Elizabeth II will trump during his visit to the UK

The protest will will see Britons and minority ethnic groups uniting against what have been branded his London Will See Two Trumps: The President and a Balloon Parody

After he was invited a year ago, more than 1.86 million people signed a petition saying Trump should not be given a state visit because it could embarrass the queen.

The US President itinerary will avoid central London where hundreds of thousands of people are expected at a rally to protest about his visit, Xinhua news agency reported. "When we invited not one but two Presidents of China, we were prepared to overlook the fact that China is effectively a police state", he said.

President Donald Trump would like a quick trade deal with Britain once Brexit is finished, the USA ambassador to Britain said on Friday ahead of a presidential visit to London next week that will keep Trump largely away from planned mass protests.

But some Britons see Trump as crude, volatile and opposed to their values on a range of issues.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has sparred with Trump online over combating terrorism, has permitted the floating blimp for two hours Friday morning.

For the only time during his visit, Trump will then travel into London when he will stay overnight at the home of the USA ambassador in the centre of the city. And no president in living memory has stoked quite so much controversy around his visit as incumbent Donald J. Trump, a populist strongman who has turned traditional leadership on its head with his brash, unapologetic style that runs contrary to a more conservative and muted British sensibility concerning politics and politeness.

Asked whether the President's schedule was created to keep him away from possible protests, a Downing Street spokeswoman said: "Prime ministers frequently make use of Chequers for meetings with foreign leaders". He will then go to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, the family home of British kings and queens for nearly 1,000 years.

On Friday evening, the President and the First Lady will travel to Scotland where they will spend the weekend. Trump's wife, Melania, will have a separate itinerary and will be hosted by May's husband Philip.

The guest list for the dinner includes business leaders from a range of sectors and is meant to celebrate the links between the two nations - set to take on new importance in a post-Brexit world.

During dinner, an orchestra will perform a series of classic British and American hits and the Royal Regiment of Scotland will pipe the President out at the end.

"For a U.S. president who retweets far-right Britain First propaganda, insults Londoners at times of tragedy, and refuses to condemn white supremacist marches at home, this insult is well deserved" said Labour MP David Lammy.

During his stay Mr Trump will visit an unnamed military site to see the UK's armed capabilities. Nor do more than 1.8 million other Brits who signed a petition to try to stop US President Donald Trump from meeting with Queen Elizabeth.

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