Embassy warns Americans to keep a 'low profile' during Trump visit

Khan has criticized Trump repeatedly over the president's political views, saying earlier this year that Trump is "not welcome" in London.

It urges demonstrators to 'be prepared to take to the streets in the most incredible protest in our history'.

In anticipation of the massive protests planned for President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom on Thursday, the U.S. Embassy has warned Americans to "keep a low profile" in the English capital.

A large baby blimp caricature of Mr Trump is set to be flown at Parliament Square on Friday morning, ahead of a series of further gatherings including an anti-Trump and anti-Tory 12-hour "DJ marathon party" in Soho, and a march at Cavendish Square Gardens by the Friends of Al Aqsa and Muslim Association of Britain on Friday afternoon.

On Sunday he moves on to Helsinki to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin for long-awaited talks on neutral territory.

On Tuesday, the president described Johnson as a "friend" who had been "very nice to me, very supportive", even though when Trump suggested in 2015 London had police no-go zones, Johnson, then the capital's mayor, quipped he feared going to NY because of "the real risk of meeting Donald Trump".

The sad news for Trump Baby is that Trump himself apparently won't be spending much time in London itself and is unlikely to see his inflated, infantile likeness in person.

Trump is also expected to travel to Scotland, where he owns two golf courses.

"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.

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.

Trump is scheduled to meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II later this month.

Trump heads to Britain just days after several high-level cabinet ministers, including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, resigned over Brexit negotiations.

More than 50,000 people have signed up to demonstrate in London on Friday when protesters intend to fly a large balloon over parliament portraying Trump as an orange, snarling baby although a counter-gathering to welcome him is also planned.
