Giant Baby Trump Blimp Group Will Protest President's Fourth of July Celebration Near Lincoln Memorial

The "Baby Trump" blimp which has been following the president around the world for the past year will once again appear at protests coinciding with the Fourth of July "A Salute to America" celebrations in Washington.

The feminist anti-war activist group Code Pink confirmed they have had their application to fly the 20-foot blimp near the Lincoln Memorial at the National Mall approved hours before Trump is due to give a speech there.

The National Park Service (NPS) said the specific details of the "Freedom from Trump" protests on July 4 still need to be finalized.

"The application has been approved, meaning the demonstration will be allowed to take place, but no permit has been issued yet," Mark Litterst, chief spokesperson of the National Park Service, told ABC News. "We are working with the applicants to determine the location and specific conditions under which the demonstration will take place."

Code Pink have managed to raise more than $13,000 in donations towards their goals of getting the Baby Trump blimp to Washington.

"President Trump is planning to speak at the Lincoln Memorial on July 4, at an event named 'A Salute to America,'" the group said in a statement. "But Trump's America has been one of putting children in cages, banning refugees and immigrants, aligning with the murderous Saudi regime, supporting Israel's occupation and system of apartheid, instigating a war with Iran, and spreading hate and racism across the U.S. and the world. We say no way!"

The infamous blimp has appeared at protests against Trump all over the world since it made it its debut in London last year.

Trump is due to give a speech at the Lincoln Memorial as part of the Salute to America celebrations at 6:30 p.m. on July 4. Later the same evening, there will also a Capitol Fourth Concert held at the West lawn of the U.S. Capitol building before a huge firework display takes place at 9:07 p.m.

"I think it's safe to say without much exaggeration that this is going to be the largest fireworks show D.C. has ever seen," NPS spokesman Mike Litterst told Fox 5 D.C.

Trump has been criticized for turning the annual and non-political 4th of July celebrations in Washington into an event celebrating the military having previously cancelled a multi-million dollar parade for Veterans Day.

"We've just switched our plans from the military parade to the Fourth of July," Code Pink co-director Ariel Gold previously told The Washington Post. "We're appalled that Trump is taking that day to spew his hateful and racist rhetoric…and we really hope this gets canceled, too."
