That is probably one of the many iconic catchphrases one might have spotted in the latest “Dump Trump” resistance against Trump’s UK visit. On Friday (Jul 13), around 250,000 anti-Trump campaigners took to the streets of central London to show opposition to Trump’s four-day trip to Britain, according to Stop Trump, the group organising the protest. Specifically, two successive marches crowded London’s West End on Friday afternoon, culminating in an enormous rally in Trafalgar Square. This came as a result of the UK residents’ anger against Trump’s trampling on fundamental human rights, notably his radical policies regarding women’s rights, immigration, Middle Eastern diplomacy, Brexit and the environment. The best part about this demonstration is that people of a diversity of races, ages and backgrounds gathered at London’s meadows area to set off a 20ft inflatable depicting the US president as a nappy-clad baby holding a mobile phone. Yes – you read that correctly; Trump finally has an unforgettable flying souvenir, all but for the wrong reason.
