US Embassy warns Americans to ‘keep low profile’ during Donald Trump visit

The US Embassy has warned Americans in London to ‘keep a low profile’ during Donald Trump’s visit amid plans for a huge protest in the capital.

The embassy, which the president declined to open himself, has issued guidance to Americans living in the UK about protests planned during the visit from the 12th to the 14th of July.

Shortly before boarding Air Force One for a trip to Europe and Russia, President Trump voiced the hope to meet former foreign secretary Boris Johnson despite the fact he has no role in government since he quit his post on Monday.

Asked if Prime Minister Theresa May can stay in power, the US President said: "That’s up to the people.

"I get along with her very well, I have very good relations. That’s certainly up to the people, not up to me."

The US President spoke as he set off with First Lady Melania for his first official working visit to Britain.

He will clash with allies at the Nato summit in Brussels tonight before arriving in the UK tomorrow for a lavish black tie banquet.

The advice to take is:

• Be aware of your surroundings.
• Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent.
• Keep a low profile.
• Monitor local media for updates.

The 45th US president will spend just one night in London, before jetting off for two nights north of the border. He will also meet the Queen at Windsor Castle on Friday.

The exact details of the Scottish visit are not yet known, however it is widely expected that Trump will play a round of golf at one of the two courses he owns there.

He will fly on to Helsinki on Sunday ahead of a summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

The UK visit of Trump has been dubbed a ‘working visit’ with plans for a full state visit kicked into the long grass by Number 10.

An enormous inflatable Donald Trump baby has been granted permission to fly above London during the visit.

London mayor Sadiq Khan’s Greater London Authority last week approved a request for the blimp to take to the skies this weekend.

It came after thousands of people signed a petition calling on the council to grant permission, and a crowdfunding campaign raised more than £16,000 to get the protest off the ground.

It’s flight will coincide with the ‘Stop Trump’ March in central London on Friday, July 13th.

Donald Trump’s has come in for significant criticism for his hardline anti-immigration policies, his language towards women and his defence of neo-Nazis.
