"I really do care" shirts have made their way to London

From CNN's Laura Smith-Spark

Ann-Marie Fields, 44, attended today's protest in London wearing a shirt that reads, "I really do care. Don't u?" — a protest slogan that's become popular at anti-Trump administration rallies in the US.

The shirt is a reference to the controversial jacket Melania Trump wore on the day she visited a US facility holding immigrant children separated from their families. The first lady's Zara coat read "I really don't care. Do u?"

In the days after Trump wore the jacket, American protesters rallying against family separations at the US border began wearing similar shirts. Many were spotting at the June 30 immigration rallies.

Trump sat in Winston Churchill's chair

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders shared a photo of President Trump sitting in former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill's seat at Chequers.

Current British prime minister Theresa May hosted Trump at Chequers, the British prime minister's country retreat, this morning. They held a bilateral meeting and then took questions at a news conference.

Trump is fond of Churchill: In 2017, he restored the bust of Churchill to the Oval Office immediately after assuming the presidency.
