Sadiq Khan defends Trump baby blimp protest near Parliament

Mr Morgan asked if Mr Khan would have approved a large black blimp featuring former US President Barack Obama, or an image depicting the London mayor as a pig - something which would offend his Muslim faith.

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

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.

"Numerous demonstrations are being planned for July 12 to 14, 2018, surrounding the visit of the President of the United States to the United Kingdom", the US embassy said in the alert on its website.

"I have North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, I have the United Kingdom, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have (Vladimir Putin)", Trump said as he set off on his trip to Europe which includes a meeting with the Russian President in the Finnish capital Helsinki.

The city appears to not be the president's biggest fan - plans for a formal state visit were put on hold a year ago after hundreds of thousands of people threatened to protest.

Belgium and France are considered the top two teams left in the World Cup. "He's somebody I really appreciate", Deschamps said. It was a deserved win by Didier Deschamp's team, which had 19 shots, 10 more than Belgium .

The US embassy in London suggests he's not the only one who should do so: It told US citizens in Britain today (July 10) to "keep a low profile" for the duration of his trip-and to be aware of their surroundings.

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.

Even a "Trump baby" blimp will fly with approval from London's mayor.

Trump, for his part, will largely be avoiding London during his visit, according to this Inquisitr report, instead spending much of his time in Scotland, where he owns golf courses.

Shabbir Lakha, organizer for Together Against Trump - a coalition representing several groups - said, "We want to show our opposition to Donald Trump and everything that he represents".
