Trump dodges London protests for tea with Queen Elizabeth

12 July, 2018, 18:29 | Author: Wade Massey

Activists inflate a giant balloon depicting US President Donald Trump as an orange baby in north London on July 10, 2018 ahead of a demonstration in London to coincide with the visit of the US president. "Britain is going to have to look right around the world for allies with which to do trade deals". "People see him as a cheap huckster who happens to have an office we respect as president of the United States".

Similar protests are planned on Thursday evening outside the USA ambassador's home at Regent's Park and in Scotland when Mr Trump visits on Saturday.

A statement on the United States embassy website warns USA citizens to "be aware of your surroundings [and] exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

Some British citizens are even more distressed about Trump than they are about the U.K.'s own feverish political turmoil.

In the Tuesday memo, the U.S. Embassy in London alerted citizens to the "numerous demonstrations" that could "attract large crowds" that may be less than agreeable toward Americans.

Despite the demonstrations, Mr Smyth said there would be plenty of food, music and fun at the Trump Arms during the President's United Kingdom visit, "and hopefully no grief".

As well as in London, protests are expected to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff after Trump arrives here on Thursday.

Mr. Trump has been quick to criticize British society, telling an NRA convention in May that the British didn't have guns but had so much knife crime that one hospital was like a military war zone with its floors awash with blood - a statement quickly rebutted by British physicians and politicians. That led roughly 500,000 people to sign a petition calling for Trump to be banned from entering the Britain. It was an extraordinary rebuke from a close ally.

Queen Elizabeth II has outlasted 13 USA presidents during her reign.

They are scheduled to spend Thursday night at the US Ambassador's home Winfield House, which is in Regent's Park.

The Stop Trump Coalition accused the president of being "too scared to face protestors".

Mr Smyth said he hoped the protests, and specifically the Trump baby blimp, do not upset the American public.

Trump had been reacting to recent fractions within the Cabinet over Brexit.

May will host a black-tie dinner for Trump there, attended by senior ministers and about 100 business leaders, including from Blackstone group, Blackrock, Diageo, McLaren and Arup.

Later, Trump will go to Windsor Castle for tea with 92-year-old Queen Elizabeth. These will focus on relations with Russian Federation, trade, Brexit and the Middle East.
