Republican candidate Donald Trump has been at the center of attention ever since he decided to run for president. With his controversial opinions, many believe he isn’t fit to run America however, others support him. The United Kingdom decided to throw a curveball Trump’s way: banning him completely from their country.

Over the course of the numerous debates that have taken place, Trump has unveiled the many plans he would carry out if he were to be elected as president. One of his most controversial plans is to build a 2,000 mile long wall that runs from California to Texas, to stop Mexican immigrants from illegally crossing the border into The United States.

He also accused most of the people legally immigrating to the U.S. from Mexico of being drug dealers, and rapists. At the third republican debate hosted by CNBC, Trump stated that they aren’t “sending their best people.”

Not only has he expressed his negative feelings towards Mexicans, but towards Muslims as well.

During a Pearl Harbor Day rally aboard the USS Yorktown in South Carolina, Donald Trump announced to a crowd of supporters that he would like Muslims to be completely banned from travelling into the United States. He then promised, if elected president, that he wouldn’t allow them to step foot on American soil.

During an interview on MSNBC, Trump stated that he would “strongly suggest” that all mosques be shutdown to prevent future deaths like the attacks in Paris that are suspected to have been committed by members of the terrorist group ISIS.

During an interview with MSNBC he stated that “some of the absolute hatred is coming from these areas [Syria],” and that he wants Muslims out of the country until our country can “figure out what’s going on.”

Suzanne Kelly, a woman who lives in the U.K. took offense to this, so she decided to take it to the internet where the problem could be addressed. She created an online petition to try to attract the attention of the United Kingdom’s government, and have Trump completely banned from the U.K.

So far over 570,000 people have signed the online petition that Kelly created. The amount of people required for the Trump’s ban to be debated in Parliament is 100,000 signatures according to CNN London.

The petition specifically requested that Trump be barred from the country, meaning he would not be allowed to set foot onto U.K. grounds. Since the amount of signatures required was exceeded, it will definitely be brought up to Parliament on January 18th, 2016 at Westminster Hall.

Trump wouldn’t be the first person to be banned from the U.K– he would join the 101 individuals that have been previously banned according to The Huffington Post.
