That's their platform, it's all they got.

Trump is seen as the bastion of the right wing currently.

People who do not associate with right wing ideologies will not agree with this. Hence, the protests. It happens.

Just as humans have this need to almost worship what best represents their life and mindsets, they also despise and almost obsess on the opposite. This goes both ways, left hates right, right hates left. The out spoken and most heard are the ones that will be recognized, and heard.

The main problem I see right now is that left wing politics and ideologies have become this sort of romantic idea of what could be, but no actual 'leader' to the idea or someone to look to. Most left leaning people who champion the idea are hyper intellects who are rather off the radar and aren't leaders. Whereas most people who champion capitalism and right wing ideologies fit right into the mold of competition, leaders and those who want to 'win'. As much as Trump is a terrible leader at uniting people, he is amazing at winning and getting people to do what he wants them to do, on top of this he's great at making divisions between ideas.

He's a nazi.

All conservatives are nazi's.

Everyone I don't like is a nazi.

Fear of their own imaginations and pure narcissism. They were promised Trump was the harbinger of a neo-fascism, nuclear war, the end of NATO, and economic ruin. But rather than admitting they were wrong they double down and betray their own allies.

Well a lot of vitriol about lefties in this thread, if I vote conservative and dont like Trump, where does that put me


He may not be liked for things he did prior to becoming pres, such as his golf course in Scotland

Trump boasts about his controversial Scottish golf course

Donald Trump’s Scottish golf resort ‘let off hook’ by planners

Billionaires shocking treatment of Scottish family

So maybe some people dont like him as he directly impacted on their lives

I always thought him a buffoon prior to becoming pres, i also believe all politicians are buffons, so Trump is no different in my mind.

Lol yes, I remember reading such things before he was elected, the dead would rise from their graves while the sky was falling as well! 😂
From a British perspective the fact he hasn't dragged our forces into any wars is good enough for me.
If the loony left in the UK want to protest anything they should be at Parliament shouting about our arms sales to Saudi Arabia which are being used to kill civilians by their thousands.
That doesn't seem important enough to them though, bunch of Muppets.

The issue is about why mass protests organised by The left though.
Is his golf club thing more important than say arms to Saudi to storm London over?
Is being a buffoon more important than Brexit to raise millions of people?

You get my stance on this I hope, it just seems the most pointless protest ever, but it has infected the left like an unverified political meme which has gone viral on social media.

I was thinking about this. Just like how people in atlantic city in New Jersey hate him, not because of him now, but because of him before.

The Only thing Britannia Rules Nowadays are the Knaves . A Progressive Liberal Social Experiment Concocted by Fools gone Horribly Wrong that is Destroying the Very Fabric of it's Anglo Culture . A Man like President Trump Represents Everything they Fear that might somehow Destroy their Pursuit of a Pipe Dream Socialist Utopia . Oh how the Mighty have Fallen ..........(

Given the FACT that Trump threw microwaved hot slices bologna, like little frisbees, at Russian hookers in a motel room, he's a SEXIST and needs to be impeached.



best story ever!!
is this before the urine showers or after?

Star for the well written post 👍
It's not that bad here yet though, just the media give it large with scary headlines, and the left wing activists are just the loudest shouting usually.
Pity they don't feel so passionate about real issues instead of "Orange man bad", it's pathetic, but these socialist worker poster carrying rabble do not represent the majority of Brits.
...yet 😱

Just prior. The crazy part was how Trump actually brought the microwave with Him. And carried it in Himself.

Trump's a weird dude. He sat there for like an hour heating them up one by one.

I don't get it, what has he done so wrong to provoke such anger compared to some of the despots who have had state visits and a cup of tea with the queen over the years?
Trump baby blimp back and could be even bigger for state visit


“We are very confident there will be more than a quarter of a million protesters. Trump’s visit last year mobilised a large number of people, but a year later the man has done more to rip up human rights, step back from international norms, continued his climate denialism and fuelled white nationalism."

What human rights has he ripped up?
Which international norms are they whining about?
Climate change denial? Well, 90% plus of scientific academia in the world disagree with him so I'll concede that, but really? The protest will not change his policy, so if you want to be holier than thou then protest the UK government to get our own ship in order for carbon neutrality first.
Fuelled white nationalism? Give me a #ing break, his border and immigration policies are less strict than the UK's, nothing to do with race, if I overstayed a visa in the US I'd expect to be kicked out if caught, and I'm white as snow.

I'm no fan of him, but he's better than the loony Dems from everything I read, Hilary would have dragged Britain into another war if she had won, but Trump is less gung ho killing brown people and wasting money/resources.

So to Brit members especially, why do you think the left (including London's mayor and senior opposition politicians) have such a bee in their bonnets about Trump having a chit chat with her Majesty - and why the outrage when the UK has given state visits to some real tyrants in recent years? Few hundred people at best when the Chinese leader came.

US members please do chime in your thoughts, it must seem as crazy to you as it does to me with all the things going on in the world to protest over.

All thoughts welcome, I've been to many protests in London over the years, but protesting Trump is one of the last reasons I'd catch a train to London for.
I'd probably get arrested for ripping up their stupid Socialist Worker posters up lo! 😂


The UK is much further along the road of leftist totalitarianism. It also lacks the same freedom of speech laws that exist in the United States. Leftists have a much easier time silencing anything or anyone that threatens their totalitarian utopia.

No other reason that Trump being a threat to the left wing gestapo that has taken over most of the UK.

See, consensual sex stuff wouldn't bother me about leader of my nation, just can they do a good job running the place.
He could dress up in Furbie costumes while finding alternative uses for wine bottles for all I'd care if it harms nobody else, not my business. If he can do his job then so what I say.

I live in the UK now and its the media portrayal. They all hate the guy. No reasons given. And it doesnt matter what the guy did.

If peeps in the US talked as much smack about May or the Royal Saxe-Coburgs their would be war.

Britain is split right now, left/right leave/remain (EU), just the left/remain camps are organised by the Labour party and the national trade unions so seem to be the popular view. Don't believe the hype though.

Mass hysteria of weak minds, easily controlled by a media pushing the vile cancer of Progressivism. Same with the EU coverage... weak minds told that the world will end unless we stay in.
