give her a certain amount of -- i gave her suggestion, not advice. >> after that news conference th president and prime minister traveled to windsor castle where they had tea with the queen and checked out the troops. the president will snt the weekend at his resort in scotland. some of the highs and lows from mr.trump's first critics to our country's closest ally. >> nbc's nillly is joining us live from london. bill, let's start with the protests across i know they were expecting large crowds. were they expecting tm to be this large. >> yeah, good evening, wendy. yes, by and large they were. we knew that tens of thousands of people would come out. there will be no official people given by the police, but i think the organizers say it was more th 100,000, and they certainly clogged central london and the
area around trafalgar square. it was in fact the biggest protest against the visit of not just any amerin president but any president in the uk and thae includes protest against soviet leaders in the 1970 s against chinese leaders. donald trump is by and large the least popular american president in the 20th or 21st century here, and he threw a political grenade here before to the talks with theresa may even began day, because as you say there was an interview published overnight in "the sun" newspaper, britain's mt red newspaper in which he heavily criticized theresa may as prime minister, czed her negotiations to get britain out and saidropean union she had ignored his advice and even suggested an alternative prime minister, a minister who has just walked away from
theresa may's government so this was, well, an extraordinary interview. it was the equivalent of walking into a dinner bat you'vn invited to and kicking over the table and insulting the host, and then it equally extraordinary at that news h conference showered praise on theresa may and suggested this a trade deal betweenai br and the u.s. was very likely and said c i don'te how you conduct brexit as long as there's a trade deal at the end of it so a really dizzying 2 urs for those people in britain who are indeed watching and eating with donald trump. the meeting this morning overran and kept the queen waiting for n minutes. he'll be heading to helsinki for the important summit withti vladimir but this has been a really contentious tour

temperature sensor is a little bit off. tomorr a great day to get out in your garden with temperatures to start off around 70 if you're going to get out there in the know that it's going to be hot around 92 degrees. 7:00 a.m. on sunday. it's mig and 73 means it won't be that bad, but by sunday ulafternoon i can't out an isolated shower or thunderstorm. otherwise it's humid on sunday. that 94 feels more like 98 to 9r s. i would say saturday is the better day to get out in the garden or cut the lawn. the experts at the garden center tell us when you're watering shrubs an trees and probably had to do so pause we've been so dry the past two week soak the root area and consider using ae soaker h to give plants a good drink. humidity levels tomorrow. i'm still calling it comfortable for mid-july. sunday we're in betwe comfortable and mig, and monda the humidity levels continue to rise getting near the oppressive area. monday and tuesday it's more like 100 degrees out there,
so if you're leaded t down nats park monday or tuesday keep that in mind. even as the events get under way at about 8:00 p.m. hot and muggy down there. i think the home run derby on monday is going to be just fin o bu tuesday keeping a very close eye on the all-star game andaybe a delay with that game. otherwise temperatures there in the mid-90 as we take a look at your storm team 4 ten-day forecast. take a look. the chance for showers on monday during the afternoon and evening hours is really north and west of washington. that's where the best chance is at ast, and then at about 30%. on tuesday the chance is really areawide with a cold front and at about 50% we really do need the rain so hopefully that materializes on tuesday. wednesday and thursday lower humidity, and pretty comfortable. temperatures in the upper 1 as, womeny and leon. >> thanks, amelia. >> hundred of metro bus and train operators are showing up for work on purpose a next ouran trortation reporter adam tuss tells us about the growing
