|Donald Trump will not be welcome to address British Parliament|
The British parliament’s Speaker of the House of Commons John Bercow said he would oppose U.S. President Donald Trump addressing the Parliament during his planned state visit.
“I feel very strongly that our opposition to racism and sexism and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are hugely important considerations,” he said to applause by SNP MPs in the chamber.
Veteran Labour MP Dennis Skinner, speaking after Mr Bercow’s statement said: “Further to that point of order: two words: well done.”
Nearly two million people signed a petition calling for Mr Trump’s state visit to be cancelled in just days after it was announced. MPs are to debate the issue in Westminster Hall.
