And now another Trump-trolling campaign is bearing fruit.

"Trump is scheduled to visit the United Kingdom from Thursday through Sunday as he meets with Prime Minister Theresa May and other British officials". Britain's love of soccer is a force beyond Trump or any mere Facebook campaign. "We're doing this anyway".

As it now stands, American Idiot is sitting at number 18 in the midweek charts. Trump arrives on Thursday for a four-day visit. Now can you hear the sound of hysteria?!

The subliminal mind-f**k America.

British protestors have been furiously downloading and streaming the 2004 single since last week with the hopes that "American Idiot" will be No. 1 just in time for Trump's touchdown.

To be fair, not everyone's knickers are in a twist across the pond about Trump's visit.

Dozens of immigrant children in the U.S. will be reunited with parents
The reunification process has highlighted how traumatic the Trump administration's decision to separate children has been. They include migrants who were released from detention before the zero-tolerance policy was enacted in April.

These and other demonstrations will likely accumulate to show Trump he's not wanted in the UK.

During a planned "Stop Trump" march in central London on Friday, a 19-foot-tall orange balloon - shaped to look like a baby version of Trump - will be flown as high as 98 feet in the air near Parliament.

The prep work, one constable told The Guardian, is akin to what would happen "if London was burning down".

In related news, fans were able to bring back Green Day's "American Idiot" back in charts. After reports emerged indicating that Trump had gifted Kim Jong Un with a copy of Elton John's song "Rocket Man", Kaine joked that the North Korean leader sent back a copy of "American Idiot".
