Protesters are expected to rally during President Trump’s visit to the United Kingdom. The US embassy has even warned American citizens in the UK to “keep a low profile” amid fears that protests could turn violent.
Here’s a look at a few ways demonstrators are voicing their dissent:
The musical protest
There’s a social media campaign to make Green Day’s 2004 song “American Idiot” No. 1 in the UK by the time Trump arrives.
The Trump baby balloon
A 19-foot-tall orange balloon — shaped to look like a baby version of Trump — will be flown in central London on Friday. It’s expected to sail as high as 98 feet in the air near Parliament.

A small demonstration is expected to take place near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire today, the venue for Trump’s black-tie dinner with May tonight. Tomorrow, demonstrators are expected to gather near Chequers, the Prime Minister’s country residence, where May and Trump will hold a working lunch.
The biggest protest will take place in central London on Friday when thousands are expected to take to the streets to join the “Stop Trump” march.
