US Embassy Warns Americans To Keep ‘Low Profile’ During Trump UK Visit

  • The Trump Baby blimp is due to fly near Parliament on Friday

On Friday, even the mayor of London joined the fun and gave plans to fly a giant blimp showing President Trump as a diapered baby the go-ahead.

Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf has urged protesters to remain peaceful after being briefed by senior officers at Police Scotland on how the force is preparing for the arrival of Mr Trump and expected demonstrations.

The visit will largely avoid the British capital, as President Trump will meet Theresa May at her country residence instead, and the Queen at Windsor Castle.

Mr Trump sparked a backlash when he tweeted: "At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack and Mayor of London says there is "no reason to be alarmed!"

In what will likely plunge the already fraught US-UK "special relationship" into further doubt, the US Embassy in London has felt the need to warn its own citizens over upcoming protests against Donald Trump's visit this week.

In a statement on the U.S. embassy website, warns USA citizens to "be aware of your surroundings [and] exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

"Several of the events are expected to attract large crowds and there will be road closures in connection with those events", the embassy said.

Sadiq Khan supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority to allow the 20ft inflatable, dubbed "Trump Baby" to rise above Parliament Square Gardens for two hours on Friday morning while the USA president is in London.

But Trump is unlikely to see many of those who have mobilized to protest against his visit.

"Numerous demonstrations are planned" from July 12 to July 14, with a majority of protests occurring in central London on Friday, the embassy said in an alert Tuesday.

Trump is set to arrive in Britain this Thursday, July 12, following North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings and as part of a greater tour around Europe, meeting with various different groups and delegates.

Trump has long voiced his support for Brexit, saying it was part of a global uprising that ultimately thrust him to power, and he was at his Scottish golf resort the day after Britons voted to leave the European Union, saying the outcome was a "great thing".

Already his visit has triggered the largest United Kingdom police mobilization since 2011, the Guardian reported.
