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

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

Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby.

But any good vibrations from that moment soon dissipated when Trump, the same day, announced plans to ban migrants from seven Muslim-majority countries - a decision that drew fierce global criticism and appeared to blindside May.

The band will play the Liberty Fanfare, Amazing Grace and the National Emblem march before Trump and Melania will sit down with around 100 business leaders from the worlds of financial services, travel, creative sector, food and drink sector, engineering, tech, infrastructure, pharma and defence.

But there are still plenty of detractors, as loudly demonstrated by a passenger in auto driving past the U.S. flag-adorned pub who shouted "F*** Trump", to which Mr Smyth chuckled.

The President is also due to travel to Scotland, where he owns two golf courses and Scotland's interim police chief has said more than 5,000 officers would be needed for to cover the trip, including specialist riot and armed units.

On Friday, demonstrators are expected to gather near Chequers, the Prime Minister's country residence, where May and Trump will hold a working lunch.

He arrives about a year and a half after Prime Minister Theresa May invited him for a state visit, an invitation that was met intense opposition in the United Kingdom - nearly 2 million people signed a petition to rescind the invite.

After he was invited previous year, more than 1.86 million people signed a petition saying Trump should not be given a state visit because it could embarrass the queen and thousands of police will also be on duty with large protests expected.

When asked directly if Trump would meet Johnson, U.S. Ambassador in London Woody Johnson told BBC Radio: "I'm not sure".

The US president appears unpopular in Britain, where his brash style and hardline "America First" policies have caused consternation across the political spectrum and society.

The U.S. embassy has also responded in kind, issuing a warning to American citizens to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution" during Trump's visit.

"For a United States president who retweets far-right Britain First propaganda, insults Londoners at times of tragedy, and refuses to condemn white supremacist marches at home, this insult is well deserved" said Labour MP David Lammy.

On Friday, May and Trump will go to to watch a joint counter-terrorism exercise by British and United States special forces at a military base.

"It's a disastrous and divisive time, and Trump is very much part of that", he said.

The President and the First Lady will attend a dinner, hosted by May, at Blenheim Palace - the ancestral home of Winston Churchill - on Thursday evening.

Trump then heads to Windsor Castle later Friday for tea with Queen Elizabeth II.
