There’s A Fan Movement To Get Green Day’s ‘American Idiot’ To Number One For Trump’s State Visit

The best way to send a message to President Trump.

There is a fan movement to send Green Day's 'American Idiot' to number one on the UK charts to coincide with the planned state visit of President Trump.

The planned state visit was announced overnight, with Trump set to touch down on UK soil on Friday 13th of July. As if Trump visiting on Friday the 13th isn't enough of an omen.

In order to appropriately welcome Trump and send a message to the President, fans are actively campaigning for people to purchase the Green Day album to send it up the charts. In a statement posted to the 'Get 'American Idiot' to No.1 for Trump's State Visit' facebook page, the plan is outlined "so if we ALL buy enough downloads of Green Day's 'American Idiot' between Friday 6th-Thursday 12th it will time PERFECTLY to hit No.1 the very day he arrives on UK soil! Streaming counts too but less effective. Let's do this!"

We're pretty confident that Billie Joe Armstrong would be behind this heroic campaign, not forgetting that last year during the American Music Awards he lead a chant of "NO TRUMP, NO KKK, NO FASCIST USA":
