When President Donald Trump goes to London next week, he'll be greeted by a 20-foot-tall orange baby with his own face floating over Parliament, NBC News reported.

It's one of many protests planned for Trump's first visit to the United Kingdom since taking office; a grander official state visit appears to be on ice after at least 1.9 million Brits signed a petition opposing it.

Trump's July 13 visit to the U.K. will include talks with Prime Minister Theresa May, a meeting with the queen and possibly some golf at one of his Scottish resorts.

On Thursday, Leo Murray won permission to fly the crowdsourced, helium-filled Trump blimp, having said that ridicule is an effective form of protest against the president: "we want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him."
