This Giant Trump Baby Balloon May Follow Him Around the World

By Daniel

When U.S President Donald Trump goes to London on July 13th, he will see many protesters and a big floating balloon called “Trump Baby”.

London mayor Sadiq Khan gave permission for the balloon to fly above the city after a group raised over $30,000. The mayor says he approved it because he supports free speech, which people can express in different ways. The balloon will be flown near the UK government building.

The group responsible for the balloon says it could follow the president around the world, which the creators said is possible because they have raised more money than they asked for. They also asked people to contact them if Trump plans to visit their city.

The creators said they got the idea because they say Trump is like a big angry baby, who gets upset easily. They also say he dislikes other races and is a danger to women, immigrants and is a big threat to the world.

They went on to say Trump doesn’t care about morals, but he really hates it when people call him names. Before it flies in other cities, the balloon will also need permission, but the London mayor’s approval could mean other cities will also agree.

British people upset with Trump have also started an effort to try to get Green Day’s American Idiot to the top of the music charts, but even if it doesn’t hit the top, Billie Joe Armstrong shouting “don’t wanna be an American Idiot” would be a great soundtrack for the Trump Baby.
