The US president's two-day official visit to the UK has been surrounded by controversy, starting with his interview with The Sun, where he criticized Prime Minister Theresa May’s approach to Brexit, and ending with demonstrations against his policies in London.

Social media has exploded in outrage after White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders posted a photo of US President Donald Trump sitting "arrogantly," as some British tabloids referred to it, in former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill's armchair. Many Twitter users claimed that Trump was "unworthy" of sitting in a chair that had belonged to the former British PM, who played a key role in saving the UK from Nazi Germany.

There were those, however, who drew parallels between Trump and Churchill, recalling that the latter was not as much of a saint as some Brits think, even going as far as to say that they might have become friends.

Some twitterians admired Trump's work, suggesting that it is comparable to that of the wartime British PM.
