Scotland Secretary says Trump's visit to country will help 'strengthen vital links'


The US Embassy in London has issued a warning to Americans in Britain to keep a "low profile" during Donald Trump's visit.

President Donald Trump and his wife Melania are due to arrive in Scotland tomorrow night before meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle.

Trump will travel by helicopter once there, making it unlikely he'll see protests firsthand.

Asad Rehman, 51, one of the organizers of a massive protest planned for central London, said that among the motivations behind the protest was to show solidarity with Americans across the Atlantic who also oppose Trump.

He said: 'President Trump is coming to the UK at the invitation of the UK Government and the Secretary of State for Scotland will greet him on arrival.

Later, Trump will take tea with Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle, a home to the royals for 1,000 years, part of a tour created to keep him away from protesters.

The US president has angered many in Britain in the last two years with a series of actions and pronouncements.

Britons' dislike for Trump became most apparent during the 2016 presidential campaign, when Trump called for a temporary ban on Muslims entering the United States. "If a balloon flying over London makes people laugh, I think that's absolutely worth it", she says.

In January, the US president canceled a planned visit to London to open the new US Embassy, calling it a bad deal in a poor location.

He said: 'I am going to a pretty hot spot right now with a lot of resignations'. Mr Trump is hardly likely to catch a glimpse of the six metre giant orange inflatable blimp that depicts him as a screaming baby.

A statement on the United States embassy website warns USA citizens to "be aware of your surroundings (and) exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

A high metal fence has been erected around the USA ambassador's central London residence where Trump will spend Thursday night.
