Queen Elizabeth meets President Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump met The Queen in the gardens of her Berkshire home on Friday, a monumental visit and the first time the three have met together.

In an interview with British newspaper The Sun in which Trump also attacked Prime Minister Theresa May over her strategy for exiting the European Union, the president said that the queen had "never made a mistake" during her long reign. "I think he is a great representative for your country".

"I used to love London as a city", Trump said.

Despite lauding the strength of the USA -U.K.

He wrote on Twitter that although Londoners admire the USA, they "find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance". On Friday, people took to the streets outside of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament as a part of a "Stop Trump" demonstration, which included a giant balloon created to impersonate the president. "We really have a very good relationship". Many other signs were ridden with profanity against Trump.

Earlier, protester Leo Murray, one of the blimp's "babysitters", said: "We were inundated with messages from friends and allies in Scotland asking us to bring Trump baby up, so we really wanted to make sure that he could be a part of the fantastic spread of protests taking place over the weekend". Reports have indicated that his visit will be met with protests, prompting a warning from the U.S. Embassy in London, which advised Americans in the country to "keep a low profile" in case the demonstrations turn violent.

A historic meeting took place on Friday.

Supporters of Donald Trump say a protest baby blimp set to fly over London is disrespectful to the President - but one thinks he will actually find it "funny". "What is interesting is Trump is not criticising mayors of those cities, but he is criticising me", he told the BBC's Today programme. "He is thankful for the wonderful welcome from the Prime Minister here in the U.K", Sanders said.

Pound drops sharply on comments from Trump that May's Brexit plans will "probably kill" any US-UK trade deal. "I would give our relationship with the United Kingdom, and now, after these past two days with your prime minister, I would say the highest level of special", he told reporters.
