Matthew Bonner’s “Trump Baby balloon” to be displayed at the Museum of London

The Museum of London will soon have a new display that acknowledges the Trump presidency — and its controversy. The museum has acquired the "Trump Baby" balloon that has been flown at protests around the world.

The Trump Baby was created in 2018 by British artist Matthew Bonner and was first flown over Parliament Square in London during a 2018 demonstration protesting President Trump's visit to the United Kingdom, the Museum of London said in a press release.

The balloon's first flight was approved by London Mayor Sadiq Khan after more than 10,000 people signed a petition and more than 1,000 people raised over $20,000 through a crowdfunding campaign.

The balloon has made appearances at demonstrations in cities all over the world, including in Florida in 2019 when Mr. Trump held a rally there after announcing he had switched his residency from New York to the Sunshine State.

 

Since 2019, the Museum of London has been hoping to acquire the balloon, which looks like a cartoon version of Mr. Trump wearing a diaper and an angry scowl.

"Having toured the world the Trump Baby blimp is now heading to its final resting place, the Museum of London, where it will be conserved and potentially displayed in the museum's future new home in West Smithfield in the coming years," the museum said in its press release.
