Baby Trump Balloon Approved By London Mayor To Be Flown During Visit

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan will allow protesters to fly a blimp over the parliament portraying Donald Trump as an orange, snarling baby during the U.S. president's upcoming visit, his office said on Thursday, citing "the right to peaceful protest".

When President Donald Trump visits London on July 13, he will be greeted by a 20-foot-high baby version of himself flying over Parliament.

The planned grounding point for the blimp is Parliament Square Gardens, right next to the Houses of Parliament. "However the organisers will also need to receive the necessary approvals from the Metropolitan Police and National Air Traffic Service in order for it to fly", a spokesperson for Khan tells NPR.

The inspiration for protest via the balloon, according to Murray, is that, "moral outrage is water off a duck's back to Trump, but he really seems to hate it when people make fun of him". The ballon will not be able to fly higher than 98 feet, and local law enforcement agencies that regulate airspace could potentially still kill the stunt day-of.

"P$3 eople have been SO generous and supportive that we now have WAY more money than we can sensibly spend just on Trump's United Kingdom visit in July!"

During his short visit to the UK, Trump is also due to meet Queen Elizabeth II, most likely at Windsor Castle which is miles outside London. Mayor Khan approved the petition, which is no surprise since he and Trump do not get along.

However, he said City Hall had "rediscovered its sense of humour - Trump Baby will fly".

He says he is in "a lot of pain" because the team knew it could go further in the tournament and "make history". The question is whether Tite will want to stay - many say he already has offers from some top European teams.

The inflatable Trump Baby is six metres tall. Not only will a giant baby version of him fly over the parliament building holding a cell phone and angrily crying in his diaper, but also 50,000 people will march through the city to protest his presidency.

"But this never ending war of words between Sadiq Khan and Donald Trump is frankly ridiculous", he said.

After his comments, Trump attacked Khan, saying he was the one who was "ignorant" and challenging him to an IQ test. Relations have deteriorated from there, including one jab from Donald Trump, Jr., who criticized Khan's handling of the London terrorist attacks of last summer.

Johnson said he and officials are "all aware of" the blimp and that the president is focusing on his goals for the trip and "appreciates free speech, both in this country and in our country".

A Twitter account used by the organizers quipped that Khan "tried to play hard ball - in the end he had to make a Deal".
