The 20-foot-tall Trump Baby balloon — which depicts the president as an orange-hued, nappy-wearing, mobile phone-toting, ranting baby — was first seen flying over the heads of an estimated 250,000 protesters in London on Friday, following Trump’s arrival in the capital city.

The balloon then traveled to Scotland, where it accompanied 10,000 more protesters marching in Edinburgh.

Seeing Trump Baby’s extensive news coverage abroad inspired Hillsborough, New Jersey, activist Didier Jimenez-Castro to see if he could bring the balloon stateside.

In the GoFundMe campaign he launched on Friday, Jimenez wrote that he and some other local grassroots activists ‘agreed we need to bring Baby Trump to Bedminster where he plays golf on the regular.’

The private Trump National Golf Club Bedminster, in Bedminster Township, New Jersey, is considered by Trump officials to be the ‘Summer White House.’ Trump’s most recent visit to the course was in late June.

The Trump Baby GoFundMe surpassed its $4,500 goal in less than 24 hours. So far, more than 250 people have pledged $5,960 to the campaign.

On Saturday morning, Jimenez tweeted, via @trumpbabytour, ‘Thank you to all of your generous donations to make this happen. Baby Trump will arrive in the US in about 4 weeks.’

He also wrote that he would be ‘putting together a team of experienced organizers from the Resistance to manage the tour’ and urged people to nominate other locations which would benefit from a Trump Baby visit.

‘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 told NJ Advance Media, adding that he worked with the People’s Motorcade to raise money to bring the balloon over.

Jimenez called the balloon ‘a symbol of the administration,’ noting that Trump Baby was ‘symbolic of the children that are in cages,’ as well as a ‘symbol of racism.’

Trump Baby also appealed because, ‘we know that he hates to be ridiculed,’ Jimenez said.

Jimenez said that the Trump Baby balloon is expected to arrive in America by mid-August. The extra GoFundMe money will be put towards sending the balloon to other Trump protests along the East Coast.
