The streets of London are lined with protesters rallying against President Donald Trump's visit to the United Kingdom.
The Trumps arrived Thursday evening for a black-tie dinner. The couple were welcomed at the palace in Oxfordshire — about 60 miles outside of London — by Prime Minister Theresa May and her husband Philip, before witnessing a performance by the Scots, Irish and Welsh Guards military bands. Anti-Trump protesters lined the road up to the building, but it is unlikely the Trumps — who arrived via helicopter — saw them.
Tens of thousands of protesters plan to rally against Trump's four-day trip in London on Friday. Protests are also planned at locations including Windsor, where Trump will meet with Queen Elizabeth II. Since the president will travel by helicopter to locations, it is unlikely he'll actually see the demonstrations.
In addition to the multiple marches planned, one group of anti-Trump protesters inflated a balloon of a baby 'Donald Trump' on the second day of the US President visit to the UK.
A crowd of bystanders assembled in a square opposite the Houses of Parliament as the Trump blimp flew overhead. The balloon suddenly deflated and came to a rest on the ground as its crew appeared to be preparing to take it to Scotland.
A number of people in red jumpsuits and hi-visibility yellow vests with the words “Trump babysitter” written on their backs stood guard inside the cordon that separated he blimp from the crowd.
A smaller balloon will accompany tens of thousands of protesters when they march to Trafalgar Square in London this afternoon.
USA Today will be covering the events live in the player above on Friday.
