Melania reaching for hand

As you remember, Donald Trump and Melania Trump have a complicated history with hand-to-hand contact, but the couple has shared yet another surprising public display of affection.

As the Trumps descended the steps of Air Force One at Stansted Airport in the U.K. on Thursday, the first lady seemingly reached for the president’s hand.

Smirking at his wife’s welcoming gesture, Trump at first seemed to keep his hand by his side.

By the time the two hit the pavement, they found their connected stride, holding hands and matching steps.

Trump says he feels ‘unwelcomed’ in London

Trump blasted London Mayor Sadiq Khan as soft on terrorism and regretted that he’s been made to feel “unwelcomed” in the British capital on Thursday.

“Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London. I think he (Khan) has done a very bad job on terrorism,” Trump told The Sun newspaper.

“I think he has done a bad job on crime, if you look, all of the horrible things going on there, with all of the crime that is being brought in.”

London endured four terrorists attacks in 2017.

 20-foot “Trump Baby” blimp 

The president revealed that he knows about the mocking 20-foot “Trump Baby” blimp that flew over Parliament Square on Thursday.

“I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London,” Trump said.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave the green light for the orange balloon depicting a sneering Trump wearing a diaper and holding a cellphone to hover near Parliament when the president arrives.

Khan, who has been a persistent critic of the president, approved the request after thousands of people signed a crowdfunding campaign that raised more than $18,000 for the “Trump baby” zeppelin.

Giant crop circle

The crop circle on Moat Farm in Stoke Mandeville says “блядь” in Russian, with “Trump” directly beneath it. The Russian word directly translates to “whore.” It’s also used as an exclamation, much like shit and damn.

In this context, it probably translates to “Fuck Trump,” possibly a jab at the president’s chumminess toward Russian president Vladimir Putin. The circle is directly under Trump’s flight path from London to Chequers, where Trump will visit Prime Minister Theresa May on Friday.

Trump criticized May

Trump spoke with a major British tabloid where he differed with British Prime Minister Theresa May on her approach to Brexit.

“I told her how to do it. That will be up to her to say. But I told her how to do it. She wanted to go a different route,” Trump said, according to audio of an interview posted by The Sun.

Trump said May “didn’t listen” to his views on how she should negotiate the UK’s exit from the European Union, but said that was “fine.”

“She should negotiate the best way she knows how, but it’s too bad what’s going on,” Trump said.

Trump loves Queen Elizabeth II

Ahead of his scheduled meeting with the monarch on Friday, he described the Queen as a “tremendous woman,” praising her ability to avoid embarrassing mistakes.

“She is a tremendous woman, I really look forward to meeting her, I think she represents her country so well. 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. My wife is a tremendous fan of hers,” Trump said.

“(Queen Elizabeth has) a great and beautiful grace about her. No, I look forward (to meeting her). My mother loved the Queen. My mother coming from Scotland, and she’d come back every year religiously, go to Scotland.

“My mother loved the Queen. She thought the Queen was tremendous. Any time the Queen was on television my mother wanted to watch it.”

President and Melania attended Blenheim Palace banquet

The President and first lady have landed at Blenheim Palace for a formal dinner hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May. But first, they received a ceremonial welcome by the British Army.

In a statement, the Army said the State Trumpeters of the Household Cavalry Band performed a “specially composed fanfare.” The bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh guards put on “a sunset ceremony of music and drill,” the Army said.
