​Trump Made To Feel 'Unwelcome' By Giant Baby Blimp

​Trump Made To Feel 'Unwelcome' By Giant Baby Blimp

You may have heard the news that Donald Trump is in the UK, having made a trip across the pond for his very first appearance in Britain under his presidential label.

But while he's in the country, he's going to have to swerve the thousands of people who are busy taking to the streets to protest against him.

A big part of the protests against Trump will be giant Trump Baby, a 20ft orange blimp depicting the world leader as a crying baby - something that's clearly hurt his feelings.

Speaking to The Sun, Trump revealed that he'd been warned about the Trump baby blimp that would be flying above Parliament Square, saying: "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?

"And when I say that I am talking about government because the people of the UK agree with me."

He reckons London mayor Sadiq Khan is to blame for allowing the blimp to take flight.

Trump continued: "You have a mayor who has done a terrible job in London. He has done a terrible job. Take a look at the terrorism that is taking place. Look at what is going on in London."

He added: "He might not like the current president, but I represent the United States."

The giant floating baby has been approved by City Hall but could still be deflated and taken down by the Met or National Air Traffic Service.

Until then, it'll be floating around at Parliament Square Garden, right next to the Houses of Parliament.

Having arrived with wife Melania straight from the NATO summit - where he's criticised other nations over their defence budgets and accused Germany of being 'controlled by Russia' - Trump has a fairly busy itinerary pencilled in for his big Britsh adventure.

Along with a meet and greet at the US Embassy, followed by a swish black tie dinner with Theresa May at Blenheim Palace, he's also expected to have tea with the Queen on Friday, before he heads up to Scotland for the weekend.

He'll be welcomed by the Scottish secretary of state when he reaches Scotland, then he's expected to spend the weekend at his South Ayrshire Turnery golf resort before he heads back to the States on Sunday.
