14 Of the funniest protest signs from Trump's UK visit

On Thursday, July 12th, Donald Trump touched down on UK soil for the first time as president of the United States. At first, he seemed rather excited for his visit, and revealed in an interview with The Sun that he was "really looking forward" to meeting the queen.

"She is a tremendous woman. I really look forward to meeting her. I think she represents her country so well," he said. "If you think of it, for so many years she has represented her country, she has really never made a mistake. You don't see, like, anything embarrassing. She is just an incredible woman."

However, there was one part of his trip that he wasn't too keen about: being in London.

Ever since Trump's visit was announced, Brits began planning a mass protest, complete with a giant inflatable "Trump Baby" blimp. "I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London," he said. "I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?"

So, in a show of true courage, the president decided to forgo visiting England's capital altogether. But that didn't stop thousands turning up to march with some truly excellent signs...

These particularly brutal placards seem a good place to kick things off

This teen put her artistic skills to good use

Probably the best pun we've ever seen

You know things have reached a critical point when this happens

These folks know to hit him where it hurts

Bianca Del Rio would be proud

This might take second place in the pun contest

A selection of very British signs

And a couple more

Even a Dalek showed up

He do need some education

The effort that went into these is astounding

Some signs went deeper than others

And finally, this excellent piece of wordplay

Perhaps it was best he didn't show up after all.
