THOUSANDS of elite ROBOCOPS will protect Trump during UK visit amid TERROR ATTACK fear

26 June 2018

UP TO 10,000 police officers will be drafted in to protect the US President from mass protests and the threat of a terror attack when he visits the UK next month, it has been revealed.Elite armed officers and the counter-terror robocops who train alongside the SAS will be on alert amid fears of a terrorist atrocity.

Hundreds of riot vans are expected to take to the streets to prevent planned rallies and marches against Donald Trump turning violent – particularly when they clash with supporters of the US President.

A total of 40 police cars and motorbike outriders are thought to have been demanded whenever Trump travels by road, to shield him for assassination attempts.

Police forces will travel both in front and behind the President’s car, blocking all intersections along the route.

Chief constables have cancelled their rest days and told officers to prepare to be hundreds of miles away from home to help out in areas Trump is due to visit.

Trump will meet the Queen, the US ambassador to the UK, Robert Wood Johnson, said on Wednesday, and is expected to dine at Blenheim Palace.

A meeting with the Prime Minister, Theresa May, is also widely expected at either Downing Street or the Prime Minister’s country house, Chequers, to ensure the upkeep of the “special relationship”.

Further details of his itinerary are scarce at present but White House officials are due to fly in this week to plan the schedule in detail.

However, it is believed President Trump will not be afforded the full pomp and ceremony of a State visit when he arrives in less than three weeks’ time.

Labours shadow police minister Louise Haigh said: “Police officers across the country are having their rest days and leave cancelled on a weekly basis to keep people safe.

“The very last thing they need right now is to be diverted from vital tasks to police the red carpet being rolled out for President Trump.”

It has been claimed commanders are currently expecting as many as 200 Police Support Units – comprising an inspector, three sergeants and around 20 public order-trained PCs in three riot vans – will need to be ready for action throughout the trip.

Hundreds of authorised firearms officers, as seen during last month’s Royal Wedding, are also expected to be on duty.

Behind the scenes will also be dozens of Counter-Terrorism Specialist Firearms Officers (CTSFOs), who wear military-style fatigues and are trained alongside special forces to tackle terrorists and perform hostage rescues.

Already, 53,000 people have declared they will attend the main Stop Trump protest on Friday, July 13, organised by Jeremy Corbyn supporter Owen Jones.
