1.5 Million Brits Demand U.K. Cancel Trump’s Visit over Muslim Ban

HeadlineJan 31, 2017

Meanwhile, tens of thousands of people protested in London and in cities across Britain Monday to denounce Trump’s immigration ban, as 1.5 million Brits have signed on to a petition demanding Britain cancel Trump’s planned state visit. This is British lawmaker Sayeeda Warsi.

Sayeeda Warsi: “There comes a moment when we have to ask our government: Where do you stand? And that’s why I’m here today, not just because I believe what Trump is doing is appalling, not just because I believe it’s counterproductive, not just because I know that it will not achieve even what he says he is trying to achieve, but because I want my government to stand up and say he is wrong.”

British Prime Minister Theresa May met with President Trump on Friday in the first visit by a head of state to the White House since Trump’s inauguration.
