Brits Look to Ban Donald Trump from State Visit, Says He's an Embarrassment – blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Over 1 million people have signed a British petition to deny DonaldTrump entry to a state dinner with the queen because of his divisive language and misogynistic actions, prior to and throughout his campaign and presidency. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of 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 petition comes on the heels of Trump’s controversial executive order, which restricted access to the United States for travelers from seven Muslim-majority nations. The new order sparked outrage across the country and massive protests in several airports around the nation, as officials began to enforce the controversial action, by detaining and deporting travelers, even those with green-cards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ According to reports in the British media, several travelers with British passports were turned away at the border as well. However, Trump officials have since said that British dual citizens from the banned countries will be allowed in the country. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As a result, sometime Sunday afternoon, as many as 1,000 people each minute signed the British petition to block Trump’s admission to the state dinner. The petition was expected to hit one million by Monday morning, which would require consideration by the Parliament. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The Parliament considers any petition with over 100,000 signatures, the petition reached 1 million, therefore, it will be discussed at an upcoming session.
