The ‘Trump Baby’ flies at last year’s protests

Sadiq Khan, the Mayor of London, has compared the language used by Donald Trump to rally his supporters to that of "the fascists of the 20th century" in an explosive intervention ahead of the USA presidents state visit to the United Kingdom that begins on Monday.

Mass protests have been planned for President Donald Trump's upcoming state visit to the United Kingdom, just a year after the giant "Trump Baby" blimp sparked controversy in London.

They must wait for final approval from the Metropolitan Police, who are expected to give their decision on Monday.

They've set a target of £30,000.

"Trump will try his best to avoid the public on his trip, but with Trump Baby flying we're sending a very clear message of solidarity to those affected by his despicable politics - and saying loud and clear that the USA president doesn't deserve the red carpet treatment being given to him by the Government".

"All we need now is for the public to help us to hit our fundraising target in support of the groups who are fighting the impacts of Trump's disastrous policies".

"We've promised to get the baby in the air again - but only if and when we raise money for these groups".

"Trump will try his best to avoid the public on his trip, but with Trump Baby flying we're sending a very clear message of solidarity to those affected by his despicable politics - and saying loud and clear that the USA president doesn't deserve the red carpet treatment being given to him by the government".

In an interview with the "Sun" Saturday, Trump defied diplomatic convention - which dictates that leaders do not weigh in to the domestic politics of other nations, particularly ahead of visits - by backing Boris Johnson to succeed Theresa May as British Prime Minister.

He will then visit Downing Street, before hosting a dinner at the residence of the United States ambassador when he will be joined by the Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.

Several public protests are being planned including one due to start at 11am on Tuesday morning in Trafalgar Square.

The Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament is the latest to announce its involvement, pledging to protest against Trump's "nuclear brinkmanship" and "penchant for tearing up nuclear treaties".

LONDON mayor Sadiq Khan said Britain should not be rolling out the red carpet next week for Donald Trump's state visit to the United Kingdom as he is "somebody whose views we disagree with".
