An activist group is hoping to protest President TrumpDonald TrumpCuban embassy in Paris attacked by gasoline bombs Trump Jr. inches past DeSantis as most popular GOP figure in new poll: Axios Trump endorses Ken Paxton over George P. Bush in Texas attorney general race MORE's planned Lincoln Memorial 4th of July address with an orange, yellow haired "Baby Trump" blimp that also appeared during his visits to the U.K. 

Feminist anti-war group Code Pink announced in a statement last week it planned to protest the president's speech. 


“The president is shifting the 4th of July festivities to celebrate his administration," said Code Pink co-founder Medea Benjamin in the statement. "We will bring together people opposed to the pain and suffering caused by this administration, from family separation at the border to supplying weapons used by Saudi Arabia to kill Yemeni children.” 

The statement said that the Baby Trump balloon will be "among the creative visuals" at the protest. 

According to The Washington Post, Code Pink requested a protest permit on Monday. 

The group wants to fly the blimp over “any open grassy area nearest to [the] Lincoln Memorial,” the Post reported, citing the National Park Service permit application. It reportedly expects 40 people to attend the protest.  

The Post last week reported that the president intends to speak at the memorial during Independence Day, which will result in the city moving its annual fireworks from the National Mall to West Potomac Park. 

The president had previously tweeted that his administration would have "one of the biggest gatherings in the history of Washington, D.C." but the Post's story had confirmation from city officials and Park Police.
