Billionaire Donald Trump says the massive demonstration that rocked London during the weekend will “absolutely happen” in the United States because of the economic policies of the Barack Obama administration.

More than 250,000 people took to the streets in London on Saturday to protest Britain’s toughest spending cuts since World War II.

Appearing on “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning, Trump said about the demonstration: “I think very strongly it is going to happen here, if Obama continues and remains our president, because he’s not fighting for us.

“He’s allowing other countries to take advantage of us. OPEC is a joke, what they’re doing, and China. I mean, most of our money’s going to OPEC and China, and we don’t have money for our people.

“So I would fully say that if this attitude persists, it will absolutely happen in the United States, and bigger and better than what you’re watching over in London.”

The real estate tycoon, who has announced he is strongly considering a run for president in 2012, added: “We’re spending money, and we’re losing money and jobs to other countries. If this weren’t happening, you wouldn’t have to make those social cuts. We have people who absolutely have no idea what they’re doing running this country.”

Most of Saturday’s demonstration was peaceful, but clashes continued into the night as dozens of protesters pelted law enforcement officers with bottles and ammonia-filled light bulbs, set several fires and smashed shop windows.

Britain’s spending cuts will likely result in the loss of half a million public sector jobs and a $28-billion reduction in welfare payments.
