Hordes of demonstrators converged in central London on Friday, intent on mocking U.S. President Donald Trump on his only full day of business with British leaders on what has been dubbed a “working visit” to the United Kingdom.
The visual cornerstone of the anti-Trump protests on Friday which include several organized marches by varying groups is a giant balloon depicting the U.S. leader as an angry, screaming orange baby in a diaper, clutching a cell phone with Twitter on the screen.
London Mayor Sadiq Khan, who has clashed for months on Twitter with Mr. Trump, had to give the final approval for “Trump baby” to fly.
Mr. Trump has acknowledged that he feels unwelcome in the British capital, suggesting it was part of the reason he wasn’t spending much time there during his U.K. visit.
“Trump baby,” as the balloon is known, will be flown high over Parliament Square in London, but Mr. Trump is spending the day miles away from the center of the British capital.
Tens of thousands are expected march through the streets of London to protest the American leader’s visit to the U.K., his policies on issues ranging from immigration and race relations to women and climate change.
