And so, if you happen to be in London this week, you won't want to miss basking in the shadow of one enormous orange flying Trump Baby.

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump will head to England, where Prime Minister Theresa May's government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union.

The US Embassy in London has issued a warning to Americans in Britain to keep a "low profile" during Donald Trump's visit.

"Several of the events are expected to attract large crowds and there will be road closures in connection with those events", the embassy said. "He'll be laying unusually low for a U.S. president visiting Britain, thanks to the throngs of protests expected in central London", says Quartz.

President Trump lands in London on Thursday night for a dinner in his honour at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

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.

The president also took aim at the European Union , saying the U.S.is "being taken advantage of" by the economic bloc. Trump has requested closed-door meetings to take place without aides or the media involved.


"Numerous demonstrations are being planned for July 12 to 14, 2018, surrounding the visit of the President of the United States to the United Kingdom", the USA embassy said in the alert on its website.

Prime Minister Theresa May invited Trump for a state visit when she was the first foreign leader to visit him after his inauguration in January 2017, a decision many British lawmakers said was wrong and sparked protests across Britain.

May appears to have seen off an immediate challenge to her leadership from malcontents within her Conservative Party but Trump's comments ahead of the trip - that Britain was "in somewhat turmoil" and that it was up to the people if she stayed in power - fanned the sense of political crisis.

Trump, for his part, will largely be avoiding London during his visit, according to this Inquisitr report, instead spending much of his time in Scotland, where he owns golf courses. Over 10,000 citizens signed the petition to let it fly, which the mayor finally agreed to, seeing it as a "peaceful protest".

Mr Khan said he supported the decision taken by the Greater London Authority, adding that it was not for him to be a "censor".
