The Jameson in Kensington has been transformed for the politician's time in the city, with stars and stripes flags adorning the front of the venue, which also proudly displays his name.

Speaking to the Independent newspaper, landlord Damien Smyth explained: ''We have to have huge respect for this man, and for the sacrifices he has made. He didn't need to become president. He was already a billionaire.

''But he sacrificed his lifestyle, he gave up a huge amount of freedom to help his country and help the world.''

Mr. Smyth also hit out at critics planning protests against the outspoken and controversial world leader during his visit.

He argued: ''We can't have this carry on where all the American people see of their president's visit is 50,000 people demonstrating against the man they democratically elected.''
