He had a breakfast meeting with Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the US ambassador's residence in London, and separate talks with French President Emmanuel Macron.Later, he will join other world leaders for a reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by the Queen.
It is his third trip to the UK as president - after two trips that were highly controversial and resulted in widespread protests.
Much attention will be paid to whether he goes against the advice of his White House officials and wades into the election campaign, having previously shown support for Brexit, Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson.
On his visit in 2018, groups of placard wavers set up at the US ambassador's residence and at the palace's gates.
Before he even arrived in the UK, Labour's Dennis Skinner branded the president a "fascist" in the House of Commons.
Also his visit in June 2019 was accompanied by protests and tension leading to unprecedented security measures and less public display.
Things had started badly even before the trip got under way when he called London mayor Sadiq Khan a "stone cold loser", crossing a diplomatic line before he'd even stepped off the plane.
At his first news conference he suggested the NHS may be up for grabs in a trade deal and discussed successors to Mrs May as she stood next to him.
Trump is being seen as a potential liability for Boris Johnson in the campaign, amid Labour’s accusations that a US-UK trade deal will lead to an NHS sell-off and higher drug prices for Britons. Rowena Mason writes that Johnson will seek to play down his relationship with the president in light of those accusations.
Trump will be among Nato leaders attending a banquet with the Queen tonight at Buckingham Palace. NHS nurses and doctors will lead a “Hands off our NHS” protest starting at Trafalgar Square then heading down the Mall to arrive at Canada Gate, opposite the palace.
Also the family of Harry Dunn is putting up more pressure during the visit of US President. Harry Dunn's parents will join anti-Donald Trump protest outside Buckingham Palace as the US President insists he is trying to 'work something out' over their son's death, titles the Daily Mail.
Harry Dunn died after being hit by an American motorist who then fled back to the US escaping justice having diplomatic immunity.
Asked for his thoughts on Harry's death at a press conference this morning Trump said: 'I had his parents up and they're lovely people. I spoke to the woman who works for the government and has diplomatic immunity and we're trying to work something out.'
Harry’s parents issues a statement today underlining that 'the actions of President Trump and his national security adviser Robert O'Brien in recalling the Sacoolas family after Anne Sacoolas took Harry's life are nothing short of an attack on the rule of law, Britain's right as a sovereign nation to impose its own laws and to enforce them against anyone who breaks them.
'Anne Sacoolas has admitted her culpability for the accident and thus is a serious criminal fugitive on the run.
'That fact cannot be overlooked as President Trump visits the UK whilst Anne Sacoolas remains in the USA evading justice.
'It is notable that the country's sovereign, the Queen of England is hosting Mr Trump at Buckingham Palace, whilst this gross insult against everything that she and the country stands for.
