Donald Trump Baby Blimp Enters Museum of London Collection

The Trump Baby Blimp has been “consigned to history” after being acquired by the Museum of London. The giant inflatable depicts US President Donald Trump as a baby with a nappy and mobile phone. The balloon first took to the skies over Westminster during Trump’s state visit to the UK in 2018. The 20ft effigy has since travelled to protests in France, Ireland, Argentina and various locations across the United States. It has now found a “final resting place” at the Museum of London, where it will be conserved and potentially displayed as part of the museum’s protest collection. Report by Avagninag.
