Americans warned to keep a low profile

Americans warned to keep a low profile

The blimp will fly over the British capital for two hours next Friday morning, during Trump's visit with Queen Elizabeth and Prime Minister Theresa May.

The US Embassy in London issued the alert ahead of Trump's arrival on Thursday after attending a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit.

"I have North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, I have the United Kingdom, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have (Vladimir Putin)", Trump said as he set off on his trip to Europe which includes a meeting with the Russian President in the Finnish capital Helsinki.

May appears to have seen off an immediate challenge to her leadership from malcontents within her Conservative Party but Trump's comments ahead of the trip - that Britain was "in somewhat turmoil" and that it was up to the people if she stayed in power - fanned the sense of political crisis.

An alert posted on the embassy's website Tuesday listed advice for any America who unexpectedly finds themselves caught up in an anti-Trump demonstration.




In light of what the embassy calls "events" and "demonstrations" that are "expected to attract large crowds", Americans should "exercise caution" if they find themselves "unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

Mt Trump refused to endorse Ms May as prime minister and heaped praise on his "friend" Boris Johnson a day after he quit as foreign secretary.

More than 50,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby although a counter-gathering to welcome him is also planned.

Robertson called President Trump "a threat to worldwide stability", and added that "he has a tenuous relationship with the truth".

Malin Baker Bogue, 28, who works in government relations and moved to Britain from the United States in 2015, said she was not a fan of Trump despite being a Republican but was still surprised by the anger he provoked. Coincidentally, Trump has chose to stay in London for only one night over his four-day visit, primarily avoiding the vibrant city.
