Organizers in the U.S. say they were inspired by the U.K. protest that they decided to raise money to get the blimp over to the U.S. The Hill reports that six more baby Trumps will be making its way to a city near you.

“We were inspired by the patriotic actions of our friends in the UK,” organizers stated on their GoFundme page. “We are dedicated to pushing back against Donald Trump and his administration’s assault on our democracy and the American values we hold so dear.”

In two months, organizers raised more than $20,000 to have the Baby Trump fly overhead.

All of the funds collected are being deposited into a dedicated personal account to allow for disbursements over time such as purchasing the Babies, future shipping fees while on tour, permits, security, publicity, baby sitter gear and other Baby Trump stuff,” reads the GoFundMe page.

As of now the next stop for Baby Trump is Chicago.

“We’re normal people living our normal lives, but with cameras.”

Netflix is premiering their first Mexican reality TV show and it’s all about luxury and wealth. Netflix has set their cameras on some of the rich and famous people who call Mexico City home in “Made In Mexico.” There has been some controversy when the cast was announced. Social media has been buzzing about the casting of white Mexicans and how the show portrays a rich lifestyle in a country that is plagued with poverty.

Cast members hope American can watch the show and see a real version of Mexico. Some cast members at a press event spoke about stereotypes they wish to dispel and the backlash about the casting.

The “Made In Mexico” trailer sparked backlash on social media about the casting of the show.

People have issues with the show focusing on the rich and white of Mexico. It seems that some of the disappointment stems from the fact that Netflix is the production company behind it.

When asked his reaction to the backlash, Roby Checa says “that it has a lot of heart, like, it matters.”

But the controversy might tune some people into the drama.

Kitzia Mitre thinks people should watch it first before judging the show on the race of the cast.

“They should definitely watch it,” Mitre says. “They might not like it but I think that before criticizing it and saying things like, I’ve read that they think it’s a bit too white or something or other. They should watch it.”
