Protesters are campaigning for Green Day's "American Idiot" to top the UK charts

09 July 2018, 17:22 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Protesters are attempting to push streams of Green Day's "American Idiot" in the hope it reaches the top of the UK charts in time for Donald Trump's UK visit on Friday.

Ahead of his first visit to the UK, British protesters have been putting together a campaign in the hope of getting Green Day's Grammy-nominated "American Idiot" to number one.

Although the campaign originally appeared online back in April, the protesters aren't holding back in trying to round up as many streams as posible in the last few days leading up to his visit.

"Three Lions" could also be in competition to grab the top spot depending on England's result against Croatia in the World Cup on Wednesday night (11 July).

Donald Trump's visit to the UK has been met with great controversy. Sky reported that a baby Donald Trump blimp has already been given the green light to fly over the Houses of Parliament by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.

The US President arrives in London on 13 July. A devoted Twitter account has been set up so you can follow the progress. All streams will be counted and collated on Thursday 12 July.
