Trump supporters get barricaded in London pub by cops

The Labour leader will attend and speak at the demonstration on the day the U.S. president meets Theresa May for talks.

Mr Trump said he refused a request for a meeting with the Labour leader and dismissed reports of demonstrations as "fake news".

'But I'm very disappointed, particularly today, on the wonderful festival of Eid, that our mayor of London Sadiq Khan has been attacked as he has.

Not only has the giant Trump baby blimp taken to the skies over Westminster once again, but it seems as though the anti-Trump demonstrators have kicked things up a notch by bringing in a enormous robot resembling him in a very compromising position.

UK Labour Party leader Jeremy Corbyn will join a demonstration in London against US President Donald Trump's state visit on Tuesday delivering a speech at the event, according to the party's spokesperson.

The president was asked about the Tory leadership hopefuls after it emerged he had spoken to Boris Johnson earlier today and has asked environment secretary Michael Gove to meet him personally.

'I am proud that our city has a Muslim mayor, that we can chase down Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, any form of racism within our society because racism divides'.


Sky News reporter Beth Rigby had the first question at the joint presser between May and Trump, asking both about the USA president's comments about Sadiq Khan, who responded to a critical op-ed from the London mayor by calling him a "stone cold loser" in a tweet.

Mr Corbyn went on to say: "And so in welcoming visitors from the United States, I hope there can be a conversation". I said: "Where are the protests?"

There were a number of clashes between pro and anti-Trump groups throughout the day.

But when a milkshake was thrown at the defender, he began to lash out at the protesters.

He added: "He's true to his word when he said he wants to make America great again".

Anti-Trump protests are becoming a common affair in London - and whether or not they achieve anything in the long run, they are heartening reminders that people can knock up an excellent placard with a moment's notice. Police officers were also pictured trying to calm angry protesters.

Scotland Yard's Deputy Commissioner Steve House told the London Assembly Police and Crime Committee today the policing plan has so far worked "effectively".
