Trump is expected to face major protests during his trip to Britain, including a giant inflatable image of him as a crying baby to be flown near parliament on Friday. She's planning to attend anti-Trump protests.

The band will play the Liberty Fanfare, Amazing Grace and the National Emblem march before Trump and Melania will sit down with around 100 business leaders from the worlds of financial services, travel, creative sector, food and drink sector, engineering, tech, infrastructure, pharma and defence.

Trump will then spend a private weekend in Scotland with his wife, where he owns two golf resorts.

On Friday he will be given a demonstration of the UK's military capabilities and integrated UK-US military training before travelling to Chequers for "substantive bilateral talks", to include foreign policy issues including Russian Federation, trade, Brexit, and the Middle East.

"It is in the interests of the U.K.to stand up and take a firm moral stance", said Zoe Gardner, a researcher and spokesperson of the Stop Trump Coalition, which is organizing protests this week in cities across the country.

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

Firebrand politician and Trump ally Nigel Farage labelled the move "the biggest insult to a sitting US President ever" but others have welcomed the playful rebuke.


While Trump on Friday is having lunch with Prime Minister Theresa May at her Chequers country estate or sipping tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, tens of thousands of demonstrators - maybe more - are planning to gather in London's Trafalgar Square to protest the president and his policies.

The U.S. embassy has also responded in kind, issuing a warning to American citizens to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution" during Trump's visit. "That's certainly up to the people, not up to me", said Trump.

For supporters, Trump and Brexit offer the prospect of breaking free from what they see as obsolete institutions and rules that have weakened the United States and its allies relative to competitors such as China.

A YouGov poll on Wednesday showed 77 percent of Britons had an unfavorable opinion of Trump and just 50 percent thought his visit should go ahead.

"I think that's absolutely disgusting", Eugene Bibby, who runs a domestic appliance fix shop in Tommyfield Market in Oldham, told Fox News about the balloon.

On the same day, protests against his visit have been planned outside US Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park where President Trump is reported to be staying overnight.

The US embassy in London suggests he's not the only one who should do so: It told US citizens in Britain today (July 10) to "keep a low profile" for the duration of his trip-and to be aware of their surroundings.
