Over 250,000 expected to protest Trump during UK visit

Police officers will reportedly be deployed in the nation’s capital of London for the upcoming state visit in anticipation of massive protest rallies during his three-day stay. The US president was also met with thousands of protesters during his first state visit to the British capital last year. Corbyn accuses Trump of meddling in UK politics The development came as UK’s Labor opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn blasted Trump’s recent remarks endorsing Conservative front-runner Boris Johnson as the next British prime minister, describing it as an “unacceptable interference” in Britain’s affairs. Corbyn, who has rejected an invitation to attend a state banquet with Trump during his visit, further stated, “President Trump’s attempt to decide who will be Britain’s next prime minister is an entirely unacceptable interference in our country’s democracy.” His criticism of the US president came after Trump said of the former British foreign secretary:  “I think Boris would do a very good job. I think he would be excellent.” Corbyn also emphasized in a statement on Saturday: “The next prime minister should be chosen not by the US president, nor by 100,000 unrepresentative Conservative Party members, but by the British people in a general election.” Trump arrives in Britain on Monday for a state visit at the invitation of Queen Elizabeth before attending World War Two commemorations in France and visiting Ireland.
