Protesters are now reportedly waiting for permission to fly the balloon from the Metropolitan Police. 

The Stop Trump Coalition, which is organizing the effort, is also reportedly waiting until it hits its £30,000 ($37,914) fundraising goal before flying the balloon.

Anna Vickerstaff, one of the organizers, told The Times that the money is supposed to go toward organizations “pushing back against the politics of hate and division.”

“We’re all for making a joke out of Trump but we won’t let the opportunity pass to support those fighting the very serious impacts of what he’s doing,” she said.

Thousands of protesters are expected to attend demonstrations protesting the president’s visit to the U.K. 

Trump was also met with massive protest during his state visit to the U.K. last year.

At the time, Trump said that although he “used to love London as a city,” he felt “unwelcome” because of the demonstrations.
