Answered By: 
The Mayor

As the nation's capital and seat of Government, London has long experience of preparing for visits from Heads of State, including Presidents of the United States.

In the event of any such visit to London; the Met works closely with the Foreign & Commonwealth Office and other key partners to ensure the visit can take place safely.

The risks and potential threats are carefully assessed and an appropriate policing plan put in place that mitigates those risks.
