Trump: ‘I don’t see any protests’ in London, so they’re fake news

As thousands of protesters flooded the streets of London to rally against President Trump’s state visit to the U.K., Trump dismissed reports of the demonstrations as “fake news” and “very, very small.”

“We left the prime minister, the queen, the royal family, there were thousands of people on the streets cheering and even coming over today there were thousands of people cheering,” he said.

Instead of protesters, Trump said during his trip he saw people waving the American and British flags, describing the scene as “an alliance.”

“And then I heard that there were protests,” he said. “I don’t see any protests.”

He added: “I didn’t see the protesters until just a little while ago and it was a very, very small group of people put in for political reasons. So it was fake news.”

There were audible “booing” as Trump and May exited 10 Downing Street for their short walk to the courtyard where their press conference was held.
