After Trump's tumult, time for tea with the queen

Howard TerryJul 14, 2018

President Trump on Thursday wrapped the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, leaving behind a trail of confusion, and landed in London where he faces chaos and anger.

President Donald Trump said he felt "unwelcome" in London after its mayor, Sadiq Khan, permitted a 20-foot-tall angry "Trump Baby" blimp depicting him to be flown during his visit to the UK. The first battalion of the Coldstream Guards then performed a march past and salute, before the three went inside the castle to take afternoon tea. Yet, now that protesters are planning to fly a great big diapered Baby Trump blimp, he doesn't feel welcome anymore.

A weekly recap of the top political stories from The Globe, sent right to your email. The queen wore a bright blue suit, while the first lady was dressed in a cream-colored pencil skirt and matching jacket.

The president and queen then broke off to review the troops, walking slowly past a line of Coldstream Guards wearing traditional bearskin hats. Her gait has slowed over the years and she walks slowly and carefully.

Thousands began protesting in London as British Prime Minister Theresa May welcomed US President Donald Trump to her official country residence for a meeting that is expected to be unusually tense, after he trashed her Brexit plan in a newspaper interview.

Are we even surprised the controversial president did a faux pas?

On Friday morning, POTUS held talks and a working lunch with May at her country retreat of Chequers, after excoriating her Brexit strategy, while Melania took time out during the couple's four-day visit to Britain to meet veterans and make paper flowers with schoolchildren. Look at what is going on in London", Trump said, before referring directly to Khan: "I think he has done a very bad job on terrorism.

After the story was published, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the president "likes and respects Prime Minister May very much", adding that he said in the interview she "is a very good person", and that he "never said anything bad about her". You don't see, like, anything embarrassing. "She is just an incredible woman". Balloon Trump is also dressed in a nappy.

"My mother loved the queen. If signing up to the Trump worldview is the price of a deal, it's not worth paying", said one MP in May's party.
