RTÉ Mobile - Trump coming to Ireland, coincides with Biden trip
The Republican Party's presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump has announced that he will visit Ireland later this month, at the same time that US Vice President Joe Biden is also due to be in the country.
Dignified protest with high turnout would be good, has anyone any suggestions?

Something visually catchy, so that it will get worldwide coverage

Also, what response should politicians and business leaders make? E.g. the President, Taoiseach and Cabinet?

I was going to say treat him like the grubby property developer he is rather than potential POTUS, but our political lot seem to give the former even more of a brown-nosing than the latter...

Just ignore him. Biden will be here too at the same time. Throw him a party and don't invite the Donald.

Then at night, throw plenty birdseed around his golf course.

Hide in the kitchen and pretend we didn't hear the doorbell!

Ignore him.

Any form of protest could backfire, remember being popular with foreigners (eg Obama in Berlin) usually turns out to be a handicap in US elections. I'm sure Trump would use any protests abroad to his advantage back home.

So we're all ok with the birdseed idea?
Nothing to do with Secret Service.

But brings up issue of his business interests & being president.
Mike Bloomberg - promoted an executive to run his media & markets data empire when he was mayor, what would Trump try to do?

Banners should be displayed by the public saying 'Do something with your hair, that comb-over is ridiculous" and "Please go on a diet and stop using fake tan". Kenny should also pull him off to one side and say "Donald, do something with your hair, that comb-over is ridiculous" and "You should really cut down on your pork pies, mate, and desist with the fake tan, as it makes you look like a giant orange".
