Donald Trump arrived in London this week and was quickly made aware that his presence was not welcome there.
Protesters took to the streets as the baby Trump balloon took to the air. Many protesters wore caps that mocked the president’s campaign slogan: “Make America Great Again. Impeach Me.”
“It is so embarrassing that our government has invited this fascist buffoon back to our country and is giving him the royal treatment, pulling out the red carpet and wining and dining him with our tax money,” protester Ruby Lawson said. “We want to show the world and Trump that this is not O.K., and Trump is not welcome.”
Besides taking to the streets other displays of protest could be found across the region including images of Barack Obama and a hat that displayed the name of the Navy vessel named after John McCain.
One teenager got very creative with his activism.
Ollie Nancarrow, 18, mowed an anti-Trump message in his family’s yard to greet Donald Trump during his state visit to the UK.
Nancarrow spent his weekend mowing the words “Oi Trump” into his lawn, near Hatfield Heath, in Essex.
He used his family lawn mower to etch a giant polar bear, penis and the words “climate change is real” into the grass. Nancarrow says that he hopes that Trump saw his creation from Air Force One as he approached the Stansted Airport, which is not far from his home. Trump flew over the area on Monday and will fly over it again on his return trip to the U.S.
“Donald Trump and his denial of climate change are not welcome and I want him to be fully aware of that when he flies into Stansted on Monday,” Nancarrow said.
Nancarrow is the founder of Born Eco, a website which connects shoppers with eco-friendly traders.
A group of British protesters has projected their feelings about Donald Trump for the world to see.
On Monday, an anti-Brexit campaign called Led By Donkeys announced on Twitter that it was protesting Trump’s visit with a series of large, public projections onto major London attractions.
Those projections included images of Barack Obama and a hat with the name of the Navy vessel named after John McCain on it.
Led by Donkeys also trolled Trump by projecting comments about him on Big Ben. The remarks came from former London mayor, current Brexit supporter and possible next U.K. prime minister Boris Johnson.
Trump was also greeted by a 16-foot tall robotic statue of himself sitting on a gold toilet farting and texting. The robot was put on display at Trafalgar Square.
The “Trump Dumper” cost $25,000 to create and is the work of artist Don Lessum, The statue shows Trump with his trousers around his ankles, with his trademark red tie hanging into the toilet bowl.
It will also makes fart noises and shouts “You are fake news” and “I am a very stable genius”.
Thousands of protesters are expected to rally against Trump’s presence in their country today in Trafalgar Square.
