LONDON FALLING: US Embassy Warns Americans of 'VIOLENT' PROTESTS During Trump Visit

The Jameson in Hammersmith has rebranded itself The Trump Arms for the US President's visit.

Dozens of protests have been organised across the country as organisers seek to mount a "carnival of resistance".

The march will begin at the BBC in Portland Place and proceed to Trafalgar Square, where a rally will take place.

Meanwhile, Theresa May's government is nervously anticipating disruption from the guest himself. That led roughly half a million people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from entering the UK.

Following the departure of senior figures, including foreign minister Boris Johnson and Brexit minister David Davis, the political atmosphere is febrile.

And if the President makes an impromptu appearance at the Trump Arms?

On terrorism: After coming under fire for re-tweeting anti-Muslim videos posted online by the deputy leader of the far-right Britain First group, Jayda Fransen, the president said Theresa May should focus on "destructive radical Islamic terrorism" in the United Kingdom, rather than on him.

"That's certainly up to the people, not up to me", said Trump.

While tens of thousands of Brits are set to protest Donald Trump's visit on Thursday, one pub in west London will be welcoming him with open arms.

At 5.30pm, there will be a protest at Regent's Park, outside the US Ambassador's residence where the US President is staying overnight. From there his meetings with Mrs May will be at her country home, Chequers, which offers a "more informal setting", according to a Downing Street spokesman.

Next, on July 13, a demonstration has been organised by the "Stop Trump Coalition" with the initial protest movement.

The six-metre high blimp, dubbed "Trump Baby", has been granted permission to fly above Parliament Square for two hours on Friday morning.

"The requirements of this complex operation need to be balanced with the right of individuals to a freedom of speech".

The protesters say that they have also contacted the first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, asking her to personally sanction the flying of the balloon, which depicts the United States president as an angry baby wearing a nappy.

Murray added that he hoped that the Turnberry visit would be the first stage in a world tour for the Trump baby balloon, shadowing the president on his "so-called diplomatic missions".

Some Britons plan to give him a "fitting" reception with an oversized "Trump baby" balloon.

The U.S. president is also due to travel to Scotland where he owns two golf courses and Scotland's interim police chief has said more than 5,000 officers would be needed for to cover the trip, including specialist riot and armed officers.
