UK to build steel wall to protect Trump during visit: Report

British authorities are planning a massive wall at the site of a World War ll memorial to protect US President Donald Trump during his state visit to the location in June as public outrage about the controversial trip continues to grow.

The leader of the local council in the southern English city of Portsmouth revealed on Thursday that authorities will encircle the location of events to mark the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in the city with two steel layers of security fencing to prevent the public from reaching the site where Trump will be present along the British queen to attend the memorial.

Gerald Vernon-Jackson, a Liberal Democrat, expressed his huge fury at the plans, saying it would deprive the public from paying their tribute to the war veterans.

“The ceremony itself will be behind solid steel barrier walls so people won't be able to see into it and it will now be invite-only,” said Vernon-Jackson, adding that the UK government was clearly worried about protests against Trump which could affect the memorial.
