Trump protesters push for Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ to hit No.1 on UK charts


WASHINGTON (Circa) - United Kingdom residents are coming up with new ways to protest President Donald Trump's visit, the latest is to push Green Day's 2004 hit "American Idiot" back to the top of the music charts.

The social media campaign began back in May, according to Billboard magazine. The group calls itself "American Idiot For UK No. 1 When Trump Visits," and set their deadline for July 12 at midnight.

The group asks for Brits to download the "American Idiot" single between June 6 and June 13 to elevate the singles standing on the charts, according to CNN.

On Thursday morning, when Trump arrived at Stansted Airport, the single stood at No.18 on OfficalCharts.com.

President Trump will attend a gala dinner with British and American officials at Blenheim Palace on Thursday evening. The palace was the ancestral home of former Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

Protests including an inflatable baby Trump that will float above parliament during the president's visit are also planned.
