Where to score a selfie with Trump Baby in London

The U.S. Embassy in London issued an alert on Tuesday to Americans in the British capital, warning them to keep a low profile during President Donald Trump's visit later this week in case protests against him turn violent.

The sad news for Trump Baby is that Trump himself apparently won't be spending much time in London itself and is unlikely to see his inflated, infantile likeness in person.

"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.

Murray, who plans to run the initiative as a non-profit, said he has already put some of the money he has raised towards creating a second, smaller Trump Baby that will be making a "surprise" visit at a "secret" location during the president's trip to Britain.

The embassy advised Americans in the country to be aware of their surroundings, "keep a low profile", exercise caution if large gatherings are present, and monitor local media reports for updates.

Other than street marches, they include the flying a massive balloon of Trump as an angry baby from Westminster Gardens near Big Ben.

The U.S. president is also due to travel to Scotland where he owns two golf courses, and Scotland's interim police chief has said more than 5,000 officers would be needed for to cover the trip, including specialist riot and armed officers.

President Trump on Tuesday inflamed tensions barely 48 hours before Air Force Ones touches down by saying Britain is "in turmoil".

A Facebook event called "Trump not welcome - make noise as he arrives" plans to protest right outside where the president will be staying - the US Ambassador's residence in Regent's Park - when he checks in on the evening of Jul 12. He is mostly skipping London to avoid protests.

"I don't know how long Trump Baby would last in the U.S", Murray said.

"I think that would make a lot of people very happy and I think that would really enrage him and those are two fantastic outcomes", Murray said.
