Parliament to Take Up Measure to ban Donald Trump from the United Kingdom


Number of people who have signed a petition demanding that billionaire businessman Donald Trump be barred from entering the United Kingdom. “British members of Parliament “are to debate calls for the US presidential candidate Donald Trump to be banned from the UK following his controversial comments about Muslims, after more than half a million people signed a petition,” the Guardian reports. “Politicians will also discuss a separate petition opposing such a ban, even though it only gained about 40,000 signatures – well below the 100,000 threshold for triggering a debate.”
