Protesters have unfurled five 20m-long banners opposite the US Embassy to “resist” the US president’s “trashing of human rights”.
Amnesty International’s banners on Vauxhall Bridge say “Resist sexism”, “Resist racism”, “Resist hate”, “Resist cruelty” and “Resist Trump”.
Air Force One landed at Stansted Airport this morning. The Queen will host a state banquet at Buckingham Palace later today
Mr Trump will hold talks with Theresa May and attend a D-Day commemoration during the visit.
In a tweet insulting London’s Mayor Sadiq Khan, Trump said “Kahn reminds me very much of our very dumb and incompetent Mayor of NYC, [Bill] de Blasio who has also done a terrible job”.
He then says Khan is “only half his height”.
Since you are here
Since you are here, we wanted to ask for your help.
Journalism in Britain is under threat. The government is becoming increasingly authoritarian and our media is run by a handful of billionaires, most of whom reside overseas and all of them have strong political allegiances and financial motivations.
Our mission is to hold the powerful to account. It is vital that free media is allowed to exist to expose hypocrisy, corruption, wrongdoing and abuse of power. But we can't do it without you.
