The Republican wants to be the next president of the United States, but because of his hateful, racist rhetoric, countries are already trying to ban him from entering their borders.
A petition to ban Donald Trump from going to the UK was started a few days ago. Its goal was to reach 100,000 signers in hopes that the measure gets debated by the Parliament. It now has well over 200,000 signatures.
“The UK has banned entry to many individuals for hate speech. The same principles should apply to everyone who wishes to enter the UK,” read the petition, which was created bySuzanne Kelly, a woman from Aberdeen, Scotland, who has previously campaigned against Trump’s political and business activities.
“If the United Kingdom is to continue applying the ‘unacceptable behavior’ criteria to those who wish to enter its borders, it must be fairly applied to the rich as well as poor, and the weak as well as powerful,” the petition stated.
By Wednesday afternoon, the petition had gained more than 200,000 signatures, and the number was climbing rapidly.0
