Getty Protestors in Brussels target Trump ahead of UK visit

Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent.
About 50,000 people are planning to demonstrate in London alone on Friday, the day when Trump has meetings planned with both Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II in the countryside.
Trump's visit to the U.K.is expected to be met with significant protests from left-wing activists, promoted by members of the left-wing Labour Party who have repeatedly called for Trump to be uninvited, particularly due to his administration's "zero-tolerance" immigration policies that separated children from their families at the border. "He'll be laying unusually low for a United States president visiting Britain, thanks to the throngs of protests expected in central London", says Quartz.
Trump is set to arrive in Britain this Thursday, July 12, following North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings and as part of a greater tour around Europe, meeting with various different groups and delegates.
He said people would be able to spy the Trump baby "peeping over" parliament, which could make it visible on the South Bank of the Thames, over Westminster Bridge, (closest Tube Stations: Lambeth North, Waterloo).
The Embassy sent a "demonstration alert" warning to citizens ahead of Donald Trump's arrival in London on Thursday July 12.
But Trump is unlikely to see many of those who have mobilized to protest against his visit.
The embassy said these demonstrations were expected to attract large crowds and cause road closures.
Most of the protests will take place that day in central London, the US officials said, with some occurring the days before and after. This remark came following comments Trump made about London Mayor Sadiq Khan in the aftermath of the London Bridge terrorist attack, which killed seven.
Although protests against U.S. policies aren't a new thing, those planned during Trump's visit are also targeted toward him personally. Murray says that the city "rediscovered its sense of humor" in granting permission to "Trump baby".
