Donald Trump’s planned visit to the UK this year became controversial

A visit of President Donald Trump in Great Britain, announced during PM May's trip to the US without specifying a precise time but expected to take place later this year became controversial for the UK people. A petition online to stop US President Donald Trump's making an official state visit to Britain had gained more than a million signatures by Monday.

The petition says Trump would be allowed into the country, but that an official state visit 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," the petition states. Any petition that gains more than 100,000 signatures must be considered for debate in the UK Parliament. Prime Minister Theresa May conceded Sunday "we do not agree with this kind of approach." Downing Street rejects visit cancellation calls. "America is a huge important ally. We have to think long term," the official position was.
