Khan, who has been a persistent critic of the president, approved the request after thousands of people signed a crowdfunding campaign that raised more than $18,000 for the "Trump baby" zeppelin.

London newspaper the Evening Standard carried a statement from a spokesman for Kahn, which said: "The Mayor supports the right to peaceful protest and understands that this can take many different forms". The mayor's operations team met with the activists and gave them permission to use the square as a "grounding point", the outlet reports.
That's a reversal from last week, when city officials denied the group permission to fly the "Trump Baby" blimp over Parliament Square.
