The British activist group Led By Donkeys is leading the charge with a series of images projected onto landmarks across London, including a side-by-side comparison of Trump’s dismal approval rating versus Obama’s, on the Tower of London.

“We’ve got to have good relations with the U.S., but I don’t think we should be rolling out the red carpet,” said Khan in an interview about the pageantry surrounding Trump’s visit. Trump’s reply: “He is a stone cold loser who should focus on crime in London, not me…”

Okay, sure.
