Theresa May has welcomed Donald Trump to the UK with a lavish black-tie dinner - during which she made a case for a new trade deal with the US, APA reports quoting CNN.

 

The US president and the first lady were given a red carpet reception at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire.

 

It is Mr Trump's first visit to the UK since he won the 2016 election.

 

Protesters gathered outside the US ambassador's residence in London, where the Trumps are staying tonight, and near Blenheim Palace.

 

Police estimated there were about 1,000 people demonstrating near the palace, the birthplace of wartime Prime Minister Winston Churchill.


His visit comes as the government published its plans for the UK's relations with the EU after Brexit.

 

Earlier this week Mr Trump said it was "up to the people" whether the prime minister stayed on after two cabinet ministers resigned over her Brexit policy.
