President Donald Trump has some fans in the United Kingdom as a group of supporters cheered him on outside of Buckingham Palace.

The president is currently in the United Kingdom on a state visit to the country by Queen Elizabeth’s invitation. As IJR News previously reported, Trump is only the third president to be given the honor of the trip, which prompted many to protest.

However, there were some supporters outside the palace, and according to the Washington Examiner, they sang “For He’s a Jolly Good Fellow” to welcome the president.

As Trump was leaving the palace, supporters broke into chanting his name as well as “U.S.A.!”

Watch them greet him:

As the president arrived, people gathered outside the gate to catch a glimpse of the helicopter, shouting out “he’s here” and cheering.

Watch his arrival:

Sporting “Make America Great Again” hats, some supporters even expressed their excitement over having him in their homeland and explained how much they were looking forward to his visit.

See what they had to say:

Although not everyone gathered were fans of the president, the chants of his supporters were met with no pushback.

Watch UK supporters chanting below:

Part of Trump’s visit will be to join in commemorative ceremonies for the anniversary of D-Day in London and Normandy. While the state visit is ceremonial and Trump will not be addressing political issues with the country’s leaders, some are dissatisfied that the president was given that privilege.

A senior administration official claimed that there “is no better time to have a state visit to the United Kingdom than the 75th anniversary of D-Day.” Yet not everyone agrees, with protesters planning an event outside Buckingham Palace for Tuesday.

“The UK should be turning its back on Trump’s harmful and divisive politics and not honouring his agenda with a state visit. We will be standing up to normalizing a racist, misogynist, Islamophobic leader who is a climate crisis denier,” said Mohammed Ateek, who is part of The Stop Trump Coalition.

Although they are expecting to have thousands of participants, the group of Trump supporters showed that not everyone shares the protestors opinion.
