While Donald Trump faces mounting opposition from members of the media, federal lawmakers and fellow White House hopefuls, another anti-Trump effort is taking place across the pond.
A new petition to keep the Republican presidential hopeful from entering the United Kingdom due to "his continued, unrepentant hate speech" could be considered for a debate in Parliament.
The petition, created by Scottish resident Suzanne Kelly and submitted to U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May, cites precedent for government officials banning individuals from entering the U.K. due to their offensive rhetoric. May banned U.S. rapper Tyler, the Creator from entering the country in late August based on lyrics from one of his songs, and two anti-Muslim U.S. bloggers were banned from entry in 2013.
"The signatories believe Donald J. Trump should be banned from U.K. entry for his continued, unrepentant hate speech and unacceptable behaviour. His unacceptable behaviour is well documented, and we feel it foments racial, religious and nationalistic intolerance, which should not be welcome in the U.K.," reads a draft of the petition, obtained by the Washington Examiner.
