Around 100 Chinese tourists have turned up at Cardiff’s City Hall to watch Donald Trump’s inauguration.
The group was ushered away to a nearby Wetherspoons pub after having the news broken to them.
A passer-by told WalesOnCraic:
“I was heading into work when I saw about 100 Chinese tourists sitting down with picnics and umbrellas. At first, I thought it was some kind of day trip but as I passed by, I noticed that they were holding placards. Some of them read “We Love Trump” while others weren’t so complimentary. I was going to walk on by but I saw a policeman there and I asked him what was going on. He told me that he had no idea so he went over to them and asked them. I could see the disappointment on their faces as they were walking away. The copper took them to The Crockerton for a few pints. I felt a bit sorry for them but that’s life innit.”
One of the Chinese tourists said:
“I got here at 6am for sod all. We really thought it was the White House. I now intend to get shit-faced so please leave me alone. Thanks.”
