Queen Elizabeth is ‘just an incredible woman’

Donald Trump has met Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle for a "social visit", during which the pair are expected to share a cup of tea.

Mr. Trump, who was greeted by massive protests in London, criticized UK Prime Minister Theresa May in an interview published Thursday in The Sun, a British tabloid, over her handling of Brexit.

Trump referred to the blimp in an interview the The Sun newspaper, saying it's part of the reason why he doesn't feel welcome in the capital.

The trade deal's fate, though, really hangs on the fragility and temperamental nature of Trump's mood and, if he looks out his hotel window at the mass protests and demonstrations happening in London, it might well be called off once again. I haven't been there in a long time.

Protesters are set to fly the Baby Trump blimp over Parliament on Friday when Trump will not be in town.

The Queen and the President then inspected the Guard of Honour, with Mr Trump appearing to break protocol by walking ahead of the Queen - who usually keeps slightly ahead of her guest - as the 92-year-old walked cautiously on the grass.

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".

The US president attacked Sadiq Khan, the Greater London Authority, suggesting he was a "terrible mayor" who had "done a very bad job on terrorism" by allowing so many migrants to come to the city.

Thousands of people have also gathered in various cities around the country to protest against his visit. "I think she represents her country so well", Trump said.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper during his first official visit to the UK, Trump laid into May's plans to maintain close links with the European Union post-Brexit.

Earlier in the day, President Trump met with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May for a politically charged one-on-one. "I think they agree with me on immigration".

The Queen all smiles as she shakes hands with Donald Trump and wife Melania - even though it looked like the US President broke royal etiquette.

Trump had said that May's plan would "probably kill the deal" as it would mean the United States "would be dealing with the European Union" instead of the UK.
