Really looking forward to the President's tweet about how terrible & overrated an actor David Tennant is. And how Matt Smith was the better Doctor.pic.twitter.com/epGRuxyBg3— Graham Love (@GLove39) August 4, 2018
Tennant, who is best known for portraying the Tenth Doctor in the British television series “Doctor Who,” made the remarks during an appearance on “The Last Leg" on Friday.
Trump was met with thousands of protesters during his visit to the United Kingdom in early July.
The president said at the start of the trip that he believes citizens in the region “like me a lot,” despite reports of multiple planned protests, including one featuring a 20-foot-tall inflatable baby bearing his face that was scheduled to be flown during his visit.
Trump later told The Sun newspaper during the visit that he felt “unwelcome” in London due to the protests, however.
“I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London,” Trump said before heading over to Scotland, where he was also met with protesters.
