Protesters greeted President TrumpDonald John TrumpPelosi arrives in Jordan with bipartisan congressional delegation Trump says his Doral resort will no longer host G-7 after backlash CNN's Anderson Cooper mocks WH press secretary over Fox News interview MORE on his visit to Granite City, Ill., with a giant balloon depicting him as a chicken. 

Trump delivered remarks at the U.S. Steel Co.'s Granite City Works, where he also took credit for the plant’s reopening following his increased tariffs on imports. 

Protesters lined up hours ahead of his visit to greet the president with the “Trump chicken” balloon and numerous signs attacking the president as a “liar,” calling for his impeachment, and slamming his controversial “zero-tolerance” immigration policy.

Last week, another 33-foot-tall inflatable blimp depicting Trump as a chicken captured headlines after it was reportedly seen off the coast of San Francisco.


That chicken blimp was dressed in black and white prison stripes and labeled “Prisoner 45."

A 20-foot inflatable “Trump baby" blimp also captured international attention earlier this month when it flew over the United Kingdom during the president's visit there.

The orange diaper-clad baby holding a cell phone flew over London and Edinburgh and is now at the center of a battle between British museums over who gets to add the blimp to their collection.
