Ambassador to UK: Trump 'Aware' of Baby Balloon, Not Avoiding Protests

Ambassador to UK: Trump 'Aware' of Baby Balloon, Not Avoiding Protests

The White House and Trump's British hosts are opting to go big on pomp and tradition, and mostly skip the current circumstances - namely, the mass demonstration against the US president planned for next Friday in central London.

Mr. Trump's two-day visit to the United Kingdom begins Thursday and includes an audience with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle. It's not yet been confirmed whether the President will play golf while there for the weekend. The itinerary doesn't list a visit to the new embassy in South London, which Trump dismissed as a "bad deal". "So, we continue to promote renewable energy projects like that one".

Activists have promised to stage protests against Trump throughout his visit, with an event planned for London on Friday expected to be the biggest.

The president will also attend a black-tie dinner with business leaders and diplomats at Blenheim Palace in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, which is the birthplace of Winston Churchill.

It remains unclear how Mr. Rowley and Ms. Sturgess were exposed.

Yesterday she made a thinly veiled attack on his opposition to renewable energy in Scotland.

In response to the news, former UKIP leader Nigel Farage tweeted that the balloon protest would be "the biggest insult to a sitting US President ever", apparently forgetting the four Presidents who have been assassinated and the racist birther campaign against President Barack Obama which Trump fuelled.

Temperatures in the 90s are predicted to last throughout the week but could reach 100 degrees, according to the weather service. Simpson said the humidity will probably stick around until later in the week, leaving sometime Friday or Saturday .

"Prime ministers frequently make use of Chequers for meetings with foreign leaders", she told the publication. "On the other hand I would imagine the head of the Scottish Government would be quite happy not to receive an invitation".

Smyth expressed doubts that the president would stop by for a pint but said he would "have a pint of stout ready for him in case".

They have given him a light schedule, with plenty of "executive time", and have looked for perks to present. "Trump Baby will fly!"

U.S. Ambassador to Britain Woody Johnson painted trade as a potential bright spot in the strong "special relationship" between Britain and the United States, which he said Trump meant to strengthen.

The amount raised by the Trump Baby crowdfunder means that the balloon will be following the President around the globe, organisers have said. "That is a very important meeting". The billionaire and real estate tycoon was originally supposed to visit one of the U.S.'s strongest allies previous year but widespread protests nixed those initial plans.

"It is my view, and that of the Scottish Labour Party, that someone who holds such misogynist, racist and anti-trade union views, not to mention his risky approach to foreign policy, and someone who rejects the Paris Climate Change Agreement, should not be given the "red carpet" treatment".

He said: "The sight of mothers separated from babies, and children caged like animals has horrified people across the globe, we should not be
welcoming the man responsible".
