President Trump will then spend the weekend in Scotland with the First Lady.

Malin Baker Bogue, 28, who works in government relations and moved to Britain from the United States in 2015, said she was not a fan of Trump despite being a Republican but was still surprised by the anger he provoked.

In the evening, May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump at the stately home that will be attended by about 100 business leaders from industries including finance, pharmaceuticals, defence and technology.

May will meet at Chequers for a series of bilateral talks.

The President and the First Lady will then spend the night at Winfield House, the USA ambassador's residence in central London.

If the U.S president wants to visit a traditional London pub during his visit then he will be assured of a warm welcome in one hostelry.

The Lord Mayor of London, vocal anti-Trump critic Sadiq Khan, has approved a giant, inflatable float that resembles Donald Trump as a diaper-wearing baby, to fly over London during Trump's visit, according to this Inquisitr report.

Trump will arrive in Britain on July 12 for a "working visit", a more sober affair than the original plan for a state visit with its customary pomp and pageantry after it drew threats of mass protests.

"He would love to do a bilateral trade deal and he is really ready to step up on that the minute we get the go ahead to do it", Johnson said, adding that USA government agencies were already looking at how to put a deal together.

Monfils is another fourth round debutant after he knocked out last year's semi-finalist Sam Querrey 5-7 6-4 6-4 6-2. Her sister Serena Williams is still going strong, though, after overcoming her toughest test so far this week.

But it is possible that the President may be able to hear not only noise from any demonstrations on the streets outside, but also the call to prayer from the Central Mosque next door and the growls of lions and tigers at nearby London Zoo.

A spokeswoman for British Prime Minister Theresa May denied to The Guardian that the prime minister's use of the Chequers retreat to meet with Trump was designed specifically to help the president avoid major protests.

The spokesman added: 'We're looking forward to making sure the president has a chance to see and experience the United Kingdom beyond London and the south east'.

On Friday evening, the Trumps will travel to Scotland, where the President owns two golf properties, Trump Turnberry and Trump Aberdeen.

The American president will probably throw in a few quotes about the "special relationship" too, even as tens of thousands of protesters hit the streets of London to show Trump exactly how unpopular he is with the citizens of Washington's chief ally.

On Sunday Mr Trump flies to Finland for talks with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

Mrs. May has publicly admonished Mr. Trump, including his trade agenda, and the two engaged in a Twitter spat past year after Mrs.

"No, the president is not avoiding anything".

Local councillors in west Oxfordshire from the opposition Labour Party also wrote in an open letter to Trump that they object to his visit to Blenheim Palace.
