Inflating the Baby: Trump Protest Balloon Flies Over London

Watch as Londoners inflate "Baby Trump"

Protesters in London welcomed President Trump to the United Kingdom with a special airborne tribute - a balloon in his likeness, dressed like a baby. The balloon flew near Parliament for two hours, with London Mayor Sadiq Khan's official permission. It was just one piece of the massive protests in London timed to coincide with President Trump's meeting with British Prime Minister Theresa May, which was taking place at her country home 40 miles outside of the city. President Trump told British newspaper The Sun of the protests, "I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no reason for me to go to London."
