Bolded part drives me nuts. This is the same reasoning that some people here used for voting for Trump in the first place. Because HRC was just as bad. Trump being ceremoniously banned from Sheffield is based on much more than his ideas, come on. What about what he is actually doing?



And the real question is: were these two people, Don and Hillary really the best thing American politics had to offer? That's what's worrying. Trump isn't the problem. He is a result of a system gone wrong. I don't have the answer to that question, but finding it is more important than hating on Trump for the umpteenth time.

Whilst I agree that many voted Trump in a 'best of two bad choices' scenario, I think anyone that votes at all, for any party, does so in the hope that whoever wins has their countries best interests at heart. The problem, it seems to me, with Trump, is that many don't think what he is doing has the countries best interests at heart at all, and that his policies are designed with personal or financial incentive (possibly for the country), ignoring any humanitarian issues or indeed other issues that might arise. In that sense I totally disagree that Trump isn't the problem - he has systematically over and over refused to listen, cannoning on with his own agenda, and some of those that voted for him as a 'best option' are simply left shaking their heads in dismay and wondering what they've done (bit like I am with the whole Brexit fiasco). I said when Trump got in that I didn't like him but that I hoped he'd prove me wrong. Sadly he's much, much worse than many expected .

In Brussels:

NATO leaders are braced for Tuesday’s summit meeting in Brussels. Above, protesters were already out on the streets there over the weekend.
European officials are anticipating more off-the-cuff remarks from President Trump, who has ...uring them to expand their military budgets. The NATO nations may be reluctant to push back very hard because, as one analyst points out, “They’re caught between dependency and outrage.”
After NATO, Mr. Trump will head to Britain for a few days. Protesters intend to find him wherever he goes (and aim to fly a 19-foot “Trump Baby” balloon over Parliament). Then he’ll go to Finland to meet with the Russian president, Vladimir Putin.

A movement has now been started to get Green Day's 'American Idiot' to number one to coincide with Trump's visit.

US embassy warns Americans in London to 'keep a low profile' during Trump visit

Guess he isn't welcome in the UK lol


Americans in the UK have been warned to “keep a low profile” during this week’s visit of their president, Donald Trump, as the US embassy in London says demonstrations against the event could turn violent.

On Tuesday, officials said the demonstrations would probably be focused on the centre of the UK capital, despite the fact that Trump is spending only a short time there, but added others had also been planned over the three days from Wednesday.

“Be aware of your surroundings [and] exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent,” the US embassy warned.

In their warning on Tuesday, the embassy told American citizens to expect the largest demonstration in central London on Friday 13 July, when organisers hope tens of thousands of people will be on the streets. A “Trump baby” balloon is also due to fly over central London that morning.

US officials in London added that, besides keeping their heads down, people should also keep an eye on local media and heed any police advice. “Several of the events are expected to attract large crowds and there will be road closures in connection with those events,” they said.

Other planned demonstrations on Thursday include one near Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, where Trump will attend a black-tie dinner, and another near the US ambassador’s residence in London, where Trump and his wife Melania will stay overnight and where a high metal fence has been erected. Gatherings are also due to take place in Bristol, Newcastle, Leeds, Cambridge and Cardiff on Thursday evening.

Protesters have been invited to go to Chequers, where Trump and the prime minister, Theresa May, plan to hold a working lunch, while organisers said protesters were due to travel to London for a rally at Trafalgar Square on Friday. With Trump planning to travel to Scotland on Friday evening after meeting the Queen at Windsor Castle, a rally is also planned for Glasgow’s George Square.

A further protest will be held outside the US president’s Scottish golf courses on Saturday, while a national demonstration is planned at the Scottish parliament in Edinburgh the same day.

This really annoys me. Americans will be more than welcomed by the Brits to join in the protests. The protest is against the POTUS, and we are well aware that many, many Americans feel the same way about Trump as we do.


I very much doubt there will be violence, unless a group of far-right supporters turn up wearing MAGA caps.

Even if they do, they'll get heckled, but that's it. Some of the Britain First knobs might try to cause trouble, but my guess is that they will not be allowed anywhere near the demonstration.

I can't understand why the embassy published that, other than to appease Fox news.

It's the simple acts of kindness that count.

After England crashed out of the world cup last night, Magid Magid decided that the people of Sheffield needed cheering up. He asked people to tweet their addresses and then he and Rufus Hound went all day turning up with sweets to cheer people up. So many people tweeting their thanks and surprise as he turned up at their place of work.

Positivity and unity - much better than causing divisions.

Trump arrives in the UK. This is placed directly opposite the US embassy, in time for his arrival.

Kate Allen, from the charity Amnesty International, hopes Theresa May will discuss Mr Trump's track record on human rights in the coming days.

She said:

"His record for human rights is simply disgraceful, from ripping children from parents' arms on the Mexican border and putting them into cages to the travel ban to pulling the US globally out of the United Nations machinery that exists to advance human rights worldwide."

While Britain regards the United States as its closest ally, some Britons see Trump as crude, volatile and opposed to their values on a range of issues. His comments on militant attacks in Britain and his re-tweeting of anti-Muslim videos posted by a leader of a far-right UK party sparked anger.

There was an article on The Guardian today of Trump’s friends in Britain and it read like a who is who of people you would let drown falloff

My theory is that the current administration instructed the embassy to do this - to make it seem like these protests represent Anti-American sentiment as opposed to Anti-Trump sentiment.


NO ONE of intelligent mind in either country is buying it - except maybe for the orange followers who DO NOT represent the majority of U.S. citizens by a long shot.



I thank the British people for their support!

peace Out!

Mr Trump said earlier this week that the UK is in "turmoil" and "it is up to the people" whether Mrs May stays as prime minister after Boris Johnson and David Davis quit the cabinet over her Brexit policy.

Speaking ahead of his trip, the president described Turnberry as "magical" and "one of my favourite places", adding: "My mother was born in Scotland and I have great friendships over there".

He went on to say: "There might be protests, but I believe that the people in the UK, Scotland, Ireland, I think those people, they like me a lot. And they agree with me on immigration - that's why you have Brexit in the first place, because of immigration."
