Trump visit during Nato Summit to be met with protests

ANTI-WAR protests will “welcome” US President Donald Trump to London during the 2019 Nato summit, campaigners announced yesterday.

Mr Trump will also be visiting the Queen during the summit in December, who will be hosting a reception for Nato leaders at Buckingham Palace.

Stop the War Coalition convener Lindsey German said: “Trump will be coming here the week before an election and will endorse [Prime Minister Boris] Johnson.

“We need an alternative to war, militarism and racism — an anti-war government and a mass demonstration against Trump and Nato.”

Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament general secretary Kate Hudson said: “Nato is a hugely dangerous and destructive nuclear-armed alliance with the capacity to destroy all forms of life many times over.

“This is no time to celebrate and welcome it to London. It’s time to put an end to Nato, and build the peaceful, just world that we want to see.”

Crowds will be assembling in Trafalgar Square on December 3, from 4pm before setting off towards Ms Windsor’s luxury home.
