#StopTrump

Donald Trump has arrived in the UK – he touched down at Stansted Airport this afternoon.

The divisive US President will stay overnight at the official residence of US Ambassador Woody Johnson, before travelling to Chequers for crunch talks with Theresa May tomorrow morning.

He’s  set to travel across the UK during his four-day visit, and it’s expected that he’ll be met with protests at every location.

Here’s everything you need to know about being a part of them.

London

Fully aware of hostilities, Trump will largely steer clear of London – only staying in the capital for one night.

But from the minute he arrives in Regent’s Park tonight, he’ll be met with immediate protests outside at 5.30PM.

The backlash will continue tomorrow, when a much-discussed blimp that sees the US President depicted as an angry nappy-clad baby will fly in the skies.

If you’re hoping to see it, the blimp will fly above Parliament Square between 9am-11am tomorrow after receiving the green light from the Greater London Authority last week.

Meanwhile, The main ‘Stop Trump’ protest will take place outside the BBC building in Portland Place on Friday at 2pm. A staggering 50,000 people are expected to show up before marching to Parliament Square.

Oxfordshire

 

After landing at Stansted Airport, Trump will head to Blenheim Palace for an official banquet with Theresa May and 100 other guests.

The Oxford branch of Stand Up To Racism plans to protest his visit from 5.30PM this afternoon.

Scotland

It’s expected that Trump will visit one of his own golf resorts in either Balmedie or Turnberry.

A rally will be held outside the president’s Balmedie course in Aberdeenshire on Saturday, and it’s expected there could be further demonstrations at Turnberry. A
There’s also the small matter of national demonstration at the Scottish Parliament in Edinburgh on Saturday.

What about the rest of the UK?

As mentioned, there’s a huge list of protests meeting Trump at every turn.
