In a break with tradition, American President Donald Trump will avoid as much of London as possible during his first official United Kingdom visit, but first lady Melania Trump will spend nearly all her time in the city, according to The Huffington Post.

The proposal was debated in Parliament, where Trump was heavily criticized. She pointed out there are many issues that legislators have urged her to raise with her American counterpart.

In anticipation of the unprecedented vitriol directed at a serving president, the U.S. embassy told Americans to keep a low profile and "exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".

The trip includes meetings with Prime Minister Theresa May, who has described the United States as Britain's strongest ally, and is determined to secure a trade deal after the country acts on Brexit and leaves the European Union in March 2019.
