WASHINGTON D.C. (CNN) – A balloon that has been used for protests against President Donald Trump across the world has been granted a permit to fly during 4th of July festivities in the nation’s capitol.
‘Baby Trump,’ a 20 ft. tall balloon depicting the president as a baby in diapers, will be hanging around Washington Thursday during Trump’s “Salute to America” event.
The National Park Service issued a permit to the group behind the balloon, Code Pink, to display it on the National Mall.
However, there’s only one hiccup ‘Baby Trump’ organizers are dealing with: they don’t have permission to fill the balloon with helium – only cold air is approved.Grab the FREE WDTN News App from the Apple Store or Google play.
