When asked directly if Trump would meet Johnson, U.S. Ambassador in London Woody Johnson told BBC Radio: "I'm not sure".

Gatherings and rallies are planned across the United Kingdom from Thursday, when Mr Trump is expected to touch down in Britain.

Trump's visit to the U.K.is expected to be met with significant protests from left-wing activists, promoted by members of the left-wing Labour Party who have repeatedly called for Trump to be uninvited, particularly due to his administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policies that separated children from their families at the border.

The US Embassy in London has warned protests during Donald Trump's visit this week could turn violent.

However, the president's impending trip to Britain has stirred up quite a bit of controversy amongst citizens of our neighbor-nation across the pond, with thousands of protesters expected to take to the streets upon his arrival.

In the Tuesday memo, the U.S. Embassy in London alerted citizens to the "numerous demonstrations" that could "attract large crowds" that may be less than agreeable toward Americans.

With 316 Conservative MPs in the House of Commons, Sir Graham must receive 48 letters to call a ballot. Others have voiced their support for May's premiership and against a future Labour prime minister.

While he is in England, he will hold talks with Prime Minister Theresa May at her 16th century home, meet with Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle as well as attend a black-tie dinner at the former home of Winston Churchill.

But Trump is unlikely to see many of those who have mobilized to protest against his visit.

US President Donald Trump is set to land in London on Thursday for a three-day visit to the UK.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has granted permission for the blimp to fly above the square between 9.30am and 11.30am.

Trump, for his part, will largely be avoiding London during his visit, according to this Inquisitr report, instead spending much of his time in Scotland, where he owns golf courses.

The organizers also said that their crowdfunding was so successful that not only will the blimp fly for Trump's visit but will also be spotted in other worldwide locales.
