The song "American Idiot" was originally aimed at former U.S. president George W Bush.
The "American Idiot" campaign has had a much longer gestation period than similar attempts in the past, having launched in January 2017 ahead of a state visit by the president, which he cancelled over what he saw as a "bad deal" on the establishment of a new US embassy in London.
The campaign asks its supporters to download "American Idiot" between Friday, July 6, and Friday, July 13, to push the single to #1 on the Official Chart. At the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards, Green Day altered the song's lyrics from "subliminal mind-(expletive) America" to "subliminal mind-Trump America".Читайте также: Serena Williams reaches Wimbledon final months after returning from maternity leave

Last week, Senator Tim Kaine referenced the "American Idiot" campaign in a Trump-mocking tweet.
