There are reportedly more than 60 protests scheduled to take place throughout Trump’s four day working visit to the nation, with roughly 50 to 100,000 people expected to come out to oppose the president, according to CNBC.
Many marchers began gathering Friday morning, hoisting signs and placards condemning the president over his policies and charged rhetoric. One protester is even gathering attention on social media after coming dressed in a “Trump Dalek” costume to an anti-Trump protest. Daleks are one of the most feared fictional races on the popular British television program "Doctor Who."
Protesters also flew a blimp depicting Trump as a baby over Parliament Square.
Though Trump previously said on Thursday that he believes London citizens “like [him] a lot,” despite reports of multiple planned protests against him, Trump later said he feels “unwelcome” in London due to the planned protests.
“I used to love London as a city,” Trump told The Sun newspaper. “I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
Trump’s schedule only has him in London for one night and will largely avoid the planned protests.
In January 2017, more than 1 million people in the U.K. signed a petition demanding Trump's visit there be canceled following his executive order blocking refugees and people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States.
