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

President Trump and the First Lady are expected to depart.

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

A guard of honour, formed of the Coldstream Guards, will give a Royal Salute and the USA national anthem will be played as the President walks up a red carpet during his visit to Windsor.

She said: "I think he means to put America first and I think he's been doing that and he's been very consistent with his campaign promises".

Leo Murray, an anti-Trump campaigner who is one of the "babysitters" of the balloon, said people in Scotland were "past masters" when it came to protesting against the president. "I like Boris Johnson, I've always liked him".

The demonstration is organised by 'Scotland United Against Trump.' It is to be noted that the US President is also expected to visit Scotland, where he owns a number of golf resorts, the day after his visit to London, read a statement by the Foreign Press Association.

Some Britons plan to give him a "fitting" reception with an oversized "Trump baby" balloon.

Mr and Mrs Trump will then join the Queen for tea at the Castle.

The protest will continue on July 14 when a "carnival of resistance" is scheduled to take place in Edinburgh, coinciding with Donald Trump's visit to the UK.


The couple will attend a gala dinner at Blenheim Palace out in the countryside on Thursday evening. The dinner will include 100 ministers and guests, including people from a variety of sectors.

Donald Trump will land in Britain after flying in from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

The US president has angered many in Britain in the last two years with a series of actions and pronouncements.

Trump's trip coincides with a tumultuous week for May when two senior ministers resigned in protest at her plans for trade with the European Union after Britain leaves next March.

President Trump on Tuesday inflamed tensions barely 48 hours before Air Force Ones touches down by saying Britain is "in turmoil".

He will be greeted by Scottish Secretary David Mundell, who has insisted the president's visit will be a chance for the country to "strengthen vital links" with one of its most important allies.

The largest demonstration is expected in central London on Friday where a giant "Trump baby" balloon will fly close to Parliament after being given the go-ahead by Mayor of London Sadiq Khan.

A campaign is also underway to get "American Idiot", a 2004 song by the USA punk rock band Green Day, to the top of the UK Singles Chart.
