CAROLINA SARASSA, ANCHOR, UNEWS: And this past weekend in Alabama, the “Baby Trump” balloon was slashed and deflated. The popular protest symbol against President Trump was floating amongst the football fans at the big game in Tuscaloosa. According to authorities, a man struck the balloon with a knife, and run off (sic). Police managed to arrest him and a getaway driver. The Baby Trump balloon gained prominence in July 2018, after it was seen floating over the British Houses of Parliament for two hours during protests against Trump’s visit in the U.K. Since that time the balloon, designed by Matt Banner, has appeared in a number of places including Scotland and New Jersey.
