Thousands of Anti-Trump Protesters March Through London

Thousands of protesters marched in London on Friday against Donald Trump’s visit to Britain, in what was shaping up to be one of the largest demonstrations seen anywhere outside the U.S. against the sitting president.

Marchers who started gathering Friday morning hoisted placards condemning Trump as a sexist and a racist, banged pots and pans, and chanted in anger. One sign proclaimed: “Super callous fragile racist sexist nasty POTUS.”

A much-ballyhooed balloon of Trump as a snarling baby in diapers flew over the houses of Parliament for a couple of hours, with hundreds of people cheering as it floated upward and organizers hoping to bring it to other stops on Trump’s tour of Britain, especially Turnberry in Scotland, where he will play golf at his resort Saturday.

On Friday, Trump’s official events were all set for outside London, away from the major protests, which appeared to be a concession to his famously thin skin. “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London,” Trump told the Sun tabloid. “I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
