Trump balloon appears before UK visit; embassy warns Americans to keep heads down

WATCH: Donald Trump and Melania touch down in London

Donald Trump has arrived at Stansted Airport with his wife Melania for his first official visit to the United Kingdom since his election.

Trump has done more damage to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in months than Russian Federation has in decades Trump takes credit for increased defense spending by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but says "it isn't almost enough" Trump questions how Russian Federation probe can "proceed" given Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's private comments MORE on Thursday said United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May's "soft" Brexit plan would "kill" any future trade deal between the U.S. and U.K. 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.

Most people, a number of whom said they worked at the embassy in London, were tight-lipped as they left a secured area in the park near the United States ambassador's residence, where Trump and his wife Melania will stay overnight.

"I think they like me a lot in the UK", Trump said in Brussels. "I was happy when Obama did it". "I think that's why Brexit happened".

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.

Sheep grazing on the expansive lawns of the Duke of Marlborough's residence didn't seem bothered by Marine One as it emerged on the horizon, but dinner guests, in black tie suits and glittering gowns, stood at attention at the front of the palace waiting for the Trump's arrival.

He will spend Thursday and Friday in England, visiting Windsor and Chequers, before heading to Scotland for the weekend. Evie is also excited to see the planned "Trump baby" blimp which is due to fly over London and Scotland when he visits.

"We've had a lot of questions about respect", she told Sky News.

The state visit has never been scheduled - there is fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning, among other things, that Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the USA ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park rather than in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.

Johnson resigned as UK Foreign Secretary over May's handling of Brexit, a move that saw Britain vote to leave the European Union in June, 2016, following a referendum.

Organizers of anti-Trump rallies say they are not expecting any trouble at all - and that it would be very unlikely for any hostility to be directed at ordinary Americans.

They will then meet the Queen for the first time, at Windsor Castle, before heading to Scotland where the USA president will spend the weekend at his Turnberry golf course in Ayrshire.

"It's also an opportunity to tear down the bureaucratic barriers that frustrate business leaders on both sides of the Atlantic".

Britain "is in somewhat turmoil", Trump said before departing Washington, remarking that dealing with Putin might surprisingly be the easiest part of the European trip.

The trip comes amid scheduled protests throughout central London where demonstrators plan to fly a huge balloon depicting Trump as a baby.

Perhaps in a reference to Mr Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin on Monday, she said that Britain and the U.S. work closely together in the interests of their shared security, "whether through targeting Daesh [Islamic State group] terrorists or standing up to Russian aggression".

But, he added: "Whether he sees it, whether he reacts to it, we don't really care".

May said there is "no stronger alliance" than the special relationship between the two countries and "there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead".
