A blimp depicting President TrumpDonald John TrumpRosenstein expected to leave DOJ next month: reports Allies wary of Shanahan's assurances with looming presence of Trump States file lawsuit seeking to block Trump's national emergency declaration MORE as a baby will reportedly be in Ireland when the president visits the country this November. 

The Irish Times reported on Wednesday that the organizers who first flew the "Trump baby" blimp in London during the president's visit to the United Kingdom will “definitely” bring it to Ireland.  

“We have had expressions of interest from a number of different groups and we have yet to say conclusively who we will work with,” Kevin Smith, someone who oversees the blimp, told the newspaper.


Organizers of the "Trump baby" blimp told The Hill that a partnership will be announced on Thursday.

Ryan, who is organizing protests for Trump's visit to Ireland, accepted, and told the newspaper that it will be used as part of a series of demonstrations. 

He added that the protests will have an "Irish twist."

“We are working through the details," Ryan said, adding that he wants the protests to convey the message that Irish citizens do not support Trump visiting the nation.

"We will be doing different things in different parts of the country. It won’t just be Dublin. We will be doing Cork and Dublin and other locations.”

Ryan told the newspaper that it is unlikely protests will take place outside Trump's resort in Doonberg, Ireland. The president is expected to make a private visit to the location. 

The blimp, a 20-foot, inflatable construct depicting a diaper-clad baby, first flew over London's Parliament building during Trump's visit to the U.K. in July. 

The White House announced in late August that Trump would visit Ireland as part of a four-country tour after the midterm elections. The announcement led to Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar calling for citizens to treat the president with respect upon his arrival. 

“I know a lot of people dislike him, a lot of people object to him, a lot of people disagree with a lot of his policies, just as I do in fact,” Varadkar told national broadcaster RTE, according to Reuters. “But he is the president of America and the relationship between Ireland and the United States is much more important than any Irish government or any U.S. administration and I think we have to treat his office with the respect that it deserves."
