The U.S. Embassy in London has warned Americans in the British capital to “keep a low profile” during the visit of their Commander-in-Chief as a result of the major protests that are expected.

The Embassy sent a “demonstration alert” warning to citizens ahead of Donald Trump’s arrival in London on Thursday July 12. They stated that people should “be aware of your surroundings” and “exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent” as well as monitor local media for updates.

This could well affect a number of senior level media executives as many of the “numerous” demonstrations are set to start in or around Soho in Central London, near the headquarters of the likes of NBC Universal, Apple and 21st Century Fox as well as various TV companies and film firms.

The main demonstrations, which are set to be attended by over 50,000 people, will start outside the BBC building in Portland Place, yards from Oxford Circus at 2pm on Friday July 13. They will then make their way through Regent Street ending in Trafalgar Square, where a rally is planned between 5pm and 7pm GMT. The Trump blimp baby is expected to make its debut during this time.

1. I suppose...

You can't completely discount people assuming that US citizens think like Trump does.

However, I just got back from two weeks in England (London and other places) and everyone I encountered, worked with, etc. was unfailingly polite and welcoming. Trump came up several times, but my impression is most people understand that not everyone espouses his views.

2. Complete bull shite solely for the benefit of the gods & guns crowd - like if they hate trump that

must mean they hate ALL americans.... right? Driving wedges again - they do it so well.

I would bet there will be a significant contingent of Americans participating IN the protest. Wish I was there! Would be nice to be in a good demo, in a halfway normal country.

5. Like many Americans in the U.K. during his visit won't be looking to join a demonstration

I know I would.

8. But you know....

there will be some brain-dead Trump zombie who's going to show those Brits a thing or three about HIS personal savior, Donnie J. Trump. You know, because Trump tells it like it is! I hope the Brits rearrange said Trump zombie's face somewhat.

9. They always issue this warning about any large protest

The main worry is crowd control/stampede problems more than anything else. If England beats Croatia they'll issue a warning about the celebrations.
