ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. Several thousand people demonstrated outside the U.S. embassy in London on Saturday (January 4) against President Donald Trump and his temporary ban on refugees and nationals from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States. One male protester described Trump's ban as "an Islamophobic policy, purely based on someone's religion", while another female protester held up a poster reading "As if" - a quote from the nineties film Clueless, to voice her 'horror' at Donald Trump. Protesters held black banners with blood stains bearing slogans such as "No to Islamophobia," and "Shame on you Theresa May" at the demonstration against the ban and Trump's foreign policy. Trump signed an order just over a week ago putting a four-month hold on allowing refugees into the U.S. and temporarily barred travellers from Syria and six other Muslim-majority countries. On Friday (February 3), a Seattle judge blocked the order. Many in Britain are angry about the measure, which they see as discriminatory, and the time it took for Prime Minister Theresa May's government to criticise it.
