Campaigners plan to ridicule the president, whose visit is deeply unpopular.
LONDON A 20-foot-tall inflatable orange baby with the face of President Donald Trump could float over Britains parliament next month, one of many acts of protest planned to coincide with Trump's first visit to the U.K. since taking office.
Tens of thousands of demonstrators are expected to march in London, Scotland and elsewhere during his trip, which takes place amid a growing transatlantic trade war and global dismay at the treatment of immigrant families at the U.S. border.
Britain is keen to reinforce its special relationship with Washington as it prepares to leave the European Union, a divorce that will shape the countrys standing in the world.
But Trump's visit has already been scaled down after months of back-and-forth; the president canceled plans to open the new U.S. Embassy in January and his official state visit opposed in a petition by at least 1.9 million Brits appears to be on ice.

President Trump should have them over to Washington rather than put up with this nonsense.
In the 1980s, they were worked up over Reagans standing up to the Soviets.
Today theyre upset Trump is giving the middle finger
Trump comes with a cork to save a sinking ship and they say no we will sink
NBC cheers the “Protesters”, maybe including themselves as “We”.
They don’t even know what they are protesting.
Two morons with a bumper sticker would be described as “deeply unpopular” by NBC. They’ll lie and exaggerate no matter what happens.
Many Communists in England.
Was watching a BBC “roundtable” show and while they were all lefties, one in particular stood out. Her opinion: the EU was necessary i order to make ensure that the citizens of an individual nation could not elect the wrong ( in her eyes) people.
The shows of “moral superiority” are not convincing. Britain has opened its borders to rapists, and has allowed them to rape and get away with it.
Trump doesn’t want that to happen here.
Free Tommy Robinson....
And start driving on the right side of the road.
I am a Yuge Anglophile (and if there are any Brits left on FR, I love youse guys), but I think maybe Pres. Trump should stay home. He’d get a better welcome in NK, FFS.
England’s Media did what ours is trying to do to us now. England lost this battle we will not.
The British have never been big on freedom.
Its been the other way around.
No wonder they want Trump to stay home. I think he should oblige them.
Foreigners only know the info that our PravdaMedia exports. They havent a clue, except that most foreign countries are pretty far Left, too. So they buy into the exported American propaganda from our Media. Sorry.
OMG, tens of thousands of foreigners don’t like our President...whatever shall we do???? “The World” so loved Clinton and Obama...oh lord, if we’d only listened to all the non citizens of the USA.... Now look at this.... oh my...
With Tommy Robinson and others in jail Trump should stay home and not visit July 13th.
His “Friday the 13th” visit to the UK will bring out the crazies anyway.
“The British have never been big on freedom.”
The British have never been big on friendship either, unless they need our young people fighting and dying for them.
The president should ignore the whole damn bunch of them and go to Poland.
P.S. I don’t trust them to keep our president safe. They toss their young girls to the muslim invaders without even blinking.
I think he should oblige them."
I think you are right. The millions of non-Brits who have supplanted the voice of the people in UK don't want him there, Mz May certainly doesn't want to deal with him and Trump should send a diplomat to tell them if they stay on their present course they are all f##ked.
