Donald Trump visit: How Americans living in the United Kingdom feel

The former sister publication of the Independent the i Thursday 5th July 2018

Large protests are anticipated throughout the trip, including a plan to fly a large balloon over Parliament depicting President Trump as an angry baby.

Opponents to the controversial United States leader have threatened mass protests but Mr Trump is expected to avoid areas such as central London where demonstrators are likely to gather.

Mr Trump has a White House doctor at his side at all times and one of five rotating military aides who carry the nuclear "football" - equipped with communication tools and a book with prepared war plans.

"We've seen the rise of the far right in Britain and Europe, and the one lesson we should learn from history is that when racists and the far right mobilize, you fight back, you don't let them march and rise to power".

Trump heads to the United Kingdom after this week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, at which he slammed allies for not spending more on defense.

On Friday, Trump will meet May and her newly appointed Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt at the prime minister's countryside retreat, Chequers.

Days later, thousands marched on Parliament to protest the decision to offer a Trump full state visit to Britain, and 1.8 million people signed a petition saying the invitation should be canceled because he might embarrass the Queen. We talk about Trump and Angela Merkel because it's "difficult" " said Leslie Vinjamuri, head of the USA and Americas program at the Chatham House think tank.

A brief visit to the newly-relocated US Embassy at Nine Elms in south-west London is also believed to be on the cards. During a press conference in Brussels after the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Mr.

He's one of the most divisive presidents in USA history.

The US Embassy has warned American citizens to keep a low profile during the visit in case protests turn violent.

Assistant Chief Constable Chris Shead, from the National Police Coordination Centre, said: "Police forces are working together on a significant, multi-faceted security operation supporting the presidential visit to the UK".

"It's really kind of irrelevant to what we're trying to do, and it certainly doesn't express the opinion of the British people that I've met", Ambassador Johnson said of the balloon.

The US Ambassador to London, Woody Johnson, insisted last week that the President's itinerary was not intentionally designed for him to avoid encountering throngs of protesters.

"Donald Thump!" read the tabloid's front-page headline after the President told reporters that Britain was "in somewhat turmoil" and that the summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin may be the "easiest" part of his European trip.

Workmen construct fences, before the US presidential visit at the end of the week, around the USA ambassador's residence in Regent's Park in London, Britain, July 10, 2018. Finally, Trump will meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, before traveling to his golf course in Scotland for the remainder of the weekend.
