Americans in United Kingdom warned to keep 'low profile' during Trump visit

The former sister publication of the Independent the i Thursday 5th July 2018

But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversize balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to Trump's presence.

Its advice to USA citizens was to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

But as President Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday, he will find plenty of people who think it is more important to oppose him than it is to nurture USA -U.K. ties.

On the same day, protests against his visit have been planned outside US Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park where President Trump is reported to be staying overnight.

The two leaders will hold talks at Mrs May's country residence of Chequers where Russia, Brexit and the Middle East will top the agenda.

"It is in the interests of the U.K.to stand up and take a firm moral stance", said Zoe Gardner, a researcher and spokesperson of the Stop Trump Coalition, which is organizing protests this week in cities across the country.

U.S. President Donald Trump checks time prior to a dinner at the Art and History Museum at the Parc du Cinquantenaire during the NATO Summit in Brussels, Belgium July 11, 2018.

Meanwhile, other activists in London have been quickly raising money to launch their own balloon of Khan, in protest of crime levels in the capital.

After his royal appointment, the president and Mrs Trump will travel on to Scotland.

Mr Trump tweeted of his visit cancellation: "Reason I canceled my trip to London is that I am not a big fan of the Obama Administration having sold perhaps the best located and finest embassy in London for "peanuts", only to build a new one in an off location for 1.2 billion dollars". Thousands of people are expected to turn out.

"Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there".

That afternoon he will meet the Queen at Windsor Castle before heading to Scotland for a private holiday.

British law requires any petition supported by more than 100,000 people to be considered for parliamentary debate, even though there was no serious attempt to prohibit Trump from coming to Britain.

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead, from the National Police Coordination Centre, said: "Police forces are working together on a significant, multi-faceted security operation supporting the presidential visit to the UK".

Then on Monday, he will be off to Helsinki to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
