Liberty Nation is on the ground in London, bringing you full coverage of all the demonstrations taking place today related to President Donald Trump’s visit. As the president meets on Downing Street with soon-to-be-gone Prime Minister Theresa May, separate groups of protestors have gathered both outside No.10 and in Trafalgar Square.
We’ll be updating throughout the day, so keep checking back in for news, interviews, pictures, and reporting — and be sure to follow us on Twitter or Facebook. Once you’re caught up here, check out our updates from later in the day.
London, 9:45 EDT: Of course, the British people aren’t all anti-Trump, as those organizing these protests would have us believe. Some — not many, but some — turned out to support the American president. While early reports suggested as many as 100,000 protesters might attend, we estimate the actual turnout to be perhaps as many as 10,000 at the most.

London, 9:35 EDT: As Liberty Nation’s Mark Angelides explains via video the situation on the ground, the atmosphere is a mix of anger and jubilation. Protesters happily curse words at the small pro-Trump crowd.
Protesters against importing chlorinated chickens … dressed as chickens — how clever.
Even the handmaidens came out to protest.
Video footage of London is being spread on the internet of crowds marching. Many of these are from 2018. The propaganda war continues.
The Stop Trump coalition says: “Trump is coming back for a state visit and we have to get out there again in a diverse Carnival of Resistance that shows we reject Trump’s divisive politics and policies of bigotry, hate and greed.”
Early reports suggest that there could be over 100,000 people gathering in the capital today. Many have traveled in on coaches organized by the Stop Trump Coalition.
