Christian MP joins Trump protest claiming President breeds division not love
Christian Labour MP Stephen Doughty joined tens of thousands on the streets of London on Friday to protest the visit of Donald Trump to the UK.
During his visit, the US president held meetings with Theresa May and the Queen before travelling to Scotland where he has business interests.
Many had claimed he shouldn't be given a state visit because of the division he has caused in the USA.
Explaining his reasons for protesting, Doughty the MP for Cardiff South and Penarth, told Premier's News Hour: "As a Christian MP, his attitude towards refugees, his attitude towards women, his attitude towards locking up children in cages, separating them from their families and of course his war-like and often very, very aggressive rhetoric.
"This is someone who espouses the very worst of things, you know, breeds division instead of love."
Protesters also lifted a large balloon depicting Trump as a baby near Parliament.
Sarah Elliot, a Christian and Chair of Republicans Overseas UK dismissed the attempts of the protesters to ridicule Trump.
Speaking to Premier she said: "It was up for two hours, I think it was a little ridiculous and a waste of time and money but everybody has the right to free expression."
