Protesters to fly Trump baby blimp near Scottish Parliament after Glasgow rally

Protesters to fly Trump baby blimp near Scottish Parliament after Glasgow rally

A huge blimp with straw-blond hair, an orange-hued face and out-of-proportion hands that is meant to depict President Donald Trump as a baby took flight near Britain's Parliament in London for a couple hours Friday morning.

The Trumps entered the castle's Quadrangle by Range Rover after arriving on the castle grounds by helicopter.

Trump and the Queen then inspected the troops from the Coldstream Guards and he kept putting out his hand to urge her to go ahead, to step up onto the grass first, to climb the steps back onto the dias. FLOTUS, meanwhile, wore a pale Dior skirt suit, according to CNN's Kate Bennett, who also pointed out that Trump wore Dior when she met Prince Harry at last year's Invictus Games.

Trump stepped in front of the queen.

Wearing a blue jacquard coat dress and hat combination, the monarch smiled broadly as she welcomed the couple, who towered over her. She was accompanied by Lt. Col. Sir Andrew Ford, comptroller of Lord Chamberlain's Office.

After Melania was photographed in the gown, several people posted raves on Twitter about the look - even comparing the first lady to a Disney princess.

"These demonstrators gathering here on Parliament Square see him as a bigot, as a racist, as a xenophobe, as a misogynist", Barker said.

In 2015, it was Mr Johnson's turn to face the wrath of Trump who claimed parts of London were so radicalised that "police are afraid for their own lives".

The Queen chatted with the Trumps as planes were heard overhead.

Then they headed indoors and away from the cameras for their meeting over tea.

Tens of thousands of protesters marched through London on Friday to demonstrate against the USA president's visit.

He also attacked Sadiq Khan for allowing a giant "Trump baby" blimp to fly over Westminster and said the London Mayor had done a "very bad job" on tackling terrorism and crime in the capital. A series of mass demonstrations followed, with tens of thousands taking over central London's busiest avenues.

The queen has met with 11 of 12 United States presidents during her reign - the only one she didn't encounter was President Lyndon Johnson.

Trump and his wife planned a private weekend at his golf property in Glasgow before his meeting on Monday in Finland with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
