Americans In London Urged To 'Keep A Low Profile' During Trump Visit

Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and thousands of protesters are expected to join demonstrations during his visit, including plans to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

Trump has clashed in the past with May - even though she is a conservative who shares his view that defense spending should be raised - and with her predecessor, David Cameron, who challenged Trump's anti-Muslim campaign stance as "divisive, stupid and wrong".

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 USA departure from the United Nations' Human Rights Council; the US president's praise for North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Donald Trump to face many protests in his visit to Britain.

As well as meeting the Queen at Windsor, also on Mr Trump's schedule is a journey to Scotland where he owns two golf courses and will spend the weekend.

American nationals have been told to be careful on the streets of London during planned demonstrations against Donald Trump later this week.


"If the president wants to do something, we'll make it possible".

It includes "keep a low profile" and 'exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent'.

The 36-year-old, who described Mr Trump's rhetoric as not "entirely to my taste", said she believes he is a proud American nationalist who has generally stuck to the pledges he made to voters.

On Friday, Trump will bypass the mass protests in London as he heads to May's country residence, Chequers, for bilateral talks, to be followed by tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle in the afternoon.

So why are people so unhappy this time and why didn't Mr Trump get the state visit treatment Britain offered to Robert Mugabe?

Equally, she said people have a right to protest against policies they do not agree with.


Nearly all of Trump's activities will be outside the city: He'll meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, not Buckingham Palace.

On the NHS: Trump said it was "going broke and not working".

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.

Similar protests are planned on Thursday evening outside the U.S. ambassador's home at Regent's Park and in Scotland when Mr Trump visits on Saturday.

"When he's here, he'll give, but I think when he walks away he will very quickly forget what the visit was about", Vinjamuri said.
