That night, he posed on the red carpet with his wife, Melania, wearing his signature long red tie, and even managed to sit in the theatre under the same roof as Rosie O'Donnell "without incident", Playbill reported at the time.

Trump is set to make his first visit to the United Kingdom as President from Thursday to Sunday this week, where he will meet with British Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II.

The downloading of the song began on July 6, and the protesters plan to continue it through this Thursday, July 12.

Campaigners seem to be doing quite a solid job already, with the track topping the British Amazon charts as of July 6th. A group of anti-Trump Green Day fans took to Facebook to rally protesters into getting the song to the summit of the charts to send a strong message to the US President.

For punk kids born in the late 90s, Green Day's seminal release 2004 American Idiot was a head-first foray into the sheer political power of power-chord laden anarchy. On Amazon in the U.K., American Idiot is now the best-selling song. "We are the country who put Sex Pistols and Rage Against the Machine at No. 1 in the past".

Billy Joe Armstrong of Green Day (C) and the cast of "American Idiot" sing "21 Guns" at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards in Los Angeles January 31, 2010.

Along with the Green Day song, Trump is expected to encounter protests and a 20-foot diapered "Trump baby" blimp during his trip to London. It's predicted that it'll need another 4,000 downloads to break the top 10 of the UK Singles Chart.
