    President Trump's four-day state visit to Britain has been met with protests, which were scheduled well in advance by campaigners, to express their opposition to the US president's policies.

    Tens of thousands protesters have gathered in the British capital to march against the US President Donald Trump on Friday. The crowd has assembled in central London to march through the streets towards Trafalgar Square.

    ​The organizers of the rally called on participants to use hashtags #CarnivalofResistance #Resist #StopTrumpism when posting content in relation to the march online.

    ​Activists turned up holding various posters and placards with different messages about and directed at Mr. Trump.

    In addition to the main attraction — the 'Trump baby' blimp — protestors held dolls and cutouts mocking the US president.

    The baby joke seems to have stuck, with placards on display urging Trump to "fly away baby."
