‘Baby Trump’ balloon knifed and deflated in Alabama

A “Baby Trump” balloon has been knifed and deflated in Alabama.

The 6.1m (20ft) tall balloon had been set up in a park as the US president watched a football game nearby.

But a man who appeared to be unhappy with the orange, nappy-clad, mobile-phone-clutching caricature of Mr Trump ran at the balloon with a knife – cutting an 8ft gash in the back.

The unidentified man was subsequently arrested by police in Tuscaloosa.

A spokesperson for the Baby Trump Tour, a campaign group that “adopts” out the balloons for protests around the US, told Sky News: “One crazed Trump supporter will not stop us from our mission to save our democracy. We persist to resist!”
