The Embassy of the United States in London warned Americans living and visiting the United Kingdom to “keep a low profile” Tuesday, saying “violent protests” may erupt during President Trump’s visit to the UK.
According to the Mirror, the US Embassy urged its citizens to remain vigilant during Trump’s two-day visit beginning July 12th, instructing Americans to “be aware of your surroundings” and watch local news for updates as the Commander-in-Chief tours the country.
The warning comes hours after British Prime Minister Theresa May faced a growing backlash over her government’s failure to secure a deal on the UK’s upcoming divorce from the European Union.
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.
The President commented on the escalating crisis Monday, saying it’s “up to the people” to decide if May should remain as Prime Minister.
“I get along with her very well, I have very good relations. That’s certainly up to the people, not up to me,” said Trump.
LONDON FALLING: Mayor Approves ANTI-TRUMP BLIMP During Presidential Visit
London Mayor Sadiq Khan is poised to take his anti-Trump crusade to the next level in the coming days; approving a giant protest balloon to fill the skies during the President’s upcoming visit to the UK capital.
According to Sky News, the Mayor approved the request for the anti-Trump blimp after thousands signed a petition, placing “strict rules” on where the “giant balloon” can be seen during the trip.
“The Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms,” said a statement from Khan’s office.
“His city operations team have met with the organisers and have given them permission to use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp,” added the mayor.
“We didn’t get off to the best start with the Mayor’s office over this, who originally told us that they didn’t recognise Trump Baby as legitimate protest,” said one protester.

LONDON FALLING: Murder Spree in UK CAPITAL Continues, 50 DEAD in 2018
A man in his mid-twenties was brutally stabbed to death in North London Wednesday night, bringing the British capital’s murder rate to over 50 people since the beginning of 2018 and raising serious security questions throughout the United Kingdom.
According to the Telegraph, the unidentified man was found “fatally wounded” by the Metropolitan Police Department in London’s Hackney neighborhood shortly after 8pm.
“In the same borough just hours earlier a man in his 50s died outside a bookmakers in Upper Clapton Road following a suspected fight,” writes the Telegraph. “The attack has added to the UK’s soaring rate of knife crime, with fatal stabbings in England and Wales at their highest levels since 2010/11.”
The stabbing death comes just days after two teenagers were killed in similar attacks in the country’s largest city.
The shocking tally means the murder rate in London has risen by 40% in just three years; the stark opposite to New York City’s crime statistics which have fallen by nearly 90% since Mayor Rudolph Giuliani’s harsh crackdown in the 1990s.
