Asad Rehman, 51, one of the organizers of a massive protest planned for central London, said that among the motivations behind the protest was to show solidarity with Americans across the Atlantic who also oppose Trump.
The state visit has never actually been scheduled - there is fierce opposition to it in many quarters of Britain - and this trip is part of a working visit instead, meaning among things that Trump will overnight at Winfield House, the USA ambassador's handsome residence near Regents Park rather than in Buckingham Palace or Windsor Castle as a guest of the queen.
British law requires any petition supported by more than 100,000 people to be considered for parliamentary debate, even though there was no serious attempt to prohibit Trump from coming to Britain.
The US president used the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit to launch fierce attack on Germany, saying it was "totally controlled" by Russian Federation, as he ratcheted up demands for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to pay more for their collective defence.
Then, Trump will head to Scotland for a few days.
- Mr Trump and First Lady Melania will have a meet and greet at the US Embassy in London. Both of those accords were the result of years of painstaking diplomacy by European leaders - and Trump unilaterally trashed them.
Mr Trump is expected to play golf at the course on Saturday.
Donald Trump will be accompanied by as many as 1,000 staff, a motorcade and multiple helicopters during his United Kingdom trip.
In the capital marchers will descend outside the BBC at 2pm on Friday before heading to Trafalgar Square in a rally to stop "the clock be turned back to the darkest moments of human history".
Murray added that he hoped that the Turnberry visit would be the first stage in a world tour for the Trump baby balloon, shadowing the president on his "so-called diplomatic missions".
And if London's National Air Traffic Service and Metropolitan Police Service decide at the last minute that for safety reasons, the balloon can not fly, this baby will be grounded.
But his agenda reveals that he will largely avoid London - where tens of thousands plan to protest against him and a 20-foot balloon that depicts him as an angry orange baby will fly over the Houses of Parliament in Westminster.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan gave permission for the helium-filled six-metre high balloon to fly.
"There is no stronger alliance than that of our special relationship with the US and there will be no alliance more important in the years ahead", May said in a statement.
It can be turned into a sealed panic room with oxygen tanks, night-vision camera and reinforced steel plating said to be able to resist bullets, chemical attacks and bombs.
Staff involved in an overseas trip such as this include Secret Service post-standers, military communications specialists and White House aides.
