"We have enough difficulty with the European Union", he said.

British Prime Minster Theresa May and U.S. President Donald Trump walk across the courtyard at Blenheim Palace, where they are attending a dinner with specially invited guests and business leaders, near Oxford.

Trump conceded that the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels earlier this week at times got "testy" over his demands that European nations increase their spending on defense, but he said it ended with "more unity" and "more spirit" and that Putin would see those headlines, not ones that talked about the alliance's divisions. "This is not an accident".

A high fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night and the embassy has sent out an alert warning Americans in London to keep a low profile in case protests turn violent.

Ambassador Johnson sought to play down Trump's comments. White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser John Bolton followed close behind. The U.S. Embassy on Tuesday warned Americans in the capital to keep a low profile.

The president is then set to take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, before heading to Scotland and the rolling green landscape of his golf course. Since the president will travel by helicopter to locations, it is unlikely he'll actually see the demonstrations.

The poll conducted this week said 63% found Trump racist, and 74% said he was sexist.

Asked for his views on Britain's departure from the European Union, Trump said he did not wish to be seen as interfering in United Kingdom politics.

High levels of immigration and a desire for sovereignty were some of the reasons that Britons voted 52% to 48% to leave the 28-member European Union in a historic referendum in 2016.

Nigel Farage was questioned on whether he had "wound up" Mr Trump about Brexit on BBC's This Week. "I don't know (if) that is what they voted for", he added.

Protests are planned across the country where the president says the people like him a lot. He obviously likes me and says very good things about me.

"Whatever you do is OK with us, just make sure we can trade together, that's all that matters". He was severely criticised last November, including by May, after sharing three inflammatory anti-Muslim videos posted by far-right group Britain First. Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis both quit the government this week in protest. "I'm very strong on immigration".

Trump even asserted that Johnson, a New York-born former mayor of London, "would be a great prime minister".

Trump's schedule doesn't include any meetings in London.

But Trump said Friday that after speaking with May's officials and trade experts a UK-US trade deal "will be possible".

Trump weighed in on British political affairs.

Late past year, Ms May herself criticised Mr Trump for retweeting a message by a member of a British far-right group, and the speaker of parliament has said the president would not be welcome to address the chamber.

On Friday, he will hold talks with May expected to focus on Brexit and Russian Federation, at the prime minister's Chequers country residence followed by a press conference.
