British activists projected gigantic images on London landmarks intended to irritate President Donald Trump during his visit.

Trump arrived Monday in the United Kingdom, and anti-Brexit campaign group Led By Donkeys projected an image of a U.S.S. John McCain cap projected onto Madame Tussaud’s and U.K. approval ratings for Trump compared to former President Barack Obama.

“We read the story about the sailors on a U.S. warship being ordered to hide from you because you’re triggered by the name on their hats,” the group tweeted. “So we turned Madame Tussaud’s into a giant USS John McCain baseball cap. Welcome to London!”

The group projected an image onto the Tower of London showing Obama with a 72-21 approval rating over Trump.

“Just so you know,” the group tweeted, “you’re wildly unpopular here in Britain. SAD! People REALLY don’t like you (though they love @BarackObama). Hope you like seeing your FAILING approval numbers projected onto the Tower of London.”
