"She should negotiate the best way she knows how", Trump continued.

At a news conference, Trump said the United States could withdraw from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and go it alone, if necessary, although he said that likely won't be needed.

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May (L) and her husband Philip May (2R) walk with President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump as the president and the first lady arrive for a dinner at Blenheim Palace, west of London, July 12, 2018.

The president will be accompanied by up to 1000 staff, a motorcade and multiple helicopters during his trip.

A large police presence has been building up outside the palace in Oxfordshire and BBC News correspondent Duncan Kennedy said about 500-600 protesters bearing placards were demonstrating before Mr Trump's arrival. "I just want the people to be happy".

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trump said, according to The Sun. I think that " s why Brexit happened". "I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him", said Mr Trump.

In a statement ahead of Trump's arrival, she said the visit would focus on trade and strengthening defence and security ties, saying there was no stronger alliance than Britain's "special relationship with the USA".

On Friday, Trump will meet with May at Chequers and another meeting with the Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Palace.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho shared his feelings following French-Belgium clash at 2018 World Cup semifinals. For France , losing in the 2016 European Championships final to Portugal in Paris has provided added motivation.

The president wore a black tuxedo for the occasion as he escorted his wife from the USA ambassador's London residence in Regent's Park to the awaiting helicopter Marine One.

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

"I'm going to a pretty hot spot right now, right?"

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. Vince Cable, the leader of the pro-EU Liberal Democrats, said, "Most of us don't think he is particularly good judge on Brexit or anything else".

Prime Minister May has abundant reasons to seek a close relationship with Mr. Trump - not least, the United States will be an even more vital trade partner once Britain leaves the European Union next year - but it is an uneasy embrace, given her opposition to many of his key policies.

"At the same time, we will not compromise our fundamental values of equality, diversity and human rights, and we expect these values to be made clear during the presidential visit to the UK".

"I'd like to see them be able to work it out so it could go quickly", he said.

"The trip, which will include tea with the Queen and a private weekend in Scotland, is set to be greeted by a mass demonstration in London on Friday".
