The Tell: Petition for U.K. to bar Trump state visit nears 1.4 million signatures

More than 1 million signatures have been gathered in the U.K. in a petition drive that calls for the British government to stop a state visit by U.S. President Donald Trump.

The U.K. parliament will have to consider putting the issue up for debate because the petition on the legislative body’s website notched more than 100,000 signatures.

The petition, which was launched by a solicitor in Leeds, England, doesn’t call for Trump to be denied entry into the U.K. “But he should not be invited to make an official State Visit because it would cause embarrassment to Her Majesty the Queen,” the petition reads.
