In video - 'Trump Baby' explores London's skyline

July 13, 2018 2:04 P.M. (Updated: July 20, 2018 9:30 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- A giant balloon depicting the United States President Donald Trump as a baby wearing a diaper has taken flight over London’s skyline protesting Trump's visit to the UK, on Friday.

According to organizers of the protest, the giant orange balloon of President Donald Trump stands at six meters tall and features a giant baby diaper with tiny hands holding a mobile phone.

The London mayor’s office gave permission to fly the giant balloon but set strict conditions for this protest to take place; the giant balloon was allowed to fly up to no more than 30 meters for two hours on Friday morning, that being from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. local time in central London.

The launch of "Trump Baby" kicked off widespread protests against the US President Donald Trump’s controversial visit to the United Kingdom; the protest started outside the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) building in Portland Place before travelling through Oxford Circus and ending up in a rally at Trafalgar Square.

Some 55,000 social network users announced their intention to participate in the London protest.

The protest appeared to have the support of many foreigners currently spending vacation or visiting London.

Organizers mentioned that they have raised around 20,000 British pounds through a collective funding platform to create this helium-filled giant.

The video below shows the "Trump Baby" preparing to take off over London:
