THE Donald Trump baby blimp will make a comeback during the US president’s state visit to the UK in June.
The six-metre-high balloon, which depicted Trump as a nappy-wearing infant, was first hoisted in Parliament Square during his visit to Britain in 2018. Campaigners say they are hoping to stage an even bigger demonstrations in June.
Leo Murray, who helped crowdfund the original six-metre-high inflatable, said they are planning a bigger baby blimp this time around.
“The Trump baby will definitely fly again,” Murray was quoted as saying by the Guardian.
“We have been toying with the idea of a Trump baby hot air balloon, which would be about five times the size. But would cost a huge amount of money – upwards of £70,000.”
Asad Rehman, an organiser of the Stop Trump Coalition, said: “Wherever it flies it will be close to Buckingham Palace and Donald Trump will have no option but to see himself up there in the sky. We have to negotiate where and when but we’re confident it will be flying.”
Trump will make a three-day state visit to the UK from June 3 to 5.
Prime minister Theresa May said Trump’s visit was an “opportunity to strengthen our already close relationship in areas such as trade, investment, security and defence, and to discuss how we can build on these ties in the years ahead”.
Trump and First Lady Melania will be guests of the Queen adn they will attend a ceremony in Portsmouth to mark 75 years since the D-Day landings.
Trump will also have talks with the prime minister at Downing Street.
