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

JAN. 27 2017 British Prime Minister Theresa May and U.S. President Donald Trump walk along The Colonnade of the West Wing at The White House

The embassy cautioned people to be aware of their surroundings and "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

London Mayor Sadiq Khan has given permission for a giant inflatable baby blimp that looks like Trump to fly over the Houses of Parliament during the president's visit.

Organizers of anti-Trump rallies say they are not expecting any trouble at all - and that it would be very unlikely for any hostility to be directed at ordinary Americans.

Mr Trump's schedule will largely keep him out of central London and it seems unlikely that the United States president will come close enough to Westminster to see the blimp.

Reuters reports that more than 50,000 people have signed up to protest Trump's visit in London on Friday.

Immediately after arriving in London, Trump and his wife will attend a black-tie dinner in Oxfordshire hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May.

Embassy staff said "numerous demonstrations" were planned for Thursday to Saturday with the majority around central London on Friday.

Mr Trump arrives Thursday afternoon following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and largely avoids the capital's centre and the protesters.

"Our trade and investment relationship is unrivalled - we are the largest investors in each other's economies and every day a million British people go to work for U.S. companies in the United Kingdom and a million Americans go to work for United Kingdom companies in the U.S.", May said.

He will spend just one night in the capital before going to Prime Minister Theresa May's country retreat Chequers in Buckinghamshire.

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.

British law requires any petition supported by more than 100,000 people to be considered for parliamentary debate, even though there was no serious attempt to prohibit Trump from coming to Britain.

The protocol is that if embassy staff are warned internally about possible threats, then the American public must be as well, she said. After the visit, Trump will decamp to Finland for a one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16.

Nearly all of Trump's activities will be outside the city: He'll meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, not Buckingham Palace.

Left-wing anti-Brexit group "Another Europe is Possible" have also parked vans with message that reads-'Trump: Go Home or Face Protest' in Parliament Square to mark US President's visit to the UK.
