Americans in UK warned to keep ‘low profile’ during Trump visit

The US Embassy in London has warned Americans in the British capital to keep a low profile during Donald Trump’s visit later this week in case violent protests break out against the American president.

Thousands of Britons have promised to welcome Trump with a “carnival of protests” when he lands on Thursday in the UK on his first state visit to the country.

The protesters are also planning to fly a blimp over the British parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby.

Many Britons see Trump as crude, volatile and opposed to their values on a range of issues, Presstv Reported.

More than 50,000 people have so far signed up to join protests against Trump in London.

“Numerous demonstrations are being planned for July 12 to 14, 2018, surrounding the visit of the President of the United States to the United Kingdom,” the US embassy said in the alert on its website.

“Several of the events are expected to attract large crowds and there will be road closures in connection with those events.”

The embassy advised US citizens to “keep a low profile” and “exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent”.

Trump will arrive in Britain after the NATO summit in Belgium and will stay overnight at the US ambassador’s residence in Regent’s Park, London, where a high metal security fence was erected outside.

Trump and his wife, Melania, will then attend a dinner for 100 guests at Blenheim Palace, Oxfordshire.

Organizers of the Bring the Noise rally have asked protesters to bring “pots and pans out of the kitchen ... and on to the streets, banging to show our disapproval and claiming our political voice in public space.”

Stop Trump is the title of another rally in London which will also start outside the BBC’s headquarters and end in Trafalgar Square. Organizers say tens of thousands are expected to attend.
