sixty people. will be taking you live now to windsor where you can see the u.s. president is just arriving for his meeting with the queen he is set to have a meeting with her team actually for about half an hour this is something we know president trump has been very much looking forward to on his trip here to the u.k. this will be the high point of his trip he's been very keen to meet the queen and here we have him just pulling up to windsor and we understand that he is arriving at a particular point of the cost of all this in order to avoid seeing protests as a we have seen on the second day of his trip to the u.k. many thousands of protesters descending in central london and other cities here in the u.k. but here we can see that trump's approach to windsor castle being carefully orchestrated
7:01 pm
and choreographed in order to avoid many of those protests and you can see president trump just passing by. as he arrives to meet the queen. at a very busy day today he was with the prime minister to reason may at checkers retreat a rather awkward joint press conference a little bit earlier on in which president trump was backtracking all downplaying comments he'd made to britain's sun newspaper criticizing a treasonous breaks it strategy but then striking a very different tone with the prime minister earlier on in here we can see president trump and his wife melania thanking the queen.

7:04 pm
so here we see president donald trump and his wife melania meeting the british want to for the first time they argue to have tea with the queen that meeting is likely to last about thirty minutes we know this is something that president trump has been looking forward to in his interview to the sun newspaper he praised the queen describing her as a tremendous woman he said i think she represents have country very well so there we see president donald write the queen but he has had a very busy day because earlier on the help troops with u.k. prime minister to reason they are a country residents of london the to reaffirm their special relationship and donald trump promised to support a host breaks a trade deal this is despite reports in a british newspaper where he appears to criticize may's handling of threats it was
7:05 pm
largely has more from buckinghamshire. he came heralded by all the american military hardware that comes with a presidential visit but this current of threats on the hurdle in relations between two countries is supposed to be the best of friends. because directly before the visit trump dropped a bomb telling the pro breck's it sun newspaper that the british prime minister's plan for leaving the european union was basically rubbish and that he would not offer a trade deal in place. he also offered his support to terry's amaze nemesis boris johnson he resigned as foreign secretary over that plan trump said johnson would make a great prime minister impossible to read in any other way than a direct attack on may's already fragile leadership aides from both sides set about a gigantic damage limitation exercise so that after talks the checkers and may explain the water exit plan from the european union actually meant trumps tone was
7:06 pm
entirely different once the brics that process is concluded and perhaps the u.k. has left the e.u. i don't know what they're going to do but whatever you do is ok with me that your decision whatever you're going to do is ok with us just make sure we can trade together that's all that matters was a relief for the british prime minister who will be no limit to the possibility of us doing trade deals around the rest of the world once we leave the european union on the basis of the agreement that was made here at checkers in that i've put forward to the european union the suspicion is that the newspaper article came from a whispering campaign against may perhaps a mistake political opponents intent on destroying and having trump c.-a if so and given that trumps are readily bought their ideas may surely would be forgiven for awesome himself who had a real friend should be before he arrived here donald trump once again describes
7:07 pm
himself as a very stable genius and yet it is striking how his position on bricks it seems to change dependent on who he's speaking to all deeply the people who will be most encouraged by all this all the european union who would surely argue to the u.k. government but it's far more straightforward to deal with them that is to deal with trump. and so they will if you went to meet the queen the so-called special relationship with a place it has never been before the presidents who claims to love britain but whose inconsistent rhetoric face enormous questions about his commitment to his political stability. check as. well jonah hala joins us live now from windsor where president and melania arrived just a little bit earlier on and so joe no we know that the queen has met nearly every u.s. president since nine hundred fifty two. what can you what are the expectations of
7:08 pm
her meeting with the president from apologies for that some technical problems that we will try to reestablish a connection with jonah but here we have pictures coming to us from windsor and as i was saying the queen has met nearly every u.s. president with the exception of one since nine hundred fifty two since. they want to keep began but perhaps this meeting promises to be a little bit different than trump's style and his approach to the presidency let's now speak to china all because scenes back with us jonah tell us more about this meeting. as you were saying there she's met all the u.s. presidents stating back to be buried in the sixty's here in windsor just since the eighty's she's entertained ronald reagan george w. bush the obama's and of course now the trumps in what is the queen's favorite residence just about hour or so outside london i think expectation wise well that
7:09 pm
it goes off without incident is probably the best expectation that the queen and her team will have all of this given the events of the last couple of days will be pleased to be there he's often the first great aeration for the monarchy and for the queen herself in fact he had a pretty glowing words for her even maps. sun newspaper on the record interview albeit one that people are dismissed as being for big news he said if you think of it for so many years she's represented her country she's really never made a mistake you don't see like anything embarrassing she's just an incredible woman so one imagines they'll be as in trees exchanged certainly nothing to call truth but discussed will probably be treated trumps your full english afternoon tea and one imagines it was go on too long before he makes his way to the airport and then off to scotland for a golfing weekend where of course the protesters will follow him as well big
