An online fundraiser to bring a large balloon depicting baby President Donald Trump to El Paso reached its goal in less than a day.

More than $4,000 were raised by Laura Valdez, who says the money will cover the cost of shipping the balloon from California. 

The president is slated to visit El Paso on Monday stopping at the El Paso County Coliseum, and protesters will be outside with the balloon. 

Valdez says any leftover dollars raised will be donated to the Annunciation House, a nonprofit supporting migrants and refugees. 

The GoFundMe has since been closed.
