While an enormous security operation is underway in Belfast for the arrival of US President Joe Biden, an online image of a banner over a bridge near Newry has suggested not everyone will be rolling out the red carpet.
The image shows a railway bridge in Mullaghglass with the banner reading: "Go Home Provo Joe," in an area where loyalist flags including those for the UVF have been a common sight in the past.
For some unionists, like the TUV's Jim Allister, there remains a perception that President Biden's position is "anti-British and anti-unionist".
Speaking ahead of the state visit, Mr Allister called the President "irredeemably partisan" and said as a Senator he fought any easing of laws which would have allowed wanted IRA terrorists to be extradited to face justice in the United Kingdom."
He also questioned "squandering £7m" (estimated cost of Belfast trip) "to try and put a positive spin on celebrating a "failed agreement."
Making light of the image, GAA commentator and podcaster Joe Brolly posted on Twitter: "I can assure you I will be going nowhere."

Already in the President's "inner circle," Mr Brolly recently chatted with the Commander in Chief during a St Patrick's Day visit to Washington.
His wife, the podcaster Laurita Blewitt, is also a third cousin of the President.