7:10 pm
protests planned up in scotland. all right for now thank you very much joe now with all the latest from windsor enjoin i was just mentioning that the protesters that protest expected in scotland but of course earlier on we saw a giant blimp depicting the u.s. president as a baby which was flying above london as part of massive protests against his visit tens of thousands of people demonstrated in the capital on friday one of more than one hundred organized protests during trump's four day visit jolly angela has been at the demonstrations in central london. this is london's gift to president trump a baby blimp with a phone that presided over the start of protests i proud in the capital have swelled into the tens of thousands as different groups joined together to send the message to the president has handled the. president trying to bring them to missile jenny his contempt for democracies embrace of dictatorship and these incredibly low values
7:11 pm
a mistake to try to. turn to is everything that's wrong is trying to achieve them in a piece from the foldback history seems to be i'm a small bit he said if it is disgusting to me stop. i this diverse group of people say they believe trump is a wrecking ball for race relations women's rights climate change solutions and prosperity to handle the crowds the biggest police security operation on london streets since the riots in two thousand and eleven before the u.s. embassy has told americans to keep a low profile and exercise caution despite many americans joining the demonstrations but president trump's visit has been carefully choreographed to avoid the protests rates he's traveling by helicopter to venues outside london the president trying to be traveling mostly by protesters that had to get creative and they're hoping this was all shined believing depicting trump as an angry baby would catch his eyes he flies over like the organizers say the stunt was an attempt to show the president's club like politics it was approved by london smuggled the city
7:12 pm
told president trump is reportedly unhappy about the blame and in an interview attacked london's meth his handling of terrorism and crime in the capital this was his response one of the things that americans love our city all the rights we have here the right to protest the right to have free speech the right to freedom of assembly and the idea that we would tell those rights because it may cause offense to president or somebody else i think americans would find objectionable why because their own constitution huh. the rights of freedom of speech freedom to protest freedom to assemble that right to protest will be exercised across the u.k. throughout the president's visit bad optics for president for him image is everything. al-jazeera. joins us live from parliament square in central london and pictures suggest that protesters are out in force what can you tell us about the turnout any. police has said that trafalgar square where the main
7:13 pm
thrust of the process is taking place at the moment has already reached capacity that's around twenty thousand people we believe also that street surrounding the square of full as well things shifted from parliament square earlier in the day where there was a women's protests down to trafalgar square and the numbers have been quite extraordinary people have been coming in droves really throughout the day we do know also that people have been bussed into the capital. different parts of the country too in that similar demonstrations are also happening in other towns and cities elsewhere in the country so when it comes to numbers it's very difficult right now to understand the scale of things brought ice to say here in the capital that it's looking close to around the fifty thousand mark if not more than that but undoubtedly will have some sense of the full figures towards the end of the day people here united in the belief that donald trump represents bigotry that he's a soldier mr xenophobe that he has
7:14 pm
a poor record when it comes to defending the environment after pulling out of the paris agreement and that the british prime minister treason may isn't doing enough to send him the kind of message that these people here want to send him. why is this visit mobilize such a strong reaction. well as you know i mean he's not the first international leader to come to the u.k. and see protests he's not the most controversial perhaps leader in history to come here to the u.k. but there are these massive protests of the kind we haven't seen in a very very long time indeed why is that while it could be largely down to his relevance it has a direct impact on the future destiny as opposed of the u.k. as it heads towards leaving the european union when it comes to the kind of trade relationships that the u.k. wants to build with the u.s. going forward donald trump has been very consistent or inconsistent rather in the the message he's been sending to the u.k. so very deep concerns there about what that relationship that so-called special
7:15 pm
relationship with the u.s. will be like going forward also when it comes to proximity as well if the u.k. and the u.s. are in that special relationship it's a relationship that many people have been taking part in this demonstration believe is under strain it needs reevaluating needs reassessing and without what people here believe is a prime minister who's capable of doing that herself whoa the people have come out on the road off their own back vocally saying what they want which is a stronger healthier relationship the u.s. and the u.k. going forward something that the current leadership in the u.k. these people believe are not providing. all right thank you very much nice back with all the latest on those protests on the second day of trump's visit to the u.k. . or coming out we're going to bring you our other top story this hour disgraced former prime minister nawaz sharif and his daughter arrive in pakistan where they are expected to be arrested.
