The protests against Trump's state visit continued Tuesday, including a protestor dressed in an inflatable Trump baby costume.

The group “Together Against Trump” organized demonstrations at Buckingham Palace, in Trafalgar Square and vowed to march “wherever [Trump] is.”

Tens of thousands had been expected, but an exact crowd size was not immediately available.

“This is about sending a strong message that people in the U.K. don’t accept the divisive right-wing policies that Trump stands for, and that inviting him for a state visit is totally inappropriate,” the Stop Trump Coalition said in a statement.
