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

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

This remark came following comments Trump made about London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of the London Bridge terrorist attack, which killed seven.

"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 USA 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 said.

The embassy advised Americans in the country to be aware of their surroundings, "keep a low profile", exercise caution if large gatherings are present, and monitor local media reports for updates.

A Facebook event called "Trump not welcome - make noise as he arrives" plans to protest right outside where the president will be staying - the US Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park - when he checks in on the evening of Jul 12.

That afternoon he will meet the Queen at Windsor Castle before heading to Scotland for a private holiday.

While the activist would not reveal where the balloon baby would be travelling to, its destination will likely coincide with a location on Trump's own itinerary during his United Kingdom visit.

President Donald Trump speaks with reporters before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House, Tuesday, July 10, 2018, in Washington.

Murray would also like to see Trump Baby go on tour in the US, but said he feared Trump supporters would "shoot it out of the air".

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump will head to England, where Prime Minister Theresa May's government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union.

Relations between Britain and Russia are at a post-Cold War low since May blamed the Kremlin for the poisoning of former Russian agent Sergei Skripal with a Soviet-era military nerve agent in March.

"Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all".
