And London Mayor Sadiq Khan said Thursday that protesters will be allowed to float a giant balloon caricature of Donald Trump outside Parliament next week as the U.S. president makes a visit to the United Kingdom. The 20-foot-long “Trump blimp” depicts the president as an angry orange baby, wearing a diaper and clutching a cellphone, ready to tweet. Protesters, including Stop Trump activist Shaista Aziz, say hundreds of thousands of people are expected to march against Trump and his policies during next Friday’s visit.

Shaista Aziz: “And what we say to Donald Trump is, ’You’re very welcome. Please come. Come and see the carnival of resistance. See it for yourself, hear it for yourself, and feel it for yourself. And if you don’t show up this time, the next time you show up, we’re going to be here. We’re waiting for you.’”
