A giant Baby Trump balloon that has followed the president across the world in protests of various state visits is flying over Copenhagen despite President Trump having canceled his Denmark trip.

The balloon flew over the Danish city Monday, Bloomberg reports.

It was part of a "Stop Trump" protest hosted by a range of liberal, activist groups.

The groups were protesting Trump's "sabotage of the global fight against climate change and his racist and discriminatory policies," based on a Facebook event description.

Nearly 3,000 people indicated they would attend based on the Facebook event.

Trump abruptly canceled his planned Sept. 2-3 Denmark state visit after he said Danish Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen's rejection of his proposal to purchase Greenland was "nasty" and "inappropriate."

Frederiksen said Trump's request to buy the autonomous Danish territory was "absurd."

"She’s not talking to me. She’s talking to the United States of America. You don’t talk to the United States that way," Trump told reporters a day after he canceled plans to visit Denmark.

The baby Trump balloon has greeted Trump before. The balloon flew during protests of Trump's state visit to the U.K., as well as during Washington, D.C. protests on July 4.

2. Well, they got the preferred

version of tRump. The balloon does not speak gibberish like he does. What a disgrace he is, worldwide. The people who defend him are as useless as he is. Gym Jordan should face charges from the sexual misconduct at V.U. Laura Ingraham has a "face for radio" Her face is lopsided, how was she hired as a Faux bimbo? The other little dweeb, Chavetz who "vacated" is gop seat is a joke. I can understand why Faux hired him.

4. Private donors is paying

- A giant Trump Baby balloon hovered above Copenhagen’s tourist hotspot on Monday as part of a series of demonstrations planned for the U.S. president’s now canceled visit to Denmark. A Danish computer games entrepreneur, Nicholas Francis, has agreed to cover the costs of the event, estimated at $7,350.
- The Trump Baby balloon was made after a crowdfunding campaign on crowdfunder.co.uk.
