British petition aims to bar Trump from visiting UK

But the rate at which it appears to be gathering signatures has led to some on social media to compare the petition with another appeal hosted on the parliament website past year, which demanded the United Kingdom hold another referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union (EU) after voters opted for Brexit. If it reaches 100,000, it will be considered for debate in Parliament.

There has been outrage around the world after President Trump banned refugees and people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the US.

The website says parliament considers all petitions that get more than 100,000 signatures for debate.

Initially, Mr Guest said, he was not concerned about Mr Trump coming to the United Kingdom in his capacity as US President - he just did not want him to meet and embarrass the 90-year-old monarch, given his track record of "misogyny and vulgarity".

Mr Guest said there was not a specific thing Mr Trump had done that spurred him to start the petition, it was just the President's general demeanour.

A petition has been launched to try and prevent Donald Trump from making a state visit to the UK.

"The petition is really just to make as much noise as possible and put the spotlight on him and what an very bad person he is".

News of Trump's visit to Britain to meet the Queen was revealed during Prime Minister Theresa May's visit to the US.

Last year, nearly 600,000 people signed a separate petition calling for the 70-year-old to be banned from travelling to the UK.

"It's added a new dimension to things and until that ban is lifted I don't think he should come to the country at all in any capacity".

British premiere extended an invitation for a state visit from the Queen, during her two-day visit to the USA last week, making her the first leader to have a face-to-face meeting with the new president.

Details of where the visit will take place have not been revealed.
