A petition calling to “Prevent Donald Trump from making a State Visit to the United Kingdom,” has been gaining signatures at an alarming rate. At the time of writing it has reached more than 700,000 signatures and is getting more than 1,100 more per minute—apparently breaking records on the parliament website.
The petition, created by Graham Guest, reads as follows:
“Donald Trump should be allowed to enter the UK in his capacity as head of the US Government, but he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it 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.”
