Trump Balloon Could Come to NJ

A balloon that flew in London to protest President Trump’s trip could be on its way to New Jersey.

The giant orange balloon depicts Trump as a baby and features him holding a phone in one of his hands.  It was used in protests in the UK, with thousands taking to the streets in London to demonstrate against the president's visit last week.

NJ Advance Media reports that a group of activists in New Jersey have raised enough money to buy the balloon and bring it to the state.  They set up a GoFundMe page and reached their $4,500 goal in less than a day.

"The baby Trump is not just a piece of humor, but it is also a symbol of the administration. It's symbolic of the children that are in cages, it's a symbol of racism, and we know that he hates to be ridiculed," activist Didier Jimenez told NJ Advance Media.

He hopes the balloon will arrive by next month.  The balloon could be flown in Bedminster where President Trump often spends weekends in the summer.

"I saw that as a gift to us in the sense that the balloon is a tool to enable us to go after the president in a humor kind of way," Jimenez said.
