Hundreds Of Thousands Take To The Streets In The UK To Protest Donald Trump (37 PICTURES)

Donald Trump and company finally made it to the UK on on Friday.

His trip had been scheduled months ago but was postponed due to rumors of massive protests.

It seems those rumors were not greatly exaggerated as hundreds of thousands of Brits took to the streets to protest his arrival.

The protests were most likely amplified after Trump's blatantly racist pre-trip interview with the Rupert Murdoch owned Sun tabloid in which he did away with dog whistles and just went full on white nationalist...

 “I think it changed the fabric of Europe and, unless you act very quickly, it's never going to be what it was and I don't mean that in a positive way,"

That kind of talk will get 'em into the streets.

There were two main protests. The larger of the two, estimated at 250,000 people, went directly through central London and culminated in a huge rally in Trafalgar Square.

The second march was undertaken by the women-led Bring The Noise group which was made up of several thousand people.

Smaller groups of protesters also gathered in cities across Britain as the president made his way across the English countryside for a series of meetings.

Additionally hundreds of people gathered in Parliament Square to celebrate the now infamous a 20-foot baby Trump blimp that took flight outside the U.K.’s seat of government.

Here are pictures from the days festivities...

More demonstrations are on the way as there is a protest planned for Glasgow’s George Square on Friday night and a mass rally in Edinburgh, starting at the Scottish Parliament and ending at The Meadows park, on Saturday afternoon.

Smaller protests were expected early Saturday at Trump's hotel and golf course in Aberdeenshire and at Turnberry in Ayrshire.

In an amusing bit of fake news, shortly after arriving, Trump exclaimed...

"I think they like me a lot in the U.K."

Donald couldn't be more incorrect as a poll by YouGov found that fewer than one in five Brits had a favorable view of him.
