The media has been hyping what they’re calling President Trump’s controversial visit to the UK.
The New York Mag did an extensive hit-piece on President Trump and his visit to the UK:
This week President Trump will become the 12th U.S. president to make an official visit to the U.K., and his trip will be the most controversial by far. Prime Minister Theresa May tried to cement the “special relationship” between the U.S. and the U.K. in January 2017 by being the the first foreign leader to visit Trump at the White House. Though there was talk of Thatcher and Reagan, and a source on May’s team reported that Trump said he wanted their relationship to be even better, it appears there was no spark between the vicar’s daughter and the former reality-TV star. Back home May’s announcement that Trump had accepted her invitation of a state visit was met with protests from politicians and the public.
London’s Muslim Mayor, Sadiq Khan has never hidden his disdain for our President. Mayor Khan has gone as far as to give the green light to activists who requested permission to fly a giant balloon mocking President Trump as a “baby” wearing a diaper.
Pro-Trump citizens have countered the decision of the Mayor to fly the disgusting balloon by hosting a massive fundraiser purchase and fly a balloon of Mayor Sadiq Khan over London to “demonstrate our unhappiness with him as our Mayor of London”.
Former UK Ambassador to the US Sir Christopher Meyer, 74, was beaten bloody by two attackers at Victoria Station in London on Wednesday, hours after he published an essay supporting President Donald Trump’s visit to the UK Thursday. –Gateway Pundit
Nigel Farage tweeted about the beating of the British ambassador to the US:
Thoughts with former British ambassador to the US, Sir Christopher Meyer, who was brutally attacked yesterday. He has been doing a lot of media about how important the Trump visit is. Police say it looks like a robbery – we’ll see.

Conservative UK activist shared a portion of a pro-Trump article that was written only 12 hours before his attack. To date, there is no evidence that the attack was motivated by his political views. According to the Ambassador’s wife, Baroness Meyer, the police have told her “it is more likely they might have wanted to rob him”. Baroness Meyer went on to clarify that nothing was stolen from the former US Ambassador.
Katie Holmes, however, posed the question about the possible connection to his pro-Trump views and the beating he received with her tweet:

The Gateway Pundit reports…His wife, Baroness Meyer, said that he was taking the Tube home when he was attacked. “He looks terrible. His left eye is like a golf ball and bleeding, the nose looks like it could be broken,” she said.
“He hasn’t had an x-ray yet. He doesn’t remember anything. The first thing he remembers is the police.
“At first I thought that the attack was politically motivated. He is opinionated, and sometimes people have different opinions, but the police told me they believe that it is more likely that they might have wanted to rob him.
“Nothing was taken, but the transport police intervened quickly.”
Lady Meyer believes that police have made two arrests in connection with the attack.
Sir Christopher is active on Twitter, where he frequently expresses political opinions. He recently called for Britain to engage with President Trump during his visit, and not to turn its back on him.”
The Metro reported two teens, a boy and a girl, were arrested at the scene.
