Donald Trump has arrived in Britain for talks with Theresa May just hours after attacking the Prime Minister's Brexit plan and highlighting Cabinet divisions.

A pro-Trump demonstration in London has been scheduled for Saturday.

The government said Britain would act "as if in a combined customs territory" with the European Union, using technology at its border to determine whether goods from third countries were bound for Britain or the European Union, and charging the appropriate tariffs in those cases. Amnesty International yesterday unveiled a 15-metre banner on Vauxhall bridge opposite the US Embassy branding him a "Human Rights Nightmare".

May will seek to put the tensions behind her when she hosts Trump later Thursday for a black-tie dinner with business leaders at Blenheim Palace, the birthplace of World War II prime minister Winston Churchill.

Trump continues United Kingdom visit: Protests are expected to be in full swing today.

"I have to say, I don't trust her to stand up for our country when it comes to President Trump".

Even Theresa May had to respond by saying: "I'm very clear that retweeting from Britain First was the wrong thing to do".

"Now, as we prepare to leave the European Union, we have an unprecedented opportunity to do more", she said.

People wait to see the arrival of US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump at Winfield House in London on July 12, 2018. "I get along with her very nicely".

The Labour frontbencher claimed the Prime Minister was wrong to hold the American President's hand as they walked together up Blenheim Palace's stairs on Thursday.

Shrugging off the plans for mass protests, which on Friday will include a giant baby-shaped blimp bearing Trump's features, he said in Brussels: "They like me a lot in the UK. She wanted to go a different route".

Opposition MPS, 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.

"I think what's happened to Europe is a shame".

Trump conceded that the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels earlier this week at times got "testy" over his demands that European nations increase their spending on defense, but he said it ended with "more unity" and "more spirit" and that Putin would see those headlines, not ones that talked about the alliance's divisions. "But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

Britain voted to leave the European Union in a referendum in June 2016, but after years of fighting within the government, only on Thursday published a detailed plan for future relations.

"You have a mayor who has done a awful job in London", Trump said, adding later that Khan had "done a very bad job on terrorism". "No, if they do that I would say that that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States".

The visit is also being marked with protests in central London, as well as outside the United States ambassador's residence where the Trumps are staying, while others lined the streets in Blenheim holding placards.

"I think he would be a great prime minister".

After leaving Chequers, Mr Trump travelled to Windsor Castle to have tea with Queen Elizabeth. According to his itinerary, the US president will mostly stay away from London to avoid embarrassing protests.

In a wide-ranging news conference alongside May, which followed a meeting at the prime minister's country estate, Chequers, Trump also said that immigration had been "very bad for Europe" and is changing the culture there.
