UPDATE :

Westminster Hall debate considering e-petitions relating to a future state visit by President Donald Trump.

Backbench Business Committee will debate them on Monday 20 February 2017 at 4:30pm

E-petition 171928

Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom

"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."

E-petition 178844

Donald Trump should make a State Visit to the United Kingdom

"Donald Trump should be invited to make an official State Visit because he is the leader of a free world and U.K. is a country that supports free speech and does not believe that people that oppose our point of view should be gagged."
