"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".
A US V22 Osprey military aircraft returns to Winfield House, the London residence of U.S. ambassador Woody Johnson, shortly after Marine One left with Trump and the First Lady Melania Trump to take them to Blenheim Palace.
Just hours after May's foreign minister, Boris Johnson, resigned and complained that the Brexit dream was being suffocated, Trump said he might speak to him during the trip.
"It is in the interests of the U.K.to stand up and take a firm moral stance", said Zoe Gardner, a researcher and spokesperson of the Stop Trump Coalition, which is organizing protests this week in cities across the country. "Who would think? But the United Kingdom certainly - they certainly have a lot of things going on".
"I'm certainly going to Turnberry and I'll see him there".
"I just want the people to be happy, they are great people". "I don't know [if] that is what they voted for", he added.
Donald Trump has been under fire for his own immigration policy, which resulted in the separation of immigrant families.
Mr Trump's planned visit has been met with plenty of anger, with 50,000 protesters expected to take to the streets of central London on Friday.
The President, who is set for a two-day working visit followed by a weekend in Scotland, addressed the planned protests in a news conference, saying, "I think it's fine".
He was met at Stansted Airport by dignitaries including International Trade Secretary Liam Fox and the U.S. ambassador Woody Johnson.
They were booed and jeered as their helicopter left Regent's Park, with protesters who had gathered to demonstrate against the president's visit shouting "shame on you" and banging pots and pans, in the hope he would hear them from behind the fence erected around the perimeter of Winfield House.
British pageantry was on grand display Thursday as President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump arrived on the historic grounds of Blenheim Palace for an exclusive black tie gala hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May.
The declaration was odd given the topic being discussed was whether the President would support a Hard Brexit for the UK.
Activists inflate a giant balloon depicting US President Donald Trump as an orange baby in north London on July 10, 2018 ahead of a demonstration in London to coincide with the visit of the US president.
The event at Blenheim Palace will be joined by over 100 guests including business leaders and cabinet ministers.
Only one person, the digital entrepreneur and philanthropist Baroness Martha Lane-Fox, has publicly refused the invitation.
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.
The leaders will then hold talks at the PM's residence of Chequers.
