Trump UK visit: More than one million Londoners ready to demonstrate against US president, survey suggests

16 May 2019

The Independent reported that more than one million Londoners are ready to demonstrate against Donald Trump’s visit to the UK next month, a survey suggests. A staggering 13 per cent of the city’s 8 million residents say they are “likely” to join the protest, which would make it among the biggest in the country’s history. And Londoners of all ages oppose Mr Trump’s trip by a margin of more than two-to-one, with 54 per cent against it and just 24 per cent supporting it, according to the poll by YouGov and Queen Mary University of London.
