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

"Donald Trump likes to pose as an global tough guy, but it looks like he's too scared to face protesters in London", the group Stand Up to Trump declared in a statement, alluding to the US president's reported plans to steer clear of the streets of London.

Most of the protests will take place that day in central London, the US officials said, with some occurring the days before and after.

"The protest against Trump will be a real celebration of the diversity that we love in the United Kingdom - and will give a strong signal that his message of hate and division is not welcome in this country".

Mr Trump raised eyebrows when he went out of his way to praise Boris Johnson after resigning as foreign secretary, while insisting it was up to the British people whether Mrs May remained in office or not.

Securing a U.S. -UK deal post-Brexit is something both Trump and May's government have heralded as being a major benefit of leaving the EU.

The Republicans Overseas UK group expects up to 100 people to attend its event on Friday evening to show there are people who are happy about the trip, chairwoman Sarah Elliott said.

"This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".

The sad news for Trump Baby is that Trump himself apparently won't be spending much time in London itself and is unlikely to see his inflated, infantile likeness in person.

"But from the public, the welcome will be far from warm", he added saying there would be protests across the country against Trump's "abysmal record on human rights, his repugnant attitude towards women and his disgusting treatment of minorities".

The US Embassy has told citizens to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent" on Friday.

Meanwhile, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has granted permission for a giant inflatable figure depicting Mr Trump as a baby to fly over Westminster for two hours on the second day of the president's visit.

After arriving on Thursday afternoon, president Trump and the First Lady will travel straight to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire for a black-tie dinner with Theresa May and 100 guests and ministers.

The two leaders will hold talks at the Prime Minister's country residence of Chequers where Russia, Brexit and the Middle East will top the agenda.

On the final day of his visit, he is likely to head for the golf course - Turnberry - which he owns in Scotland, before he jets back to the United States.
