Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent.

Stripped of all the pomp of a full state visit, it seems that Trump will largely avoid the streets of London by meeting the PM at her country residence at Chequers, as well as the Queen at Windsor Castle. The first Labour Live event has been organised by the Labour Party. "So instead of 1000 tiny balloons, we have ordered a half-size Trump Baby created to be filled with air - he's made from thicker plastic so he's a lot less fragile than the big boy - meaning he can join in the protests and knock about with people in the crowds".

When US President Donald Trump visits the United Kingdom on Friday, his welcome party will include the Prime Minister, Her Majesty the Queen, 200,000 angry protesters, and a 20-foot inflatable effigy of himself as a baby.

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

"Several of the events are expected to attract large crowds and there will be road closures in connection with those events".

"Numerous demonstrations are planned" from July 12 to July 14, with a majority of protests occurring in central London on Friday, the embassy said in an alert Tuesday.

Trump will travel by helicopter once there, making it unlikely he'll see protests firsthand.

Trump also said he might speak to former Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, who quit along with Brexit minister David Davis over May's plans for a business-friendly Brexit which was only agreed by her cabinet last Friday after two years of wrangling.

The organizers also said that their crowdfunding was so successful that not only will the blimp fly for Trump's visit but will also be spotted in other worldwide locales.

Issuing a demonstration alert ahead of the presidential trip, the embassy urged people to keep a low profile as protests span three days.
