President Donald Trump rowed back yesterday on his comments that Britain's much-loved national health service should be opened up to U.S. private companies in a post-Brexit trade deal.
Trump was on a 3-day state visit to the United Kingdom which started on Monday and ended on Wednesday with commemorations of the 75th anniversary of D-Day.
"I seem to remember the president suggested that I sue the European Union, which we didn't do", she said. "The big crowds, which the Corrupt Media hates to show, were those that gathered in support of the United States of America and me".
But "because of the way British police placed security barriers", the newspaper explained, "m$3 ost of the demonstrators were out of his sight". In a bout caught on camera, one anti-Trump demonstrator snatched a red "Make America Great Again" hat off a Trump supporter, before the two nearly went to the ground.
"Your values and what you stand for are the complete opposite of London's values and the values in the country, " Kahn said of Trump.
Trump and the first lady also toured the Churchill War Rooms, the British government's underground command center during World War II, and were shown a copy of the Declaration of Independence after the news conference. Tens of thousands of anti-Trump demonstrators took to the streets on Tuesday to rally against the USA president's policies, including NHS privatisation, wars against Venezuela, Cuba, Iran, and China, as well as his stance on environmental issues, amongst others.
The mercurial United States leader also softened his tone on UK Labour opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn and actress-turned-British princess Meghan Markle.
The man, from London, who did not want to be named, said he was "angry" and claimed he had to "fight off" protesters.
A jumbo-sized inflatable Baby Trump balloon flew over the rally in Parliament Square, making front page news on both sides of the Atlantic.
Protesters in Dublin on Thursday hoisted the "Trump Baby" inflatable blimp that has become a staple of rallies against the USA president, who was due to spend his second night in a row at a golf hotel he owns in Ireland. "Tens of thousands of voices joining together, despite the rain, despite it being a Tuesday afternoon, to make their feelings about Trump and his divisive politics clear".
Trump told reporters Tuesday that he had turned down Corbyn's request for a private meeting because he was "something of a negative force".
Although Corbyn did not mention Trump by name, it was made clear by the organisers that the message was directed at him.
Yet, while President Trump remains deeply despised by many, the significance of his visit - and importance of Anglo-American relations - were quietly highlighted by the Queen's speech at the Buckingham Palace state banquet which was another example of soft power at its most effective.
