Robertson called President Trump "a threat to global stability", and added that "he has a tenuous relationship with the truth".

Trump lands in Britain on Thursday following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels where he chided Germany and other European nations for failing to contribute enough to defence spending.

As well as in London, protests are expected to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff after Trump arrives on Thursday.

The U.S. embassy in London has warned Americans to "keep a low profile" during President Trump's visit to England later this week.

Some 50,000 people are expected to attend a protest against Trump's visit on Friday (July 13)-just one of several demonstrations that organizers have promised will be a "carnival of resistance."

Mr Yousaf said: "We understand that many people feel very strongly about President Trump and his administration's policies, and will want to express that this weekend when he is in the country".

The giant diaper-clad Trump baby blimp that will fly over London during President Donald Trump's visit will soon embark on a world tour.

When US President Donald Trump visits the United Kingdom on Friday, his welcome party will include the Prime Minister, Her Majesty the Queen, 200,000 angry protesters, and a 20-foot inflatable effigy of himself as a baby.

"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 U.S. embassy said in the alert on its website.

Protests are also planned in more than 30 towns and cities around the country, including Cambridge, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Belfast.

Malin Baker Bogue, 28, who works in government relations and moved to Britain from the United States in 2015, said she was not a fan of Trump despite being a Republican but was still surprised by the anger he provoked.

Americans were advised to "keep a low profile", "be aware of your surroundings", and "monitor local media" during Trump's visit.
