Protests are expected against Trump, whose policies - including a travel ban on a number of predominantly Muslim countries, detention of child migrants on the US-Mexico border and imposition of tariffs on European Union steel and aluminium exports - have all been criticised by the UK. The U.S. Embassy put out a travel alert on Tuesday about the demonstrations, warning U.S. travellers to London to "keep a low profile". Many will see his avoidance of London as proof he is trying to keep away from dissent, however, the USA ambassador to the UK, Woody Johnson, denied this. "I think they like me a lot in the UK. It's about lifting the spirits of the nation and it's already doing that, you know, it's just putting smiles on the faces of people who had started to despair about the state of politics".
"I just want the people to be happy, they are great people".
Meanwhile, other activists in London have been quickly raising money to launch their own balloon of Khan, in protest of crime levels in the capital. "The fact that something so blatantly mocking and disrespectful to the most powerful man in the world would be permitted to fly in the air whilst he is visiting a foreign country speaks legions to her about how her husband's presidency is viewed internationally".
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 a year ago.
"However, let's not throw Trump Baby out with the bathwater - he'd be a welcome sight at any of the many protests happening across Scotland over the course of the visit".
Despite not being an official state visit, the Government is desperate to ensure the U.S. leader feels he is being treated with the appropriate level of pomp and ceremony.
Ahead of his arrival the PM said she would use the visit to "forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership" with the United States after Brexit.
Trump confidant Chris Ruddy believes the President, who is due to fly into the United Kingdom today, will not react how people think he will to the balloon. All NATO members agreed in 2014 to mandate spending 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense within 10 years, spending that effectively buys NATO protection.
He is due to leave Britain on Sunday for talks in Helsinki the following day with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose government stands accused by May's of unleashing a lethal nerve agent in the city of Salisbury.
On Friday evening, Trump and the First Lady whisk up to Scotland for a weekend of golf and relaxation - and more protests outside his resort.
