US President Donald Trump arrived in the United Kingdom on Monday for an official three-day state visit.
Doing what he is known for, Trump has already thrown in rhetorical punches on Twitter by blasting a prominent local critic as 'a stone cold loser'.
Speaking to John Maytham, UK correspondent Gavin Grey says there are huge banners outside the US embassy pin protest against Trump.
.@SadiqKhan, who by all accounts has done a terrible job as Mayor of London, has been foolishly “nasty” to the visiting President of the United States, by far the most important ally of the United Kingdom. He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me......— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
....Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, de Blasio, who has also done a terrible job - only half his height. In any event, I look forward to being a great friend to the United Kingdom, and am looking very much forward to my visit. Landing now!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 3, 2019
He is being ignored by the Labour Party and some senior other politicians who say he is misogynist and divisive.— Gavin Grey, UK Correspondent
Donald Trump is flattered and desperate to meet the queen, and this is about trade.— Gavin Grey, UK Correspondent
