    I would have thought for a country (America) which stands behind "Freedom of Speech" they would have embraced the mass protests. Irrespective of your personal views on Donald Trump he is The President of The United States of America. He is their representative. It's called manners - sorely lacking in this modern world.

    A leader who is openly racist should not escape protests just because he is the US president.

    Of course not. Donald should be on the front foot here and say he respects those people who oppose him, his views and is thankful he is visiting a country which allows such protests. Cancelling the trip just enforces the view he doesn't support Freedom of Speech...or my (Donald's) point of view.

    Whatever happened in his childhood, whatever his father did to him, he's a 70-year old snowflake man-child, a grotesque narcissist, who craves and demands constant adulation and he's used to getting it from all the nodding sycophants he's surrounded himself with all his miserable life.

    He envisions his visit to Britain as President being driven in a gold-plated carriage with the Queen while endless masses are in a hysterical frenzy of constant orgasms at the mere sight of his sorry overweight behind.

    He finally got the message that's not going to happen.

    Since he's incapable of withstanding the smallest ounce of criticism, let alone mass protests -- the way he cuts interviews and walks way when he doesn't like a question is a good illustration of how acute his insecurity is -- he'd rather stay away, while inventing transparent excuses and blaming his favorite villain Obama.

    Bloomberg has a doozy of a report on Trump and May's relationship. Some of the highlights:

    - “She’ll be my Maggie,” Trump reportedly told his aides, referring to Reagan and Thatcher.

    - May's team considered having Trump & Melania stay with Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace and attending a state banquet in his honor, believing such treatment would appeal to Trump's vanity.

    - "Amid warnings that Trump would face protests in the streets when he arrived, he told the prime minister he would not be coming to the U.K. until she could promise him a warm welcome."

    :lmao:What a pathetic insecure douchebag.

    I hope this is true because that will never happen. I'm on permanent standby to protest against him should he decide to visit our country.

    Yes, there will be a massive protest against him in London which I will be going to. So far, 40,000 people have already signed up to take part.

    Rumour has it, Trump is too scared to visit London because he doesn't want to face protesters so he will avoid the capital altogether and may just visit Scotland. I imagine there will be a protest in Scotland too if he decides to go there.

    I very much doubt he will go tot Buckingham Palace. If he meets the Queen it will probably be at Winsor Castle or maybe the Palace of Holyroodhouse in Scotland.

    I don't think Britain and America have been so far apart. Special relationship my eye. What with Canada, China and Europe anti Trump I don't think America has been so isolated. Perhaps that is what trump and his supporters want. America first, well guess what, that is what you have got!

    Just back from the anti-Trump demonstration in London and it was packed. A quarter of a million people were estimated to have taken to the streets in the capital to protest against Trump's racism, misogyny, Islamophobia, his withdrawal from the Paris climate change agreement, his treatment of refugee children and his treatment of Palestinians. It was a peaceful and good humoured protest in the baking sunshine. The message from so many Londoners is that Trump's policies of hate are not welcome here.

    So we arrange a beautiful dinner at the wonderful Blenheim Palace for the President. He could not even smile. He seemed bored. I have been round Blenheim Palace and it is stunning.

    Winston Churchill a great war hero and the way Trump looked and behaved was appalling and when I saw the imbecile walking with the Queen, her majesty was almost Do-si-do-ing round the revolting orange hamster.

    Apparently, a quarter of a million people took part in yesterday's anti-Trump protest in London, that's more than the number of people that turned up to see his inauguration.

    Trump claims the people of Britain love him.

    :confuse:
