Tens of thousands of protesters confront Donald Trump in London

London, December 3 (RHC)-- U.S. President Donald Trump will face tens of thousands of protesters during his visit to London this week.  Trump arrived late Monday for a two-day NATO summit but doctors, nurses and other workers of the National Health Service are planning to gather outside the Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

The protesters are planning to highlight potential risks to the NHS in a future U.S.-UK trade deal after Trump said in his last visit to the UK in June that “everything is on the table” -- including the NHS -- in trade talks with the Brits.

The protesters will march from Trafalgar Square up the Mall, and gather at Canada Gate when the U.S. president and other leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization meet Queen Elizabeth II at a drinks reception.  

Some of the speakers at the upcoming anti-Trump demonstration will be activist Tariq Ali, musician Brian Eno, and the general secretary of the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, Kate Hudson.
