The Trump baby blimp which Leo Murray wants to fly over London

London's mayor on Thursday gave a group permission to fly a 20-foot-tall balloon depicting President Donald Trump as an angry baby over London when the president visits the city later this month. "Trump Baby will fly!"

"Trump Baby can become a permanent feature of this awful Presidency, a constant, unmissable reminder of the contempt with which this embarrassment of a man is held by everyone outside of his deranged, bigoted base", the group said.

It will float over Westminster from 9.30am until 11.30am GMT, with strict rules dictating that it must remain tethered to the ground and not elevate above 30m (98ft).

A spokesperson for Khan - who has repeatedly criticised Trump, not least for his Muslim flight ban - said: "The mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms".

Under the plans the inflatable will be allowed to fly for two hours on the morning of Friday 13 July.

Khan has also been critical of a Trump visit, tweeting last fall that "it's increasingly clear that any official visit from President Trump to Britain would not be welcomed".

Khan has been an outspoken opponent of Trump, saying in January that Londoners "have made it clear that Donald Trump is not welcome here", after the president testily canceled a trip to the United Kingdom.

The spokesperson, however, mentioned that "the organisers will also need to receive the necessary approvals from the Metropolitan Police and National Air Traffic Service" for the six-metre orange Trump balloon, which has already gone viral on social media.

Who is organizing the protest?

While Khan himself didn't sign the petition, the opinions he's shared about the USA president would suggest he supports his fellow Londoners. He is expected to meet Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle and see Prime Minister Theresa May at her country retreat, Chequers.

However, he said City Hall had "rediscovered its sense of humour - Trump Baby will fly".
