Leo Murray, who is behind the crowdfunded idea, said: "[Mr Trump] really seems to hate it when people make fun of him.

"So when he visits the UK on Friday, we want to make sure he knows that all of Britain is looking down on him and laughing at him.

"That's why a group of us have chipped in and raised enough money to have a six-metre high blimp made by a professional inflatables company, to be flown in the skies over Parliament Square during Trump's visit."

A statement on behalf of the London mayor said he "supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms".

After meeting with the organisers of the Trump Baby, Mr Khan's city operations team gave them permission to "use Parliament Square Garden as a grounding point for the blimp".

....Oh Mr Khan. You've done it this time.

Theres nowt wrong with no nukes, its just without leverage Trump cant pressure so he has no intention of giving up nukes.
Thats what unilateralism is.
Just as hes using threats of pulling out of Nato, or trade barriers etc.

Hes got no tricks other than using leverage.

Were Trump's actions and words courteous and decent enough to his hosts? I'm glad, much unlike the heavily criticised and bashed Obama by many on here, he was careful to not involve himself into British domestic politics regarding Brexit either.
Report dustybin July 13, 2018 8:25 AM BST
Its comical that those Brexiteers think that Trump's attempts at breaking up all things so he can extract the margin will be somehow beneficial for Britain.
He is attempting to create chaos and disrupt all entities he doesn't control.
His undermining of the Prime Minister by suggesting anything other than hard brexit will result in no agreement with the USA is usual trump tactics of implied threats.
So Britain breaks with its biggest trade partner just to hope Trump offers a beneficial agreement of far lesser worth with the States?
Knowing full well that 'he is a businessman' and will extract all value and wealth, firstly for himself, then secondly for the minions who support him (deferred value) at the cost to whoever he's 'doing business with', since thats what business is, running your competitors into the ground and stealing their wealth.

No you quite obviously indicated that you were part of some violent far right gang who would police the demonstrators.

"bottled it" - why would I go to Helsinki? Why would I protest? It's just the venue for a meeting in another country.  Although I imagine there will be some Finns protesting.  Are you going there to fight them?  Did you go to Singapore to fight anyone when Trump met Kim?

Is the Quora a reliable source?
Quora is an information exchange site that discourages low-quality answers and requires users to use their real name to sign up. ... However, as anyone can answer your question, and there is no machine that magically removes all wrong answers, Quora cannot guarantee that the people answering your question will be right.


Is the Quora credible?
Quora is not a source of information or an editor of information. Quora is a forum, just like yahoo answers. So basically Quora is neither credible and neither not credible.
