Baby blimp that made Trump 'feel unwelcome' takes off in Parliament Square

In an interview with The Sun that published Thursday, Trump warned that May's approach to Brexit would likely "kill" the prospect of a new US-UK trade deal and said he had "told her (May) how to do" Brexit.

The blimp, designed by Leo Murray, flew over Parliament Square in London on Friday when organizers said almost 250,000 people took to the streets to mark Trump's first visit to the U.K.as president.

Trump is in the United Kingdom for four days and headed to Scotland after meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May and having tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

Mr. Trump and his wife, first lady Melania Trump were treated to a rendition of the U.S. National Anthem before Mr. Trump and the queen inspect her guard of honor.

The US president left Mrs May badly wounded when he criticised her negotiating style, lavished praise on Boris Johnson and attacked her Brexit plan in an interview with The Sun.

Donald Trump met Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle on Friday but the 92-year-old monarch was forced at one point to walk around the US president after he halted abruptly during a ceremonial inspection of the guard.

"I must say, I've gotten to know Theresa May much better over the last two days than I've known her over the past year and a half..."

Sarah Elliott, chairwoman of Republicans Overseas UK, told CNN she did not think Trump would be fazed by the stunt.

Describing the remarks as "frankly embarrassing", the Labour leader said: "He lives in a democracy where people have a right to free speech, a right to demonstrate and a right to express themselves". Just make sure we can trade together.

"No, if they do that I would say that that would probably end a major trade relationship with the United States".

Wearing a t-shirt with the word "RESIST" on it, she said it was great that the blimp had "touched a nerve" with Trump.

"I think he is a great representative for your country".

More than 64,000 people signed up to demonstrate in London against the visit and other protests were expected in major cities around the country. I have a lot of respect for the prime minister. "That's why we flew over him with a message branding him well below par". "I haven't been there in a long time".
