Donald Trump had a grand day rolling around in all of the pomp and circumstance that the United Kingdom offered him. Fortunately, there have been no major incidents, but that is only due to the Brits impeccable manners. There was one noticeable occurrence, though.
When Trump was on the verge of his trip to England, he insulted the very well-liked Duchess Meghan Merkle. He called her “nasty.” The American born actress-turned-princess recently had a baby, so she had an excellent excuse to stay away from the festivities. Her husband Prince Harry though, had to attend. Even so, he kept his distance from Trump. Of course, POTUS did not notice He tweeted a professional quality video which will probably show up in his campaign for 2020:

Then, Trump tweeted out his day 2 events:
‘The Duke of YorkVerified account @TheDukeOfYork
‘On Day 2 of the
#USStateVisit, The Duke of York & Prime Minister @TheresaMay welcome President Donald Trump @POTUS to St James’s Palace for a UK/US Senior Business Leaders Group Breakfast Meeting.’
Trump has been putting out a number of these videos. They certainly did not include the infamous Trump Baby blimp that the Brits flew over London with thousands of protesters below. Since the U.S. president used a helicopter instead of a motorcade to get from place to place, he missed most of the action.
This year, there was a big robot with Trump sitting on a toilet tweeting away on his smartphone. Over 9,000 people registered on Facebook to attend a protest at Trafalgar Square. An additional 33,000 said they were attending “Together Against Trump — stop the state visit” event.
A spokesperson from “Together Against Trump” told ABC News:
‘On 4 June thousands of protesters will be marching to surround Trump as he joins Theresa May on a visit most believe should never have happened. We will be bringing central London to a standstill. By the time he leaves he will know, and the world will know, that people here reject him and his toxic politics.’
