Trump Dismisses UK Protests as 'Fake News'

President Donald Trump on Tuesday dismissed the thousands of people protesting his state visit to the UK as “fake news,” The Hill reports.

Although the crowds were smaller than the tens of thousands that protested his visit last year, thousands took to the streets of central London on Tuesday, where Trump was meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May in Downing Street, according to Euronews.

During a press conference with May, Trump said, “I heard that there were protests, I said where are the protests, I don't see any protests. I did see a small protest today when I came, very small. So a lot of it is fake news, I hate to say. ... I didn't see the protesters until just a little while ago and it was a very, very small group of people put in for political reasons, so it was fake news."

Axios released several photos showing protestors with anti-Trump signs and displays, including several insulting balloons and placards. Several Trump supporters were also spotted, many wearing red “Make America Great Again” baseball caps.

Trump criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan in a tweet just before arriving on Monday, calling him “a stone cold loser,” who has “done a terrible job,” after Khan wrote that it’s “un-British to roll out the red carpet for Donald Trump,” in an op-ed for The Observer.
