During President Donald J. Trump's upcoming visit to England, this giant balloon of a caricature of his likeness could be flying 100-feet overhead. 

London mayor Sadiq Khan approved the balloon flight after more than 10,000 people signed a petition and just a little over one thousand people have raised over $20 thousand in support of the project. 

But it will be a short flight. The 19-foot balloon will only be up for two hours during a protest march on Friday, July 13th. 

The mayor’s office says organizers still need clearance from the metropolitan police and national air traffic service in order to fly the balloon.
