This is how British repays America for supporting Brexit.
The British parliament is reportedly holding a debate on calls to cancel Donald Trump’s state visit.
UK mainstream media The Guardian reported:
The British parliament will hold a debate on calls to cancel Donald Trump’s state visit, due to be hosted by the Queen this year, after 1.6 million people signed a petition in support of scrapping or downgrading the invitation.
The debate will be held in Westminster Hall on 20 February and will also consider a rival petition in support of the US president’s visit, which has 114,000 signatures.
The petition committee announced the debate after protests around the country over Trump’s controversial executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from travelling to the US and suspending the nation’s refugee programme.
The petition states: “Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US government, but he should not be invited to make an official state visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen.
“Donald Trump’s well-documented misogyny and vulgarity disqualifies him from being received by Her Majesty the Queen or the Prince of Wales. Therefore during the term of his presidency Donald Trump should not be invited to the United Kingdom for an official state visit.”
The rival petition in support of Trump’s visit says: “Donald Trump should be invited to make an official state visit because he is the leader of a free world and [the] UK is a country that supports free speech and does not believe that people that appose [sic] our point of view should be gagged.”
MPs have previously debated the idea of banning Trump from the UK after he called during the presidential race for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on”.
