A petition and crowdfunding campaign have succeeded and the giant baby will fly next week.

After a petition was signed by more than 10,000 people and a crowdfunding campaign raised over $20,000, London Mayor Sadiq Khan has given the green light to allow a “Trump Baby” balloon to fly over the capital during President Trump’s visit next weekend.

City officials originally denied permission for the balloon to fly over Parliament Square.

According to Sky News, the balloon will fly between 9.30am and 11.30am next Friday (the 13th),  which is when the president’s visit to the UK  is scheduled, along with a “Stop Trump” march through central London.

They also reported that the group behind the protest are working with the Met and the Civil Aviation Authority to ensure airspace over London is safe that day.

On their crowdfunding page, the Trump Baby UK group writes that, “Donald Trump is a big, angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands. He’s also racist demagogue who is a danger to women, immigrants and minorities and a mortal threat to world peace and the very future of life on earth.”

The Mayor’s office of London issued a statement saying they support the right to peaceful protest, which can take many forms.

Hopefully the wind won’t mess up the Trump Baby’s hair.
