    The Baby Trump Balloon floats in the middle of crowds holding anti-Trump signs while the U.S. Protesters have requested a permit to fly the balloon on the National Mall on the 4th of July.

    In just 24 hours, local Democratic activists were able to lead a crowd-funding effort that raised nearly $4,000 to bring the infamous Baby Trump balloon to South Florida.

    The fundraising was done in advance of President Trump's November 26 rally in Sunrise, Florida.

    "Trump may have moved to Florida expecting to be greeted with a red carpet, but instead, he is being greeted with a retirement party," Chair of the Florida Democratic Party, Terrie Rizzo, says.

    Activists plan on flying the balloon at a counter "Defeat Trump" Tuesday.
