British MPs debate ban on Trump

Donald Trump

TVCE (LONDON)  – British members of Parliament on Monday debated whether to ban US presidential hopeful Donald Trump from entering the country for “hate speech” after his controversial comments targeting Muslims, Mexicans and others.

The debate is the direct result of an online petition which has garnered more than 574,000 signatures but the government, which has the ultimate say, has already said it will not go ahead with any ban.

British lawmakers are obliged to consider for debate any petition on the government’s official petitions website that reaches 100,000 signatures.

Prime Minister David Cameron has called the outspoken billionaire’s remarks on Muslims “divisive, stupid and wrong” but said he was opposed to a ban.

“I think if he came to visit our country, he would unite us all against him,” he said earlier.

No decisions are going to be taken at the end of the debate, for which three hours have been allocated.
