President Trump Takes Tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle

London mayor Sadiq Khan has defended the right for a 20-foot "angry baby blimp" depicting president Donald Trump to be flown in Parliament Square during the U.S. leader's four-day "working visit" to Britain.

In an interview with British newspaper The Sun in which Trump also attacked Prime Minister Theresa May over her strategy for exiting the European Union, the president said that the queen had "never made a mistake" during her long reign.

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trump said. And, although he insisted he was not trying to pit Johnson against May, he added: "I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister".

Trump Baby Blimp takes flight, Parliament Square, London.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who was criticised by Trump in the Sun interview for failing to control crime and prevent militant attacks, gave his blessing for the blimp to be flown and rejected suggestions this showed a lack of respect to the USA president.

He wrote on Twitter that although Londoners admire the US, they "find his policies and actions the polar opposite of our city's values of inclusion, diversity, and tolerance". But as they all stood together to listen to the national anthem, her facial expression turned grim....because Trump messed up, big time. Defending his decision, the mayor said: "Can you imagine if we limited free speech because some people's feelings would be hurt?" The Conservative MP said that Trump would negotiate Brexit "bloody hard", adding: "There'd be all sorts of breakdowns, all sorts of chaos".

He proceeded to throw jabs at Mayor Khan, not only for allowing the baby blimp to fly above protests in London that are set to take place this week during his stay, but also for his criticism on Trump's travel ban on citizens from predominately Muslim countries, according to USA Today.

As for the barrage, it preceded Trump and Prime Minister Theresa May's meeting at May's country retreat at Chequers and included comments from Trump that May's Brexit plan would "kill any trade deal with the U.S". "I would have done it much differently, ' Trump said".

In a post shared with her 132k Twitter followers, the 51-year-old said: "Five minutes at Windsor and a Pro-Trump supporter has just come up to me and said, 'If I had bullets in my camera, I'd deal with you".
