A giant airship representing Donald trump As a baby in a diaper, who followed the outgoing president of the United States on his visits to London and symbolized international opposition to his administration, it has secured its place in history after being acquired by a British museum.
The 6m tall airship “Trump Baby” was created before the president’s first visit to the UK, when hundreds of thousands of British people took to the streets of the country to protest their presence in the country.

It will now show up in the London museum Along with other remnants of public protests in the British capital, the institution announced on the eve of Trump’s departure from the Oval Office.

“We hope the baby’s place in the museum will be a reminder of when London stood up to Trump, but will prompt those who see him to examine how they can continue the fight against the politics of hate,” the team behind the blimp said in a statement. .

The balloon was made famous around the world when the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, whom Trump has frequently denigrated, gave permission for it to fly over the city during his initial visit.

Since then, he has followed the president on his travels around the world, appearing in Washington dc and at several of Trump’s international rallies and tours.

“This large inflatable was only a small part of a global movement, a movement that was led by marginalized people whose Trump policy was in the most danger,” said the creator of the airship.

“London has always been an open and ever-evolving polyglot city. A haven for knowledge, tradition and controversy and over thousands of years we have hosted many historic protests,” said Museum of London Director Sharon Ament.

By collecting the baby blimp we can mark the wave of sentiment that washed over the city that day and capture a particular moment of resistance, a sentiment that is still relevant today, as we live through these exceptionally challenging times, which finally shows Londoners uniting in the face of extreme adversity. “

Trump is overwhelmingly unpopular in the UK and several other major countries, and studies have shown that America’s global image has collapsed under his leadership.

Fewer than 1 in 5 people in Canada and Western Europe were confident that Trump would do the right thing in international affairs, according to a Pew study in September.
