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.
