Campaigners started a crowdfunding campaign to raise the money to fly a six-meter balloon of Trump as a baby in a nappy over London.

Khan's office indicated the group would ground its balloon in Parliament Square Garden, near Big Ben and Westminster Palace.

It will fly between 9.30am and 11.30am on Friday 13 July - coinciding with thepresident's visit to the United Kingdom and a "Stop Trump" march in central London.

"The Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms", Khan's office told Sky. The mayor's operations team met with the activists and gave them permission to use the square as a "grounding point", the outlet reports. The group is working with Met police and the Civil Aviation Authority to ensure the airspace is managed safely on the day.

The blimp will be allowed to fly for two hours at a maximum height of about 100 feet, says organizer Leo Murray, who first conceived of the idea of a Trump Baby blimp.

"A petition to prevent Trump from making an official state visit "because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen" drew almost two million signatures and received Parlimentary debate in February".

Governor: 49 missing as boat overturns in seas off Thailand
The Phoenix - which had 105 people on board, mainly Chinese tourists - went down in stormy weather late on Thursday afternoon. Thai divers scoured the wreckage of a boat with Chinese tourists that sank in a storm off the resort island of Phuket .

Campaigners raised nearly £18,000 for the helium-filled six-metre high figure, which they said reflected Mr Trump's character as an "angry baby with a fragile ego and tiny hands". The pair have exchanged barbs on social media, with the former slamming Khan's response to terrorism in the capital, while Khan has previously hit back at Trump's controversial travel ban. But he really seems to hate it when people make fun of him.

People aren't exactly thrilled that Donald Trump will be visiting our shores in an official capacity later this year, but at least we have this, at least we have a giant fuck-off blimp to fully showcase our displeasure.

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

But he also told Channel4 News that a state visit by the U.S. President should be cancelled.

Khan has been openly critical of President Trump, and he was also the subject of one of Trump's Twitter attacks last summer.
