    During his visit to the United Kingdom, US President Donald Trump met with the queen of England, Elizabeth II, as well as with UK Prime Minister Theresa May, amid mass street protests staged by Britons angry at the American leader.

    Shortly after concluding his official visit to Britain, US President Donald Trump told the media that the queen of England had reviewed the royal guard on the occasion for the first time in the last several decades.

    "We met with the Queen who is absolutely a terrific person, where she reviewed her honor guard for the first time in 70 years, they tell me," Trump said.

    As many media outlets and social media users pointed out, however, the queen has reviewed her honor guard on many occasions during the last 70 years, often during visits from prominent foreign officials.

    On the day of Trump’s arrival to the UK, on July 13, over 100,000 people staged a protest rally in downtown London, with the public mocking the US president by flying a giant balloon portraying him as a screaming toddler.
