The U.S. Embassy issued the advice on Tuesday ahead of the President's arrival on Thursday for talks with a Prime Minister Theresa May.

Trump will arrive in Britain on 12 July for a "working visit", a more sober affair than the original plan for a state visit with its customary pomp and pageantry after it drew threats of mass protests.

The U.S. Embassy in London has warned Americans in the British capital to "keep a low profile" during the visit of their Commander-in-Chief as a result of the major protests that are expected. "So instead of 1000 tiny balloons, we have ordered a half-size Trump Baby created to be filled with air - he's made from thicker plastic so he's a lot less fragile than the big boy - meaning he can join in the protests and knock about with people in the crowds".

On Tuesday, Trump left for a weeklong Europe trip that includes a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

"There are many Trump supporters around here who will be happy to see it", landlord Damien Smyth, whose wife is from NY, told the Evening Standard newspaper.

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.

"He's here to do more important things than worry about some protesters".

Talks with Prime Minister Theresa May, a meeting with Queen Elizabeth II and a trip to Scotland all made Trump's schedule for his three-day United Kingdom visit beginning Friday.

May's future was thrown into question after two high-level cabinet members -including Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson- resigned amid the growing chaos surrounding Brexit negotiations.

Trump has long voiced his support for Brexit, saying it was part of a global uprising that ultimately thrust him to power, and he was at his Scottish golf resort the day after Britons voted to leave the European Union, saying the outcome was a "great thing".
