CBS News reports:
President Trump touched down at Stansted Airport outside London on Monday morning, kicking off his first official state visit to Britain. After a helicopter ride into the center of the British capital Mr. Trump and First Lady Melania will rest for a while before joining Queen Elizabeth II for lunch.
Thousands protested during Mr. Trump’s last visit to Britain, and similar demonstrations are widely expected this week.
“It’s not just the normal threat of some violence, and you’ve got the assassination risk; it’s also a threat and risk really around protests and the level of that protest,” Richard Walton, the former head of counter-terrorism at Scotland Yard, told CBS News about the major security operation rolled out for the U.S. leader’s visit.
