The orange – hued blimp was inflated in parlement Square at around 9.30am. As a crowd of onlookers cheered, the 20 feet balloon rose slowly into the air as it became  filled with air.
It flew at a height of about 30 meters (98 feet) for two hours, fluttering over Westminster Abbey and high above the statutes of prominent historical figures including Winston Churchill, Mahatma Gandhi and Millicent Fawcett.
Blimp organizer Leo Murray told CNN the giant balloon had been designed to speak to Trump “in a language that he understands, which is personal insults.”
Protesters gathered from early in the morning to watch the balloon go up. “No one really wants him to be in power … he’s not welcome in the UK, said Holly, a protester from London, who didn’t give her last name. “It’s bollocks,” she said.
