Protesters marched in Edinburgh Saturday, while police tried to find a paraglider who breached a no-fly zone and flew a protest banner over the golf resort where Mr. Trump is staying. A police helicopter almost drowned out the chants of the protesters in the Scottish capital as they were planning to launch into the sky the giant “Baby Donald” balloon — depicting the president as an angry orange baby.
“It’s not acceptable that a president talks about grabbing women, separates children from their families and gives encouragement to fascist, racists, misogynists and homophobes,” he said. “We are not anti-American, just against Trump and his divisive regime.”
Eli Roth, 56, from California but living in Edinburgh, said he doubts the U.S. president will take notice. “I don’t think anything gets the message across to Trump, but I hope demonstrations like these encourage people in the States to fight the Trump regime,” he said. “We need to show that there are people outside America who care about what is happening and that Trump has a global impact.”
