A much larger demonstration was staged in Edinburgh, where 10,000 people weaved through the capital's streets in an anti-Trump protest as amused tourists looked on and motorists beeped their horns in support.
Russian Federation has denied any involvement in the attack and rejected accusations that it interfered in the United States presidential election in a bid to help Trump win. "Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy".
The charges were filed by Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election as well as Russian collusion with Donald Trump's campaign team.
But others say it was important to send a message even if it never reaches Trump himself. "He will come in with his facts, with maps, and I'm afraid that actually the President could be taken advantage of".
"We go into that meeting not looking for so much", he told reporters at a news conference following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.
Republican Senator John McCain said the summit should be called off if Trump is not ready to warn Putin there is a "serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world".
The White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told NBC News on Friday afternoon that the summit is "still on".

He'll now back up Kemba Walker with the Hornets while joining former Spurs assistant James Borrego in Charlotte. Last season saw Parker relegated to a smaller role, however, as he only started 21 of the 55 games he played.
The president is set to hold a summit with Putin next week and pledged as early as hours before Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced the Russian indictments to confront the Rusian leader on a number of topics including meddling in the 2016 election.
Trump later reportedly pressured North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members to double the target to 4 percent of GDP and doubled down on his criticisms of both Germany and the 29-country alliance.
"What Trump does and says in America is a matter for the Americans".
Eighteen Democratic members of the House Foreign Affairs panel urged Trump in a letter to cancel the meeting, saying that "due to your constant expressions of sympathy for Vladimir Putin" the lawmakers "do not have confidence that you can faithfully negotiate with the Russian leader".
Trump has long downplayed Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election and repeatedly referred to Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt". "But considering the discussion among the European allies, not only the Americans, I think we need to ask ourselves consistently what more we can do".
Though an explicit endorsement of Putin's expansionism would be surprising, Trump's evasiveness on the issue coupled with his record of extraordinary statements and actions at global summits has left many on edge.
"But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation".
