Trump's visit to Britain faces mass protest marches and a giant baby blimp

Campaigners plan to ridicule the president, whose visit is deeply unpopular.

LONDON — A 20-foot-tall inflatable orange baby with the face of President Donald Trump could float over Britain’s parliament next month, one of many acts of protest planned to coincide with Trump's first visit to the U.K. since taking office.

Tens of thousands of demonstrators are expected to march in London, Scotland and elsewhere during his trip, which takes place amid a growing transatlantic trade war and global dismay at the treatment of immigrant families at the U.S. border.

Britain is keen to reinforce its special relationship with Washington as it prepares to leave the European Union, a divorce that will shape the country’s standing in the world.

But Trump's visit has already been scaled down after months of back-and-forth; the president canceled plans to open the new U.S. Embassy in January and his official state visit — opposed in a petition by at least 1.9 million Brits — appears to be on ice.

President Trump should have them over to Washington rather than put up with this nonsense.

Who cares?

In the 1980s, they were worked up over Reagan’s standing up to the Soviets.

Today they’re upset Trump is giving the middle finger

NBC cheers the “Protesters”, maybe including themselves as “We”.

Two morons with a bumper sticker would be described as “deeply unpopular” by NBC. They’ll lie and exaggerate no matter what happens.

Many Communists in England.

Was watching a BBC “roundtable” show and while they were all lefties, one in particular stood out. Her opinion: the EU was necessary i order to make ensure that the citizens of an individual nation could not elect the wrong ( in her eyes) people.

The shows of “moral superiority” are not convincing. Britain has opened its borders to rapists, and has allowed them to rape and get away with it.

Trump doesn’t want that to happen here.

I am a Yuge Anglophile (and if there are any Brits left on FR, I love youse guys), but I think maybe Pres. Trump should stay home. He’d get a better welcome in NK, FFS.

England’s Media did what ours is trying to do to us now. England lost this battle we will not.

The British have never been big on freedom.

Its been the other way around.

No wonder they want Trump to stay home. I think he should oblige them.

Foreigners only know the info that our PravdaMedia exports. They haven’t a clue, except that most foreign countries are pretty far Left, too. So they buy into the exported American propaganda from our Media. Sorry.

With Tommy Robinson and others in jail Trump should stay home and not visit July 13th.

His “Friday the 13th” visit to the UK will bring out the crazies anyway.

The president should ignore the whole damn bunch of them and go to Poland.

P.S. I don’t trust them to keep our president safe. They toss their young girls to the muslim invaders without even blinking.

I think you are right. The millions of non-Brits who have supplanted the voice of the people in UK don't want him there, Mz May certainly doesn't want to deal with him and Trump should send a diplomat to tell them if they stay on their present course they are all f##ked.
