President Donald Trump has praised the "eternal friendship" between the United Kingdom and the United States at a state banquet at Buckingham Palace with the British royal family. The event is part of the president's three-day UK state visit, which includes the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings. The first lady, four of Trump's five children, and two of their spouses were also in attendance at the dinner.
Prime Minister Theresa May did not hold a one-on-one bilateral meeting with the president during his visit, but hosted Trump in Downing Street on Tuesday for a series of events as one of the final acts of her premiership.
Trump also met with Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage at the American ambassador’s residence on Tuesday afternoon. Trump said at a news conference on the same day that he believed Brexit would eventually happen. Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn – who boycotted the state dinner – is due to attend and speak at a London demonstration against Trump's visit, a party spokesman has confirmed.
