Mr Trump and his wife Melania arrived at Stansted airport, where he was met by the UK's global trade secretary Liam Fox.
The president wore a black tuxedo for the occasion as he escorted his wife from the US ambassador's London residence in Regent's Park to the awaiting helicopter Marine One.
Khan's authorisation for the "angry baby" stunt has infuriated Trump supporters in Britain such as Brexit champion Nigel Farage, who called it an "insult".
And the US President himself has now broken his silence on the balloon.
London's first Muslim mayor says Friday that many major cities, including Paris, Brussels and Berlin, have suffered terrorism attacks but that Trump has chosen to only criticize him.
In an interview with British newspaper The Sun in which Trump also attacked Prime Minister Theresa May over her strategy for exiting the European Union, the president said that the queen had "never made a mistake" during her long reign.
On Thursday night, hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the US ambassador's residence where Trump was staying, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected on Friday. "And it's for President Trump to explain why he singled me as the mayor of London out and not the mayors of other cities and leaders of other cities". "He has done a bad job", he added.
A spokesman for the mayor said in a statement, "The mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms". "Look around. You go through certain areas that didn't exist ten or 15 years ago". "I think he is a great representative for your country". Instead, what had been an state visit was downgraded to a working visit, which means the Queen does not officially host the president and the first lady as she has done with previous US presidents.
The group describes itself as a "coalition of organizations and individuals joined forces to protest against Donald Trump's planned visit to the U.K".
Mr Trump had joked earlier this week that his meeting with Vladimir Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki on Monday "may be the easiest" part of his European trip.
Responding to this, he said: "If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal". Britons, he said, "like me a lot", the BBC reported.
