A crowd-funding campaign to get an infantile inflatable of the London mayor crushed its fundraising goal in less than 24 hours following reports that London Mayor Sadiq Khan approved a float of a baby President Donald Trump to fly while Trump visits London.
“In light of the Donald Trump ‘Baby Trump’ [balloon] being allowed to fly over London during his visit to the U.K., let’s get a ‘baby Khan’ one and see if FREE SPEECH applies to all and whether or not [London Mayor Sadiq Khan] and the London assembly will also approve this,” the campaign’s description reads.
Khan approved a “baby Trump” float for Trump’s July 13 visit to London, where a planned protest is scheduled to take place by vocal opponents of Trump, Sky News reported.
The “baby Khan” campaign was so successful it entered “stretch” fundraising, wherein the extra money will go toward a second float, this one being Brexit-themed. Any surplus after that will go to a charity, the campaign says.
Trump was a strong supporter of the U.K. leaving the European Union, and Brexit leader Nigel Farage even joined then-candidate Trump on the campaign trail in the 2016 election.
Created by Yanny Bruere, the “baby Khan” campaign has raised almost 14,000 pounds, 4,000 more than its 10,000-pound target goal. (RELATED: London Mayor Approves Giant Blimp Of Trump In A Diaper To Fly Over London During President’s UK Visit)
The appeal reads: “To have a giant size Sadiq Khan, ‘Baby Khan’ balloon fly over London to demonstrate our unhappiness with him as our Mayor of London.”
Some vocal London citizens have demonstrated against the London mayor, particularly with his progressive rhetoric and crime-related policies.
“Under Sadiq Khan, we have seen crime sky rocket to unprecedented levels. People in London don’t feel safe and they aren’t safe, 81 murders this year alone! Khan Out,” the campaign added.
