U.S. President Donald Trump's first visit to London as a world leader has been marred by crowds of angry protests that continued on day 2 of the presidential visit.
Protesters carried homemade signs calling for the U.S. president to leave England. One protester wore a gorilla suit and protested from inside a wire cage. Another protester dressed in an inflatable Donald Trump incorrigible baby costume and demonstrated in Parliament Square as Trump and First Lady Melania Trump visited 10 Downing street for a meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May sand her husband Philip May.
The protest against Donald Trump has stopped London. We've listened to inspiring speeches from many of the shadow cabinet and others. We've made a noise where we thought he was to tell him he is not welcome in Britain and the atmosphere stays positive. Alan. pic.twitter.com/dfKUUCPTpo

Outside, angry crowds booed as Trump and his daughter, Ivanka, left 10 Downing Street. One woman held a sign that read: "Trump, you are SO NOT welcome here." Another protester held a sign telling the U.S. President, "Nobody likes you." Hundreds chanted "Donald Trump, go back home!"
Trump also got the cold shoulder from Prince Harry during his visit to Buckingham Palace on Monday. Harry was not amused that Trump reportedly called his wife, Meghan, "nasty" after she refused to meet with him and Melania during their trip. Trump denied making the remark about the Duchess of Sussex.
Despite the protests, Queen Elizabeth II seemed to be tickled by Trump during the ceremonial welcome at Buckingham Palace on Monday. First Lady Melania Trump wore Dolce & Gabbana, Celine and Dior. She was styled by Herve Pierre.
President Trump's three-day state visit began with lunch with Queen Elizabeth II, followed by a State Banquet at Buckingham Palace. On Wednesday, Trump traveled to Portsmouth to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
Trump was unbothered by the protests. He commented on his very vocal supporters who greeted him wherever he went.
"Coming over today, there were thousands of people cheering," he said. "And then I heard that there were protestors, I said where are the protests? I didn't see any protests."
Hours later, as if on cue, the sky opened up and hundreds of demonstrators scattered to find a dry spot to wait out the downpour.
For a while, at least, the U.S. president was right: there were no protesters in the streets of London Town.
