Donald Trump is arriving in Britain on Thursday afternoon for a four-day, informal "working" visit - and is bringing with him a massive, extravagant entourage.

He plans to bring "countless" Secret Service protection officers, military communications staff, members of the media, his doctor, and a personal chef, The Times' Matt Chorley reported, citing an unnamed diplomatic source.

The president typically travels with 13 journalists on his foreign trips, which include three wire reporters, two print reporters, four photographers, a three-person television crew, and a radio reporter, The Telegraph reported.

He will also bring one of the five military aides responsible for carrying a black leather briefcase containing top-secret information that would allow Trump to authorise a nuclear strike, nicknamed the "nuclear football." US presidents always travel with it.

While the exact size of Trump's entourage is not clear, 750 hotel rooms have been booked out to accommodate all of them, according to Chorley.

They will be using two planes and six helicopters, Chorley reported. Trump will be flying to the UK on his official jet, Air Force One.

He will also bring his official limo, a heavily armoured Cadillac sedan known as "The Beast." Trump showed North Korean Kim Jong Un the inside of the $US1.5 million car during their summit in Singapore last month.

This Couple's Travel Horror Story Is a Reminder to Never Put Your Passport in the Airplane Seat Pocket

  This Couple's Travel Horror Story Is a Reminder to Never Put Your Passport in the Airplane Seat Pocket Next time you board an international flight, double — no, triple — check that your passport is with you. Otherwise, you may run the risk of ruining your vacation, just like 27-year-old couple Lewis Mundy and Kimberley Floyd did. You see, according to the couple, they both put their passports in the seat pockets in front of them, buckled their seat belts, and settled in for the flight. Upon landing, the two stepped off the plane only to realize they both forgot their passports on board.

An unidentified former aide to 10 Downing Street told Chorley that Trump's planes were "massive," and that Britain's ones "look like Playmobil by comparison."

Former presidents also travelled with massive entourages during their past formal, state visits to Britain: Barack Obama brought 500 people, while George W. Bush brought 700, according to the BBC. Obama also brought "The Beast."

Thursday marks Trump's first time in Britain since becoming president. It was downgraded from a formal state visit to an informal "working" trip after millions of people threatened to protests against Trump and the Speaker of the House of Commons effectively banned Trump from visiting parliament over the president's "sexist and racist" views.

Nevertheless, Trump is scheduled to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, attend a black-tie dinner at Winston Churchill's birthplace, and hold a joint summit at the Prime Minister's countryside retreat.

Trump's UK trip comes after his visit to Helsinki and Brussels, where he is meeting with NATO leaders. On Thursday, NATO leaders agreed to increase their defence spending at Trump's behest.


Jimmy Kimmel responds to Trump's attack at rally: 'That never happened' .
President Donald Trump went on a tirade against late-night TV hosts like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon during a recent rally in June. Jimmy Kimmel, however, was on vacation with limited cell service. So he’s only now responding to the attacks. Trump claimed “no talent” Kimmel once stood “outside on the sidewalk” waiting for him before a show and even opened his car door. “I sad, ‘Does he do this to everybody, to his people?’ He does it for nobody,” the president told his supporters in West Columbia, South Carolina. “Right, including for you. I do it for nobody,” Kimmel replied. “That never happened,” the late-night personality reiterated. “It’s a funny thing,” he continued. “We all know, like even the people who like the president know he makes things up, but still it’s weird to hear him tell a lie that specifically involves you. All of a sudden you’re like, ‘Wait, no, he’s lying!'” Kimmel explained that he doesn’t even go to his guests’ dressing rooms to say hello before the show. “I like to greet the guests on stage,” he said. “I feel dumb saying hello to them and then saying hello again 10 minutes later.” Here’s how Kimmel remembers that meeting with Trump: “Donald Trump showed up one night outside our show banging on the backstage door. It was 2007. He had a half-finished bucket of chicken under his arm and he was screaming that he needed to use the bathroom. But unfortunately, there was someone in the bathroom. I believe it was Zach Braff who was in the bathroom. So Donald took a look around. He stuffed the remainder of the chicken in his jacket, he dropped his pants, he did his business in the bucket. That story is exactly as true as his was.
