The Trump baby blimp balloon will fly above London's skies once again to greet Trump on his official state visit to the UK, but this time, it could be up to five times bigger.

Anti-Trump campaigners are set to take to the streets of London in protest against the president's second visit to the UK, which Buckingham Palace announced will take place from June 3-5 this summer.

Organisers of the protests hope that the large orange blimp, which depicts Trump as an angry nappy-wearing infant, will again act as the focal point of the protests.

Leo Murray, who helped crowdfund the blimp last year, said:

We’re quite sure that all British people of good will are going to be ready to run Trump out of town for a second time.

He added:

We have been toying with the idea of a Trump baby hot air balloon, which would be about five times the size. But would cost a huge amount of money – upwards of £70,000

Since it first appeared at the London protests, the blimp has also made appearances in California, New York, Paris, and Dublin, reports the Independent.

Theresa May hailed the visit as a chance for the UK and the US to 'strengthen our already close relationship', and the White House said that it would 'reaffirm the steadfast and special relationship' between the two nations.

Get ready, the blimp IS BACK!
