The whining, diapered Trump balloon is flying and sign-waving crowds are deriding the U.S. president in London today. Perhaps he'll tune in to  TV coverage.
But he might not find the news to his liking.

Mr. Trump declared on Thursday in Brussels that, "I think they like me a lot in the U.K."

According to recent surveys by non-partisan British polling organization YouGov, only 11 percent of Britons said they thought Mr. Trump was a "great" or "good president." By contrast, 67 percent said they believed he was a "poor" or "terrible president."
Theresa May probably thinks even less of him now following his trashing of her in a newspaper interview released shortly after their dinner together.

As all knew it would, the baby blimp has gotten under Trump's skin. AP concludes the European trip is typical Trump — more show than substance.
