In a bid to grab more attention at the start of the three-day state visit to Britain, Nancarrow also wrote "Oi Trump" and mowed a penis into another field, while other young climate activists prepared to join marches and protests in London.

President Trump urged Britain's next prime minister to "walk away" from trying to reach a deal to leave the European Union if Brussels doesn't give ground during negotiations over Brexit.

"You never know what you're going to get with Trump", said Professor Charles Kupchan, a Europe expert at the Council on Foreign Relations and Georgetown University professor who advised presidents Barack Obama and Bill Clinton on the National Security Council. "If you don't get a fair deal, you walk away".

Trump repeated his backing for those candidates to succeed May who have said Britain must leave on the due date of October 31 with or without a deal.

The comments came after he told The Sun he thought former foreign secretary Boris Johnson would make an "excellent" prime minister to take over from Mrs Theresa May, who is to resign on June 7.

Trump said it was a mistake to ignore Farage after his success last month in the European Parliament elections. He says: 'A lot of teachers are telling me they feel the funding per pupil isn't high enough'.

As they were leaving the room, the Duchess winked cheekily at the men who had just shaken hands with the President.

Theresa May will raise the issue of climate change with Donald Trump during his upcoming visit to the UK, Downing Street has told BBC News.

Mr Ruddy laughed off questions about protesters who believe Mr Trump is racist.

Also there was USA ambassador Woody Johnson, whose official residence, Winfield House in Regent's Park, will be the Trumps' accommodation during their visit.

Huawei will top talks in London after the British government appeared to defy Trump administration demands and allow the Chinese company a limited role in building 5G networks.

Trump's visit also invited protests over what London Mayor Sadiq Khan described as his "divisive behaviour", while opposition politicians are boycotting the banquet.

A spokesperson for the United Kingdom government said: "The prime minister has raised climate change with the president before and will do so again during his visit".

The second day will focus on politics, including a breakfast with business leaders, talks with May in 10 Downing Street, a news conference and a dinner at the US ambassador's residence.
