A "Baby Trump" balloon made an appearance in West Palm Beach, Florida, on Saturday at a rally to mark the anniversary of Hurricane Mariastriking Puerto Rico.

Protesters also planned to use the occasion as an opportunity to protest near President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort and put pressure on lawmakers to send more aid to Puerto Rico.

President Trump was not at the Florida club when protesters drove by honking their horns and waving Puerto Rican flags on Saturday. According to WPTV, attendees then went to a rally, where Florida's Democratic gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum made a surprise appearance and addressed the crowd.

The balloon that appeared in Florida is one of six "Baby Trump" balloons making their way to demonstrations around the country, according to organizers with The People's Motorcade, which is coordinating the "Baby Trump" tour.

The New Jersey-based non-profit organization bought the balloons with funds from a GoFundMe campaign after it received permission from activists in the UK who first debuted "Baby Trump."

The first "Baby Trump" balloon -- a caricature of the President that features him in a diaper with a phone in his hand, ready to tweet -- first took flight in July, when London protesters turned out to voice their distaste for Trump during his visit.

It also appeared in Edinburgh while the President played golf at his resort in southwestern Scotland.

"This is how most of the world sees Donald Trump, certainly most British people," Leo Murray, one of the activists behind the balloon. "It's a popular perception that he is a big angry baby. ... Anytime something doesn't go the way he likes, he chucks his toys out of the pram."

True or False

The balloon that appeared in Florida is one of six "Baby Trump" balloons making their way to demonstrations around the country.

被美国国家地理频道《世界伟大工程巡礼》

誉为“世界十大建筑奇迹”之一 ! 迪拜七星级酒店原班设计人马担纲设计。

耗时10年之久,花费近20亿打造,全球人工海拔最低的超五星级深坑酒店。

水下餐厅、游泳馆、健身房、水底客房、蹦极、玻璃栈道、游乐园...

After a decade of construction, the mostly subterranean Shimao Wonderland InterContinental is set to open this October inside a formerly abandoned quarry about 20 miles southwest of Shanghai. 

Of the hotel's 18 floors, 16 will be built underground and two will be submerged inside a 33-foot-deep aquarium.

Though limited information is available at this time here are a few of the project highlights that have been released.

Every room in the 336-room address -- aside from those underwater -- will feature a balcony with views of purpose-built waterfalls spilling down the quarry walls. 

The subterranean levels will include a restaurant, guest rooms, an aquarium, pool and watersports center.

For thrillseekers, the hotel makes use of its position inside a craggy pit to provide bungee jumping and rock climbing opportunities.

The architectural plan was designed to reduce impact on the environment by keeping the majority of construction within the disused pit.

In addition, the hotel plans to generate its own geothermal and solar energy to power everyday functions.

On site, there's also a green rooftop that disappears into the surrounding landscape and doubles as a place where travelers can relax and explore.

True or False

The subterranean levels will include a restaurant, guest rooms, an aquarium, pool and watersports center.

A. True          B. False        C. Not given
