Songs for the Forty-Fifth President of the United States of America


JUST when you thought the nation…

couldn’t get more nervous and on-edge; we are preparing for the visit of President Donald Trump! He lands in the U.K. on Thursday and I am sure, with our Government cracking and shifting, he will bring his delicate, diplomatic and humanist touch to the situation! In regards to his upcoming visit; he has been telling reporters how he views the unravelling situation in this country:

Donald Trump expects to see a country in “turmoil” when he lands in the UK on Thursday for a two-day visit he said would make his subsequent summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki seem “easy”.

The president spoke to reporters on the south lawn of the White House on Tuesday morning, before boarding Marine One to begin his trip to Europe, which will begin with a Nato summit in Brussels.

He repeated familiar criticism of Nato and spoke warmly of Boris Johnson, the British foreign secretary and Brexit leader who resigned from the government of Theresa May on Monday. Trump said Johnson had been “very nice” and “very supportive”.

“It’s going to be an interesting time in the UK and certainly an interesting time with Nato,” Trump said, over the noise of the helicopter. “Nato has not treated us fairly but I think we’ll work something out. We pay far too much and they pay far too little. But we will work it out and all countries will be happy”.

If this were a visit by former President Barack Obama, then you can bet people would be lining the streets and cheering as he arrived. As people frantically stock-pile bottle of piss and get all their out-of-date food from the fridge; it seems Trump will be met with something a lot tangier and more rotten. He does not have too many fans over here (or anywhere in the world). Aside from Nigel Farage oiling his chest and making sure his tongue is at its most flexible (use your imagination…); there is going to be much protest and disgust lining the streets of the country. It seems, when he heads to London and faces the outrage of the people; things are going to be very tense and vocal:

More important than what Trump says is what Britain says back to him. And the most significant element in that collective answer will be the series of rallies and demonstrations planned for the four-day visit. It is of the highest importance that these marches are both populous and peaceful. Nobody can predict how many will turn out to protest in cities across the UK – the centrepiece being the national Together Against Trump march and rally in London on Friday afternoon. But put it this way: I would be surprised if they were sparsely attended”.

We will be very peaceful and restrained on that Friday but there will be plenty of hostility aimed at the embittered and disgraced President. To ‘honour’ his visit to us; I have compiled a selection of songs that sum up Donald Trump and his ‘charms’. Whilst Three Lions creeps back into the public consciousness and becomes our (unofficial) national anthem; there are a few other songs that could, for a brief time, well be…
