The Donald Trump baby blimp has taken flight over London again

It has become a regular fixture of Trump’s visits

The notorious Donald Trump blimp has taken to the skies over London again on Tuesday morning.

It is, of course, to coincide with the US President’s visit to the UK this week.

The balloon was inflated in Parliament square, ready for a day of protesting.

The 20ft blimp was made possible by a crowdfunding campaign launched in response to Trump’s visit to the UK in 2018. over £36,000 was raised fly the ballon during his stay.

“Donald Trump is a big, angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands,” the group’s crowdfunding page said. “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.”

“Moral outrage is water off a duck’s back to Trump,” the group added. “But he really seems to hate it when people make fun of him.”

When asked about the stunt by The Sun in 2018, Trump said that the blimp made him feel “unwelcome” in the capital and he saw “no reason” to visit the city. He said: “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London.

“I used to love London as a city. I haven’t been there in a long time. But when they make you feel unwelcome, why would I stay there?”
