Green Day’s 2004 hit “American Idiot” is currently climbing the charts in the UK ahead of President Donald Trump’s visit later in the week.
On Monday, HuffPost reported that the song is currently the Number 1 single for Amazon’s best-selling songs list in Britain.
A Twitter account which was created to raise the song’s popularity before Trump’s visit said that the track is in the top-10 on iTunes too. “American Idiot” was written about President George W. Bush, the tyrant who lied about Iraq having WMD’s, in 2004.
Senator Tim Kaine (D-Va.) also mentioned the Green Day hit last week while mocking Trump. After Trump sent a copy of “Rocket Man” by Elton John to Kim Jong Un, the senator said that Kim ought to return the favor by sending Trump “American Idiot.”
Trump will visit the U.K. Thursday through Sunday while he meets with the Prime Minister Theresa May and several other British officials.
Thousands will turn out to protest Donald Trump’s first visit to London since taking office. The planned demonstration includes a large “angry Trump baby” blimp, and it was approved by the London city officials for a flight over Parliament.
Donald Trump will avoid London as much as possible during his stay because he is a coward.
