Giant Diaper-Clad ‘Trump Baby’ Blimp Now Set for a World Tour

GETTY FILMMAGICRudy Guiliani said London Mayor Sadiq Khan should focus more on crime in London than President Trump

Khan has criticized Trump repeatedly over the president's political views, saying earlier this year that Trump is "not welcome" in London. "Whatever Sadiq Khan thinks about Donald Trump, he should not put that personal enmity above the fact that President Trump is the leader of the biggest and most important country in the world". "So instead of 1000 tiny balloons, we have ordered a half-size Trump Baby created to be filled with air - he's made from thicker plastic so he's a lot less fragile than the big boy - meaning he can join in the protests and knock about with people in the crowds".

Trump Baby, designed as a statement of protest as Trump visits the United Kingdom this weekend, was brought to life by a crowdfunding campaign, which exceeded its initial £5,000 (S$9,000) target so exponentially that there are now plans to take the balloon around the world, following - and taunting - the USA president wherever he goes.

The sad news for Trump Baby is that Trump himself apparently won't be spending much time in London itself and is unlikely to see his inflated, infantile likeness in person.

Trump arrives in London the day before and will stay in the capital on that night, but he will then move to Chequers before the protests kick off on Friday.

Now, that's anything but child's play. Demonstrators, complete with floats, will march from the BBC building at Portland Place through Oxford Circus and Regent Street towards Trafalgar Square, where there will be a rally in evening.
