Donald Trump returns to London – in balloon form

The Donald Trump baby blimp, which was flown over London's Parliament Square in July 2018 during the then-US president's visit to the UK, has found a new home at the Museum of London.

The 6m-high (19.7ft) inflatable blimp was handed to the museum to mark the departure of the Trump family from the White House, bringing an end to a tumultuous one-term presidency.

At the museum, the blimp will be conserved and eventually displayed to the public.

Dubbed "Trump Baby", the balloon played an important role in the 2018 protests.

Sharon Ament, Museum of London Director, said: “London has always been an open, ever-evolving polyglot city.

"A haven for knowledge, tradition and controversy and over thousands of years we have played host to many a historic protest.

"From the Suffragettes of the early twentieth century to the anti-austerity marches, free speech and Black Lives Matter most recently – the capital has always been the place to have your say.

"By collecting the baby blimp we can mark the wave of feeling that washed over the city that day and capture a particular moment of resistance - a feeling still relevant today as we live through these exceptionally challenging times - that ultimately shows Londoners banding together in the face of extreme adversity.”
