President Donald Trump is scheduled to make his first official visit to the United Kingdom since taking office in January, 2017. In preparation for his Thursday, July 12 arrival, the citizens of the UK have come up with some clever ways to greet the United States leader.
In London there will be an airborne giant inflatable Trump baby, in Sheffield there will be a ban on Trump and a Mexican fiesta thanks to the Lord Mayor and people across the UK are working to get Green Day’s song “American Idiot” to number one on the charts.
And now, at Moak Farm in Stoke Mandeville, a crop circle has been laid into the farm’s field by an undisclosed artist. Stoke Mandeville is a village and civil parish in the Vale of Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire, England.
It also lies right on the flight path of the helicopter engaged to take the President and First Lady to a welcome reception at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire hosted by Prime Minister Theresa May.
“I was approached by an artist, who wished to remain anonymous to use one of my crop fields. They were specifically looking for one in the flight path that Donald Trump will take when he comes to the UK this week.”
“There was a financial transaction, I won’t say how much but it was remuneration for the damaged crops, which won’t be salvageable.”
The artist created a crop circle, easily visible from a helicopter. And the message?
For those not conversant in Russian, the message reads “FUCK TRUMP.” The crop circle is described as an “art installation” by the farm’s owner.
The farmer himself however has no opinion on the visiting foreign leader, stating,
A lot of people have asked me this, but my thoughts on Trump are completely neutral. For me it was a transaction between myself and the artist.”
The unknown artist’s views appear obvious however based on their artwork.
Work on the crop circle was done Sunday, July 8, and reportedly took 14 hours to complete in extremely hot weather. It measures 200 meters —over 650 feet— wide.
The design was planned with a helicopter in mind. With a drone, photos were taken from 400 feet above the crop circle to get a president’s eye view.
News of the artist’s work began to spread quickly.
