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

11 July 2018

Although politically and militarily Great Britain and the United States are some of each other's greatest allies, citizens of the Isle are not all that thrilled with President Trump as a representative of the US, which was a thought process furthered amongst British citizens after Trump made comments on militant attacks in Britain, as well as his retweeting of a far-right U.K. party's blatantly anti-Muslim Twitter post.

Trump lands in Britain on Thursday following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels where he chided Germany and other European nations for failing to contribute enough to defence spending.

It urges demonstrators to 'be prepared to take to the streets in the most incredible protest in our history'.

Some 50,000 people are expected to attend a protest against Trump's visit on Friday (July 13)-just one of several demonstrations that organizers have promised will be a "carnival of resistance."

London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has had a number of social media spats with the president, gave permission for a blimp portraying Donald Trump as an orange, snarling baby to be flown over parliament.

"Numerous demonstrations are planned" from July 12 to July 14, with a majority of protests occurring in central London on Friday, the embassy said in an alert Tuesday.

LONDON, July 11 (Reuters) - Britain on Wednesday geared up for the arrival of Donald Trump just hours after the USA president waded into the Brexit crisis gripping Prime Minister Theresa May's government and portrayed the closest US ally in Europe as a country in turmoil.

The organizers continued on, "BUT people have been SO generous and supportive that we now have WAY more money than we can sensibly spend just on Trump's United Kingdom visit in July!"

After the visit, Trump will decamp to Finland for a one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16.

Protests are also planned in more than 30 towns and cities around the country, including Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast.

Mt Trump refused to endorse Ms May as prime minister and heaped praise on his "friend" Boris Johnson a day after he quit as foreign secretary.

Mr Khan said he supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority, adding that it was not for him to be a "censor".
