  • British Lawmakers to Debate Donald Trump’s UK Visit

    Published on February 21, 2017

    TrumpLondon: British Parliament will debate US President Donald Trump’s proposed visit to the UK after a petition opposing the tour amassed nearly two million signatures.

    The House of Commons will debate an online petition with more than 1.8 million signatures saying a formal state visit by President Trump would cause embarrassment to the Queen.

    A second petition in support of such a state visit had attracted over 300,000 signatures and will also be debated in line with UK parliamentary rules requiring petitions receiving more than the 100,000 signatures to be considered for a Commons debate.

    British Prime Minister Theresa May has already officially rejected the ‘Prevent Donald Trump from making state visit to the United Kingdom’ petition.
