Freedom Bridge, Wisbech TUC's Bridges Not Walls protest to coincide with Donald Trump's inauguration as president of the United States of America

I was having a discussion with my friends the other day about Donald Trump and none of us could understand what all the fuss is about and why he has become such a hate figure in this country.

I am not saying he is perfect, but there are world leaders far worse committing the most horrendous acts known to humanity, yet there is not a single protest in sight. And where were all the protestors when we were being threatened over Brexit by Barack Obama demanding we stay in the EU or go to the back of the queue for a trade deal with the USA? So let’s all thank our lucky stars and stripes that Obama is no longer President. As for Jo Rust and her merry band of protestors, next time you feel the need to get your placards and banners out, may I suggest you do it for the real evil and tyranny that is going on in this world instead of jumping on the ‘I Hate Trump’ bandwagon.
