US Embassy in London Warns Americans to 'Keep a Low Profile' Amid Trump Visit

Labour Party legislator Paul Flynn, who has criticized Mr. Trump in Parliament, says the USA leader has outraged Britons - and people around the world - with his harsh treatment of immigrants.

Rarely has a foreign leader been so mocked on an official visit - London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, a Muslim who has challenged Trump's worldview OK'd the balloon, which is an apt symbol of Trump's tempestuous relationship with Britain, traditionally the United States' closest ally.

That business-friendly Brexit proposal was agreed by her cabinet only last Friday after two years of wrangling since Britons voted to leave the bloc in a 2016 referendum.

Trump added that the U.K.is a "pretty hot spot", given the recent upheaval in the government there.

Trump pictured setting off to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Europe from Joint Base Andrews, Md., on Tuesday. "It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do, and doesn't express the opinion of the British people that I've met", he told the BBC's Today programme.

"I would say Brexit is Brexit, the people wanted to break it up so I would imagine this is what they will do".

Trump has always been a Brexit supporter and has expressed enthusiasm for a wide-ranging trade deal with Britain after it leaves the European Union, something heralded by eurosceptics as being one of the great benefits of exiting the bloc.

Evie, who's 26, is also an American living in the UK.

The Jameson in Hammersmith has rebranded itself The Trump Arms for the US President's visit.

"As two nations, we are safer, more prosperous and more creative when we work together and I am looking forward to this week's important discussions".

"I think they like me a lot in the UK", Trump said in Brussels.

"I think it's amusing".

"Boris Johnson's a friend of mine, he's been very nice to me, very supportive and maybe I'll speak to him when I get over there".

"And me mate said "If you call it the Trump Arms I'll organise the party".

Similar protests are planned on Thursday evening outside the USA ambassador's home at Regent's Park and in Scotland when Mr Trump visits on Saturday. But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Mr. Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to the USA leader's presence.

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.

A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire on Thursday, the venue for Trump's black-tie dinner with May on Thursday evening.

In a joint statement, Mr Leonard and Mr Harvie said: "For Donald Trump to travel to Scotland with public assistance and ease when his travel ban has caused outrage and despair around the world would simply not be acceptable".
