The group initially planned to fly the Baby Trump balloon at a military parade that the president announced last year, the Post reported. However, that parade was cancelled amid questions over its price tag.
"We've just switched our plans from the military parade to the Fourth of July," Code Pink co-director Ariel Gold told the Post. "We're appalled that Trump is taking that day to spew his hateful and racist rhetoric … and we really hope this gets canceled, too."
Trump in February announced his plans to speak at the Lincoln Memorial for the Fourth of July. He said the event will include a “major fireworks display, entertainment and an address by your favorite president, me!”
Details surrounding the event have yet to be released, even to organizers of local events in Washington, WRC-TV reported. Washington Mayor Muriel Bowser told the news station last month that officials believed they would likely need to move the annual fireworks show to West Potomac Park to accommodate the president's speech.
"The latest that we've heard is that there will be a speech," Bowser told WRC-TV last month. "We don't have the fine details of the plan yet."
