US Embassy issues warning of possible Trump protest violence

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump will head to England, where Prime Minister Theresa May's government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union. Mass demonstrations are expected to flare up across the capital and elsewhere.

"Several of the events are expected to attract large crowds and there will be road closures in connection with those events", the embassy said.

However, the president's impending trip to Britain has stirred up quite a bit of controversy amongst citizens of our neighbor-nation across the pond, with thousands of protesters expected to take to the streets upon his arrival.

In a statement on the United States embassy website, warns U.S. citizens to "be aware of your surroundings [and] exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

For people more excited to see the blimp than the man, here's where to spot the 'Trump Baby', and when.

On Friday, even the mayor of London joined the fun and gave plans to fly a giant blimp showing President Trump as a diapered baby the go-ahead.

Trump is set to visit the United Kingdom later this week after he attends a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and before a highly anticipated meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

Nearly all of Trump's activities will be outside the city: He'll meet the Queen at Windsor Castle, not Buckingham Palace.

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.

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.

May's future was thrown into question after two high-level cabinet members -including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson- resigned amid the growing chaos surrounding Brexit negotiations.
