Trump's United Kingdom visit has high potential for embarrassment

An alert posted on the embassy's website Tuesday listed advice for any America who unexpectedly finds themselves caught up in an anti-Trump demonstration.

The U.S. Embassy has warned U.S. citizens to keep a low profile during the visit because of the protests, the sort of warning usually issued in more volatile locations.

The balloon is already due to fly over Parliament in London on Friday to coincide with the president's visit to the United Kingdom.

While Trump on Friday is having lunch with Prime Minister Theresa May at her Chequers country estate or sipping tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, tens of thousands of demonstrators - maybe more - are planning to gather in London's Trafalgar Square to protest the president and his policies.

Last month, Labour member of Parliament Gavin Shuker ran down a list of objections to Trump: the separation of migrant families and detention of children; the US departure from the United Nations' Human Rights Council; the USA president's praise for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Trump will spend Thursday night in London at Winfield House, the official residence of U.S. Ambassador to Britain Robert "Woody" Johnson.

Trump has done more damage to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in months than Russian Federation has in decades Trump takes credit for increased defense spending by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but says "it isn't almost enough" Trump questions how Russian Federation probe can "proceed" given Federal Bureau of Investigation agent's private comments MORE on Thursday downplayed expected protests during his visit to the United Kingdom, saying he believes its citizens "like me a lot".

It has been dubbed Storm Trump and the country is braced for a United States presidential visit that has split opinion like never before.


The antipathy between Trump and segments of the British public started during the 2016 presidential campaign, when Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States.

Trump's itinerary will keep him out of central London on Friday, when large protests are planned. The proposal was debated in parliament where Trump was heavily criticized.

On Friday evening, Trump and the First Lady whisk up to Scotland for a weekend of golf and relaxation - and more protests outside his resort.

Donald Trump has raised doubts over the UK's handling of the Brexit negotiations suggesting the Prime Minister was not delivering what the people had voted for in the European Union referendum.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has come under fire for his approval of a blimp featuring US President Donald Trump dressed as a baby.

Its appearance in central London was approved by the Greater London Authority.

Organisers said they will transport the balloon to Scotland overnight, and will fly it elsewhere on Saturday even if their Ayrshire application is turned down.

Later, Trump will take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, a home to the royals for 1,000 years, part of a tour created to keep him away from protesters.
