Trump's first foreign trip, which began Saturday in Saudi Arabia, was also attended by Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross, who shared a curious observation about their Saudi excursion upon his return to the U.S. Monday. "There was not a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time we were there. Not one guy with a bad placard," he gushed in a CNBC interview

He's probably glad he returned when he did. From Tel Aviv to Taormina, protesters took to the streets as Trump stomped through their countries, shoving and name-calling in his own inimitable fashion.  

Here are 20 of our favorite signs from the myriad resistance protests this week:

Live from the Vatican. I hope Pope Francis doesn't feel as queasy as I did, watching the Trump caravan roll in this morning. Terribly surreal. #bridgesnotwalls #Romeresists #trump #unwelcomeguest
