Theresa May is seeking a one-on-one meeting with Donald Trump to discuss her Brexit negotiating stance, which the president said could sink a much-anticipated trade deal with the U.S. and steer the United Kingdom in the wrong direction.
A 20-foot-tall blimp depicting President Donald Trump as a baby took flight Friday morning in London, with thousands of protesters expected to march the streets to show their discontent against the president and his policies.
May has been making the case for a United States free trade deal with Trump, on his first UK visit as president.
Johnson, who led the main Brexit campaign in the 2016 referendum, resigned as foreign minister on Monday over May's strategy which he said was killing the "Brexit dream" with self-doubt. He criticized the US President over his tweets following the terror attacks in London a year ago.
"The idea that we restrict freedom of speech, the right to assemble, the right to protest because somebody might be offended is a slippery slope", he told BBC radio, adding that a protest to welcome Trump was also planned. Why, you ask? Because about 12 hours before this meeting, Trump blasted May for her handling of Brexit and said that he "told [her] how to do it but she didn't listen". "I think it's fine".

"She is not making it very clear what she actually wants at all and the White Paper, I suspect, will unravel as quickly as the Chequers cabinet agreement did". I have a lot of respect for her.
The president told The Sun newspaper that the blimp was really annoying, saying: "I used to love London as a city". "I haven't been there in a long time".
