Now we’ve got a report about the big #TrumpProtest today in London to mark the #TrumpUKvisit. @realDonaldTrump stayed away, complaining the British public had made him feel “unwelcome.”

250,000 turned out to tell Donald Trump he is not welcome here.

We did not march because we hate the United States of America. We marched because we love America. The America of Jefferson, Roosevelt & Martin Luther King, who have set a standard for the world. #TrumpProtest
Every single one of the many thousands in the sea of the #TrumpProtest today was on the right side of history. Together with our friends across the United States, we can stand up to this President's divisive politics of hate.
A pleasure to speak to @NPRKelly on @NPR about where yesterday's protests fit into our two countries' shared history. We marched because of the closenesss of our relationship, not in spite of it.…

In central London to cover the #TrumpProtest this afternoon. This is the scene currently on Regent St. March will soon begin moving toward Trafalgar Sq. Police on scene tell me the turnout is much larger than they expected.
I met Kaya Mar, an artist who painted this piece for the #TrumpProtest. He is Spanish but has lived in London for 42 years. "I'm here to show contempt for Trump," he says. "Because of his policies & the way he is behaving. It will take many decades to clean up the wreckage."
Human rights activist Peter Tatchell is here, fresh from a trip to Russia where he was arrested. "The march is a msg of solidarity to the American people who oppose Trump," he says. "Trump's regime is a menace to democracy & human rights not just in the US but around the world."

Down at the #TrumpProtest in Parliament Square. Lots of the placards are handed out by the Socialist Workers' Party, Stop the War, and Friends of Al-Aqsa (FOA). There's plenty of sheer obscenity. And large pockets where the smell of cannabis is overwhelming. #TrumpUKVisit
Some kind of song put together by the activists down at the #TrumpProtest. #TrumpUKVisit
The Shadow Secretary of State for Women and Equalities, @DawnButlerBrent, spoke at the #TrumpProtest in Parliament Square and managed to get the word "fuck" into her speech. So that was progressive and brave. #TrumpUKVisit
