With its straw-blond hair, questionable face tan and unmistakably out-of-proportion hands, a blimp meant to depict President Donald Trump as a screaming baby flew outside the Parliament building in London Friday. "But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?" he said.

The US President said: "I used to love London as a city".

"The sense of betrayal in this country will be huge, and I very much hope that she's out of office before too long", Farage said.

Because of the wave of immigration, Trump said, Europe is "losing [its] culture". "I actually told Theresa May how to do it, but she didn't listen to me".

U.S. first lady Melania Trump, U.S. President Donald Trump, Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, and her husband, Philip May, stand on the steps in the Great Court to watch the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards perform a ceremonial welcome.

"I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the disgusting things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in".

Asked if the new row could jeopardize that bond, he said: "It takes two to tango, and I'm not tweeting President Trump or saying beastly things about him".

With considerable optimism, Treasury chief Philip Hammond said May was looking forward to her talks with the president.

His visit has sparked opposition since May invited the president to a prestigious state visit when she became the first world leader to meet Trump at the White House following his inauguration.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave the greenlight to activists to fly a giant balloon depicting an orange baby Trump throwing a tantrum during the US president's visit.

One of the organisers behind "Baby Trump", Kevin Smith, said it was devised by a group of friends who got together in a pub. "I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the terrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in".

Giant blimp baby Trump isn't the only form of protest campaigners have planned for the President's trip through the country. "Now he might not like the current President, but I represent the United States".

Daniel Jones, a charity communications officer who helped organize the blimp, said the stunt was supposed to make people smile while also underlining serious criticism of the U.S. leader.

"I'm also quite clear that although there has been an increase in violent crime across England and Wales, including London, over the last four years, I don't think the rise in crime is because of immigration", Khan told the BBC.

Prime Minister Theresa May said her plan to keep close economic ties with the European Union once Britain leaves the bloc next March was "principled and pragmatic".

Trump arrived in the United Kingdom on Thursday afternoon, after flying in from a tumultuous North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

After a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit where he provoked a crisis session to force allies to raise their defence spending, Trump landed in Britain having described the closest U.S. ally in Europe as being in turmoil over Brexit.

Trump said such a deal "will probably kil" any prospect of a US-UK free-trade agreement. Donald Trump told The Sun that the blimp makes him feel like he's not welcome here.
