Americans In London Urged To 'Keep A Low Profile' During Trump Visit

On the United States embassy: Trump cancelled his first planned visit earlier this year, saying the embassy's move from Grosvenor Square in Mayfair district to an "off location" at Nine Elms, south of the Thames, was a "bad deal".

"We've seen the rise of the far right in Britain and Europe, and the one lesson we should learn from history is that when racists and the far right mobilize, you fight back, you don't let them march and rise to power". "It seems so un-American".

In recent months, the president has bickered with British officials over his tweets and comments, complicating his relationship with one of America's closest allies.

Ahead of Mr Trump's visit, Mrs May said: "As two nations - we are safer, more prosperous and more creative when we work together and I am looking forward to this week's important discussions".

The Stop Trump Coalition accused the president of being "too scared to face protestors".

Any yet Britain has entertained some equally controversial world leaders before him.

While the many thousands are expected to line the streets and protest against Trump, politicians have become involved too.

And with a giant "Trump Baby" balloon set to fly in the air over multiple demonstrations, USA officials urged Americans to "keep a low profile" in the English capital.

A "responsible government" has to prepare for a variety of outcomes in the negotiations, "including a no deal". Boris Johnson has done the right thing... finally.

Amid reports that the government is working to bring a major police presence to the demonstrations, Amnesty International warned British authorities against attempting to stamp out freedom of expression in an effort to "appease their visitors". That led roughly 500,000 people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from entering the Britain. That includes this week's resignations of members of the Cabinet and Parliament over May's proposals to keep some agreements intact after leaving the European Union next year. Trump called for an IQ test between him and the mayor to determine who's smarter.

Following the departure of senior figures, including foreign minister Boris Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis, the political atmosphere is febrile.

At 5.30pm, there will be a protest at Regent's Park, outside the US Ambassador's residence where the US President is staying overnight.

Upon Trump's arrival he will also be welcomed by a giant inflatable "Baby Trump" balloon which will be flown near the Houses of Parliament.

From there he will be driven to Blenheim Palace for dinner.

Theresa May will then meet with Trump for bilateral talks at the Prime Minister's country retreat at Chequers.

Over a lunch of Dover sole, lamb and lemon meringue pie, the leaders will discuss Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.
