The infamous "Trump Baby" blimp was seen flying across London on Tuesday as protesters turned out in the thousands during the U.S. president's state visit, APA reports citing ABC News.

Thousands were scheduled to attend the protest on Tuesday, beginning in London's historic Trafalgar Square at 11 a.m. local time. More than 9,000 people registered to attend the protest on its Facebook page, with another 33,000 posting they were interested in attending "Together Against Trump -- stop the state visit."

The "Trump Baby" blimp, a giant balloon that depicts the president in diapers holding an iPhone, will serve as the focal point of the protests just a year after it dominated headlines during the president's last visit to the U.K.

A spokesperson from "Together Against Trump" told that the group expects protests to take place throughout the country, but that the event in Trafalgar Square is the main event.
