Brits pushing 'American Idiot' to top of charts for Trump visit

Donald Trump's imminent visit to the UK is set to be marked by Green Day hit 'American Idiot' rising to the top of the country's singles chart.

The former Celebrity Apprentice host and current US president is expected to be met by more than 100,000 protesters on the streets when he arrives in London, along with a giant blimp that resembles him as a baby flying over the city.

'American Idiot' has already been pushed to number one on Amazon's UK best seller list, number nine on the UK's iTunes Top 10 and number 18 on Britain's Official Singles Chart.

Organisers want it at number one on all the charts - which would be higher than the song's peak of number 3 on the UK charts when it was first released in 2004.

"It will be the best £1 you've ever spent, or the funniest waste of £1 you've ever spent on a song you probably have already," writes the official American Idiot For UK No.1 When Trump Visits Twitter account.

"But what the hell, on the week of 6-12 July just buy yourself 4 less Freddos and grab a download of Green Day instead. Got that?"

Other things Trump can look forward to with the London protests include a 'wall of sound' demonstrators plan to create outside Winfield House, the American ambassador's official residence, where Trump will be staying his first night.

Protesters reportedly plan on playing mariachi music and the sounds of crying children asking for their parents.
