Fundraiser aims to bring baby Trump balloon to President’s Lexington rally


LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ)- Concerned Citizens for the Center LEX and KFK Kentucky are raising money to bring a giant balloon to Lexington that depicts President Donald Trump as a whining baby.

The balloon has become famous, seen across the world at protests during the President’s travels.

The groups are using Go Fund Me to bring the balloon to Lexington Monday, just a day before the general election, for Mr. Trump’s Keep America Great Rally, during which he has said he will campaign for Governor Matt Bevin.

As of this writing, they have raised almost $2,500 of a $5,000 goal.

The group says it has found a spot from which to inflate the balloon and plans to do so secretly; only those who donate to the campaign will be told where that will happen.
