President Donald Trump is currently on his first official state visit to the United Kingdom.
Ahead of his trip, an online petition against his visit had received more than 1 million signatures.
Protesters were outside Buckingham Palace as the Marine One helicopter flew overhead to his meeting with Queen Elizabeth II.
The protests ramped up Tuesday for the second day of Trump’s trip, when thousands were expected to gather in London’s iconic Trafalgar Square and march to Parliament, blocks away from Trump’s meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May.
