the United Kingdom.

Gardner, who works with refugees as part of her doctoral research at the London School of Economics, said Trump's speeches about refugees and immigrants are "a very unsafe line of rhetoric to be normalized".

Speaking in the House of Commons on Thursday, the Liverpool Labour MP Dan Carden called for Parliament to ensure that protesters were given sufficient space to express their views, saying police in London had denied demonstrators a proper stage from which to address the rallies. Trump will travel by helicopter once there, making it unlikely he'll see protests firsthand.

"Brexit is Brexit, the people voted to break it up so I would imagine that is what they'll do, but they might take a different route, I'm not sure that's what people voted for", Trump said, adding: "They're great people - I just want them to be happy".

The UK prime minister has recently been struggling to unite her Cabinet behind her Brexit plans, with two senior ministers resigning earlier in the week.

Despite a series of diplomatic spats between Britain and Trump, the British government is hoping for a quick trade deal with the United States after it leaves the European Union.

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

Russia, Brexit and the Middle East are set to top the agenda.

The US Embassy in Britain has urged Americans to "keep a low profile" during the president's visit to London.

We're more than used to our best sports-stars and celebrities being picked up as "British" in the English media when they're on the rise, and "Irish" when they're underperforming or in trouble.

The two leaders will hold talks the following day at Chequers, the 16th-century manor house which is the prime minister's official country residence.

Sarah Elliott, chairwoman of Republicans Overseas UK, told CNN she did not think Trump would be fazed by the stunt.
