Americans in UK warned to keep

Trump is set to land in London on Thursday July 12 and stay at the U.S. Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park before dinner at Blenheim Palace.

While no plans for Mr Trump to enjoy a round of golf have been confirmed, a protest will be held outside the president's Balmedie course in Aberdeenshire on Saturday, and it is expected there could be demonstrations around his Turnberry resort too.

The commander-in-chief is due to meet the Queen at Windsor Castle and Theresa May at her country home in Chequers, before travelling north to Scotland.

When Donald Trump arrives in the United Kingdom later this week, he'll be laying unusually low for a USA president visiting Britain, thanks to the throngs of protests expected in central London.

However, the president's impending trip to Britain has stirred up quite a bit of controversy amongst citizens of our neighbor-nation across the pond, with thousands of protesters expected to take to the streets upon his arrival.

Some 50,000 people are expected to attend a protest against Trump's visit on Friday (July 13)-just one of several demonstrations that organizers have promised will be a "carnival of resistance."

"Numerous demonstrations are planned" from July 12 to July 14, with a majority of protests occurring in central London on Friday, the embassy said in an alert Tuesday.

"Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent", the embassy said in a list of advised actions, asking Americans to "keep a low profile" and "be aware of your surroundings". Over 10,000 citizens signed the petition to let it fly, which the mayor finally agreed to, seeing it as a "peaceful protest".

The city appears to not be the president's biggest fan - plans for a formal state visit were put on hold previous year after hundreds of thousands of people threatened to protest.

He said: "A lot of people in Dundee don't like what Donald Trump stands for".
