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

The Trump Baby blimp is due to fly near Parliament on Friday

The Trump Baby blimp is due to fly near Parliament on Friday

The decision to approve the flying of a giant blimp depicting Donald Trump as an angry, orange baby near Parliament has been defended by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

After the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, Trump will head to England, where Prime Minister Theresa May's government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union.

Trump will arrive in Britain on 12 July for a "working visit", a more sober affair than the original plan for a state visit with its customary pomp and pageantry after it drew threats of mass protests.

Americans living in Britain have been warned to "keep a low profile" during Donald Trump's visit to avoid being caught up in "violent" protests.

These events are expected to draw large crowds and close roads.

However, the president's impending trip to Britain has stirred up quite a bit of controversy amongst citizens of our neighbor-nation across the pond, with thousands of protesters expected to take to the streets upon his arrival.

In its alert the embassy said: "The majority of the demonstrations will be focused in central London on July 13, with other events planned for July 12 and 14".

After the visit, Trump will decamp to Finland for a one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin on July 16.

Bilateral talks with United Kingdom prime minister Theresa May will happen at her country home in Chequers, and not at the prime minister's London residence, at 10 Downing Street, as is traditional.

Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent.

Trump will travel by helicopter once there, making it unlikely he'll see protests firsthand.

Even a "Trump baby" blimp will fly with approval from London's mayor.

- After the London Bridge terror attack in June past year, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said people should not be alarmed by visibly increased security on the streets of the capital. Then, Trump will head to Scotland for a few days. "I've always liked him", he said.
