'Trump Baby' blimp will fly again during President's visit to London, organizers confirm



Donald Trump is coming back to London -- and so is the "Trump Baby" blimp. A 20-foot-tall balloon depicting the United States President as a wailing baby in a nappy will fly over London again during his upcoming state visit in June, protesters have confirmed.

Organizers are also looking at ways to scale up their protest -- having decided against raising funds for an even bigger hot air balloon.

"The original Trump baby blimp will definitely be back," Leo Murray, one of its creators, told CNN. "We are looking at other creative interventions we could make," Murray added. "We'd looked into commissioning a bigger balloon, including getting quotes for hot air balloons -- but decided against it as it's so expensive."

The blimp became the defining image of massive protests in London during Trump's working visit to Britain last year, flying next to the Houses of Parliament as hundreds of thousands took to the streets. Organizers said 250,000 people attended.
