Thousands to Rally in Britain as Lawmakers Debate Canceling Trump’s State Visit

HeadlineFeb 20, 2017

In Britain, as many as 10,000 people are expected to join an anti-Trump protest today, as the British Parliament holds a debate on whether to cancel Trump’s state visit to Britain. Nearly 2 million Brits have signed on to a petition calling for Trump’s visit to be canceled. This is British Parliament member Tulip Siddiq.

Tulip Siddiq: “This is a man who has tainted the Muslim communities of seven different countries with the same brush. If we allow Donald Trump into our country on a state visit, what kind of message are we sending to future generations? History will judge us if we allow this man to come to our country without asking him questions first.”
