Trump dodges London protests for tea with Queen Elizabeth

The demonstrators plan to loft a large blimp-like balloon over the skies beside Westminster Palace, depicting a bronzed "Trump Baby" in diapers, clutching a mobile phone.

Tomorrow, more than 50,000 are expected to protest against the United States president in central London, where Mr Trump will largely stay clear of.

But any good vibrations from that moment soon dissipated when Trump, the same day, announced plans to ban migrants from seven Muslim-majority countries - a decision that drew fierce worldwide criticism and appeared to blindside May.

The on-off visit of Donald Trump to the United Kingdom is finally happening - but that doesn't mean the controversy has stopped.

"We are confident that there will be huge demonstrations against Trump wherever he visits", said Chris Nineham, of the Stop the War Coalition, which is helping to stage the so-called "carnival of protest".

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.

Over 50,000 people have signed up for a protest on Trafalgar Square in central London against the Trump visit, which will include a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II and possibly even a round of golf at his Turnberry course in Scotland. "Luckily tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands, will be flooding to London on Friday, July 13 to march against him".

The U.S. president's brash style and hardline "America First" policies have caused consternation across Britain's political spectrum and society.

He's one of the most divisive presidents in U.S. history.

Vrsaljko hoping to be fit for World Cup semi-final
Walker also urged the country - in such divisive times - to come together and keep the feeling going. So to those who had Croatia winning, congrats.


The US Embassy has told citizens to "keep a low profile" and "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent" on Friday.

"I get along with her very well, I have very good relations".

Blimp organizer Leo Murray said it had been created to speak to Trump "in a language that he understands, which is personal insults".

On Friday he will visit PM Theresa May at Chequers, set to be followed by a meeting with Her Majesty The Queen at Windsor Castle.

A barrage of nationwide protests will greet US President Donald Trump's four-day trip to Britain from Thursday, with organisers hoping to stage one of the country's biggest demonstrations in decades following a series of diplomatic spats.

Labour Party legislator Paul Flynn, who has criticized Trump in Parliament, says Trump has outraged Britons - and people around the world - with his harsh treatment of immigrants.

May has had to defend Trump's visit in the face of fiery criticism from opposition lawmakers.

A Facebook event called "Trump not welcome - make noise as he arrives" plans to protest right outside where the president will be staying - the US Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park - when he checks in on the evening of Jul 12.
