Nearly 300 people gathered in Cardiff city centre with other protests being held in Swansea and outside the Senedd in Cardiff Bay. "So I think that's the effect the balloon will have".

About 150 people turned out in Swansea to voice their displeasure at the visit.

Topics addressed by Trump in the two and a half minute time-frame include the many properties he owns in Ireland and Scotland, how he has nothing to say about Brexit, how he won the state of Wisconsin even though Ronald Reagan did not and finally, his sentiments about Ireland. "I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him", said Mr Trump.

He then said that he "at least partially won an election" based on his immigration views, adding that European countries are equally concerned about the issue.

Thailand's junta chief told reporters on Tuesday that the group had been given a "minor tranquiliser" to help calm their nerves. They were found dishevelled and emaciated but alive on a muddy ledge 4km inside the cave nine days after they went missing.

The two leaders will hold talks at the prime minister's country residence of Chequers where Russia, Brexit and the Middle East will top the agenda.

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte told reporters his country has no plans to increase defense funding.

Trump has been quick to criticize British society, telling a National Rifle Association convention in May that the British didn't have guns but had so much knife crime that one hospital was like a military war zone with its floors awash with blood, a false statement quickly rebutted by British physicians and politicians.

It comes just days after the president declined to say whether Mrs May should remain in post, declared he had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary over the Chequers agreement, and described the United Kingdom as being in "turmoil".

Trump will then join wife Melania as they head to Windsor Castle for their audience with the Queen before flying out to Scotland, where they are expected to visit both Trump Turnberry and Trump International Golf Links Scotland.

As well as in London, protests are expected to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff after Trump arrives here on Thursday.

Before leaving, Trump spent day two of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit renewing his call for member states to spend more - this time up to 4 percent of their gross domestic product - on defense.

On Saturday, Trump supporters will rally near the United States embassy in Nine Elms, south London, for an event titled "Welcoming Trump to Britain Rally - Make Britain Great Again", at which a number of right-wing figures are scheduled to speak.

"And I said Putin may be the easiest of them all", he continued.

"Ironically, it's also standing in solidarity with those people who voted for Trump, who ultimately their lives will be affected negatively by this...because they've been lied to, they've been manipulated".
