Trump Just Whined About Feeling ‘Unwelcome’ In London After Large Protests
Donald Trump said during an interview with British tabloid The Sun that he feels “unwelcome” in London after being received with protests during his visit.
Trump had claimed early Thursday that the citizens of London “like me a lot,” despite multiple reports announcing protests against him.
One of the reports stated that one protest would include a 20-foot-tall inflatable baby bearing Trump’s face.
But after being asked about the “baby” blimp, Trump reportedly told The Sun newspaper: “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.”
“I used to love London as a city,” Trump continued in the interview. “I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
“And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the UK agree with me,” Trump said of being made to feel unwelcome.
Trump went on to claim that “many people are delighted” about his four-day stay in the U.K.
“I get thousands of notifications from people in the UK that they love the President of the United States. They want the same thing I want,” he said.
Trump went on to claim that he is the “most popular person in the history of the Republican Party. Beating Lincoln.”
“I beat our Honest Abe,” Trump added. “But the people of the UK, and I’ll bet if you had an honest poll, I’d be very strong. They want the same thing I want. I love the U.K.”
It is unclear what poll Trump meant.
Trump may claim that people in the U.K. like him, but 90,000 people are reported to be protesting the U.S. president’s visit.
