Anti-Trump protesters have followed the US President from London to Portsmouth, posting images of the inflatable baby blimp around the port city. Veterans expressed anger at the action, labelling the move disrespectful to the memory of thousands of brave troops who risked and lost their lives during one of the biggest military operations in history. Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage slammed plans for the demonstration earlier this week, labelling it “utterly inappropriate”.
Darren Jones, a veteran from Essex, told of Express.co.uk: “As a former soldier, I find it disrespectful that these people are protesting on a day of remembrance for heroes who gave us so much.
“Today isn’t about Trump, whatever people think of him, or politics at all.
“For these protesters to call their event ‘People’s D- Day’ is totally wrong.”
