Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has approved the flying of a blimp depicting President Trump as a diaper-clad infant. The balloon will float over the city during the president’s visit to the U.K.
President Trump will visit Britain from July 12th through the 15th. Nearly two million people signed a petition demanding that U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May revoke Trump’s invitation, but as May declined to disinvite him, large-scale protests are planned. More than 50,000 Brits are expected to march against Trump in London this Friday. The “Trump Baby” balloon was created by activist Leo Murray, and will float over Westminster, the area of London that serves as the seat of the U.K. government.
Mayor Khan has had a long-running feud with President Trump. Khan, London’s first Muslim mayor, seems to have attracted the president’s ire by criticizing his Muslim ban, and Trump responded by challenging the mayor to an IQ test.
After eight people were killed and nearly 50 injured in the 2017 terror attack on London Bridge, Trump took to Twitter to criticize Khan’s response. “At least 7 dead and 48 wounded in terror attack,” he wrote “and Mayor of London says there is ‘no reason to be alarmed!’”
After Trump’s U.K. visit, Baby Trump will hit the road—activists have raised more than $30,000 to take the blimp around the world.
