Almost 1,000 people gathered to watch the blimp launch in Parliament Change this morning ahead of two large protests organised in the city.
Critics of Mr Trump picture him as crude, volatile and opposed to popular values on a range of issues.
Sundry British politicians, however, have criticised the London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s part for approving the blimp, viewing the ’special relationship’ with the US as a pillar of UK imported policy.
In an interview with The Sun newspaper ahead of this visit, Mr Trump denoted: “I guess when they put out blimps to make me feel unwelcome, no grounds for me to go to London.”
How much did the balloon fetch?
Campaigners raised almost £18,000 to pay for the inflatable, which they conjectured reflects Mr Trump’s character as an “angry baby with a fragile ego and negligible hands”.

Mr Khan defended the decision to allow the balloon to fly as he “reinforces the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take scads different forms”.
More than 10,000 people signed a call upon calling for the inflatable to be given permission to fly, activists said.
