But the Northern Ireland residents say they won't be fooled.

“They reckon the vehicles will let them patrol the fields around the hotel unnoticed — but they’ll stick out like sore thumbs," one local told The Sun.

The president will also reportedly travel in a bomb-proof vehicle nicknamed "The Beast," which features 8-inch-thick armor plating on its doors and puncture-resistant tires.
