Pub renamed Trump Arms for presidential visit

Evening Standard

A London pub is being renamed The Trump Arms to celebrate the US president’s visit to the UK next week.

The Jameson pub in Hammersmith will host a welcome party serving Donald Trump’s favourite food and drink. A banner bearing the pub’s temporary new name will be hoisted onto the roof in time for Trump’s arrival and will remain there until he leaves.

Guests will be treated to a BBQ with hot dogs and cheeseburgers, reported to be served up at the White House for the President. These will be washed down with Trump-themed cocktails. Costumes, music and banners will help create the atmosphere of a Trump campaign rally.

Landlord Damien Smyth said the two-day welcome party was a chance to show POTUS that he had a big fan club in London, despite threats of mass protests. Tickets cost £32.

“There are many Trump supporters around here who will be happy to see it,” said Irish-born Mr Smyth, whose wife Marian is a New Yorker. “I was talking to regulars who are looking forward to the visit and I said ‘Let’s set up The Trump Arms while he is here’.”

Local Patrick Sullivan volunteered to organise the event. He said: “Trump has kick-started the US economy, bombed evil Assad and disarmed North Korea. It is right that such a key ally of Britain gets a warm welcome and that our country sends a clear message that we value the special relationship.”

    Always hate to go first, nevertheless –
    How cool is this?! What fun. Too bad we cannot be there to lend the true Trump Rally ambiance.
    Has Mr Smyth been arrested for hate speech yet?

  2. I love it!

    I like the former name, too. I answer to that name sometimes, when people call me that.

    Thank you, Damien Smyth. May your income go up a 1,000,000£ this year and even more the next. At least you won’t have to serve Mayor Sadiq Khan at your establishment.
