Americans in United Kingdom warned to keep 'low profile' during Trump visit

Protestors shut down the Dan Ryan Expressway during an anti-violence protest calling for common sense gun laws

Nigel Farage ripped London Mayor Sadiq Khan for allowing a large blimp featuring the effigy of an infant Donald Trump to be flown over the city while the US president visits.

According to the Mirror, the US Embassy urged its citizens to remain vigilant during Trump's two-day visit beginning July 12, instructing Americans to "be aware of your surroundings" and watch local news for updates as the Commander-in-Chief tours the country. Bilateral talks with United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May will happen at her country home in Chequers, and not at the prime minister's London residence, at 10 Downing Street, as is traditional.

Its advice to US citizens was to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

The embassy said these demonstrations were expected to attract large crowds and cause road closures. Trump is expected to arrive after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium and will meet with Prime Minister Theresa May, meet Queen Elizabeth at Windsor Castle, and will attend a black-tie dinner at the home of former World War Two leader Winston Churchill.

Trump arrives in Britain on Thursday after a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and thousands of protesters are expected to join demonstrations during his visit, including plans to fly a blimp over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby. This will be Trump's first visit to England as president. "His city operations team have met with the organizers and have given them permission to use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp".

Trump's schedule will largely keep him out of central London and it seems unlikely that the United States president will come close enough to Westminster to see the blimp.

Mr Khan was asked if he would have endorsed a giant black baby blimp of former president Barack Obama in protest during his presidency, or an image depicting Mr Khan as a pig despite that being offensive to Muslims.
