In anticipation of the massive protests planned for President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom on Thursday, the U.S. Embassy has warned Americans to "keep a low profile" in the English capital.

He will hold talks with Prime Minister Theresa May, meet the Queen at Windsor Castle and attend a black tie dinner at the home of former World War Two leader Winston Churchill - all outside London.

An inflatable, baby version of President Donald Trump could be appearing over his golf course in Scotland this weekend. But trip planners may go out of their way to shield Mr. Trump from viewing another aspect of the greeting: an oversized balloon depicting the president as an angry baby in a diaper that will be flown from Parliament Square during what are expected to be massive gatherings of protesters opposed to the US leader's presence.

The US president gave a brief wave to the crowd before descending the steps holding the hand of the First Lady, who wore a fitted beige dress and red belt.

Organisers said they will transport the balloon to Scotland overnight, and will now fly it elsewhere on Saturday.

The president's visit comes after his participation in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Belgium. She said they will discuss security and defense, an aspect of the relationship that is causing anxiety for some British politicians.

Nick Hurd, Britain's Policing Minister, told parliament police expected more than 100 protests across the country, including two large demonstrations in London on Friday, and there were robust and proportionate plans in place.

On a rainy night in the summer of 2012, Hu stood outside Liu's apartment and aimed a laser pointer at the window of her study. The first, Carl von Ossietzky, died of tuberculosis in Germany in 1938 while jailed for opposing Adolf Hitler's Nazi regime.

"But from the public, the welcome will be far from warm", he added, saying there would be protests across the country against Trump's "abysmal record on human rights, his repugnant attitude towards women and his disgusting treatment of minorities".

Donald Trump has raised doubts over the UK's handling of the Brexit negotiations suggesting the Prime Minister was not delivering what the people had voted for in the European Union referendum.

On Friday, May and Trump will hold talks on Brexit, relations with Russian Federation and trade ties at the prime minister's Chequers country residence followed by a press conference.

But they said they would be happy to discuss other options for the balloon - leaving open the possibility that it could be flown at one of the other protests against Mr Trump's visit which are being held elsewhere in Scotland. Melania Trump has heard about the plans and isn't excited about her husband's presidency being see as a 'joke'.

Trump's trip is part of a working visit and not a state visit, an invitation to which was extended to him personally by May just days after his inauguration.
