Petition to stop Trump's visit to UK attracts over 500,000 signaturesJanuary 30, 2017 12:09
More than 895,000 people have signed a petition demandingDonald Trump's state visit to the UK be cancelled in the wake of his Muslim travel ban.
The enormous response easily passed the 100,000 target needed for MPs to consider holding a debate on the motion in the House of Commons this morning, with more and more people flocking to sign it.
It is currently rising at an average of more than 1,000 signatures per minute and is already the third most popular petition in Parliament's history.
Plans for a state visit for President Trump were only announced 48 hours ago when Theresa May revealed he had accepted an invitation from the Queen.
Today's online petition, backed by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and Lib Dem leader Tim Farron, says the US President should no longer be invited to avoid embarrassing the Queen.
